Greg have you been to the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco? If not I think you would enjoy it next time you're out this way. They have a massive reef of the Phillipine Sea with quite the giant clam collection. My wife rather likes that one too seeing as she is from there lol.

We have some pretty good aquariums here at the Omaha zoo. A tunnel that the roof and sides are a HUGE shark tank. We have a stringray petting zoo (employees work it). There's a reef tank that you can from above onto. The huge cylinder jellyfish tank is awesome. Then there's numerous huge reef tanks throughout.

It is kind of on topic because the issue with Tanked is the disappointment with how cool a show it could have been for us aquarium nerds. But that's the problem, there aren't enough of us to pay for the production of a major cable show. It needs to corral people that care less about fish. For instance, the Church Tank should have been 3 episodes. Who cares about the pinball tank. But a few of them were worth watching the engineering it took to build them.

So what we need is enough capitol and a "know the business" of promoting a pilot episode insider who can translate our love for the hobby to a channel like The Learning Channel or Discovery, etc. Then all us fish nerds could be content that our hobby could be a worthwhile, entertaining, educational, and ethical television program that could do what Tanked does do (in the sense of creating non hobbyists interest in the world of aquaria) while remaining true to what is right and good for the livestock and habitats we care for. All until some producer decided we needed fake drama and time shortened builds & pranks lol!

Hey guys I found this little blog someone wrote about the show. I am not going to say the blogger is write or wrong on the specific tanks he mentioned, but just look at the comment left by someone claiming to be Phillip Dominguez, a rep for ATM, or so he says. Just read his comment it should be the first one.

The person leaving the comment was a total d***. He even insulted the blogger personally.

Oh boy, some of the comments from other people on that post make my skin crawl. Attacking the poster for 'hating' when they clearly know nothing about aquariums. How can they attack at something they know zero about?

I agree man. It is pretty sad. It is just like uninformed people talking about politics.
