I know I am stepping on some toes but I cannot stand bare tanks. Nothing but fish, no substrate, no plants, rocks , wood. Anything. Makes me feel sorry for the fish and science has proven that it mentally stunts the fish
I am guilty of this one... with most of my grow out tanks. It's hard to move monster fish around when there are obstacles in the tanks...fish panic when they sense/see nets and ram into stuff. 80% of my tanks are for growing out. I do, however have a few tanks that have driftwood and/or plants in them. :)

I’d say about 25% of the tanks I come across on Craigslist. They are either bare with crazy big fish in them or just filled with fake, bright neon, cartoony decor.
I’d also have to say any tank with glowfish drive me nuts. That would currently include my tank with my kids two glotetras in it. I cring every time I look at them. This is what happens when you let kids pick any fish they want. Ugh.

Now I myself am guilty of having many fake plants, volcano bobbler, and a treasure chest/scuba diver bobbler in my tank. Lol
Once I got more serious into fish keeping my taste turned to more natural decor. No more fake plants for me.
