An idyllic picture of serenity, but only if you’re not inside

The New York Times: A study led by biology lecturer Ronald G. Oldfield found that fish kept in small tanks were considerably more aggressive than those in larger tanks. “In larger tanks, the fish were not in continuous eyesight of each other, and were swimming around checking everything out rather than beating the heck out of each other,” he said.
