Yeah I was watching tanked with my parents the othernight and told them how stupid those guys were to add all of the fish at the same time but my mom said that they know what they are doing even though they obviously don't.arghhh. that show is stupid and all of those poor fish prolly don't last a week in those horribly over stocked tanks...

In this case, you're right IMO. Parents are usually right, but every now and then...(I am a parent).

They are using a "natural sea water" and adding a bottle of bacteria. That doesn't constitute a cycle and I should think that their fish losses would be extreme. Several posters on this forum live in Vegas and have reported mixed results with ATM installs.

Fish tank kings I like better as well. There's supposed to be a new season coming up shortly. I do wish there was a show that did actual corals instead of the tuner ones like mentioned above not very interesting.

If no talent hacks like the Kardashians can get rich shaking their butts, there is a place for the guys at "Tanked".

Most of their creations end up on Ebay. If I had one wish for the show, it would be that they were forced to show a fast forward 6 months to see how the fish were, ehhem, doing.

One thing that does get in my crawl and rubs salt in the wound is their bottle-o-insta cycle that I see advertised in TFH. They look like real dip shi+s standing there with a thumbs up as if to say ".....and you can too".

Wayde says, “We make sure any of the fish that we’re going to get are eating and are in good shape and condition. Reality TV is reality TV; most of the time everything looks like it’s done overnight. We don’t want people to think that it’s being done overnight—people need to understand that all the builds and everything that we do, they don’t happen instantaneously; it takes time. We do whatever we can to ensure the proper environment for the fish, whether it be food, feeding, so forth and so on.” I get what u guys are saying but I also think the editing process doesn't let us see everything. I seriously doubt that if all of their tanks crashed and all the fish died they would still be in business. It's a tv show and its meant to entertain. And they run a business and the client is gonna want what they want. And some of those tanks are ridiculous I agree. The outside vineyard tank comes to mind. But I take it for what it is just like Duck Dynasty.

It was the outside gum ball tank, the skateboard tank and the vineyard tank was the last straw. I don't think fish are ornaments. But that's the diver in me talking. I am impressed by their acrylic work with out doubt. I just don't like the casual way they make the long term care and success of the aquarium. You get the impression that the customer will keep the tank till the $10,000 in fish all die, then scrap it and put in a new cool thing.

I watch and wonder, how would you possibly clean that thing?

Yea the making of the tanks not over night most o the time they even say two week deadlines but you can't argue them throwing in the sand and cycling isn't within the hours that they set up the tank... They even show it .. They set up tank fill it up and throw in fish because the customers wants to see
