Its great for the show to spark an interest, but to mislead people into thinking that they can keep cow fish, mandarins, emperor angels and so on as no problem at all (not to mention keeps them together and adding them all at the same time) sends a VERY bad message. People need to be aware of the requirements that these animals have before taking on the care of them.. The show Tanked promotes everything but that

I couldn't agree more, its sad what happens....seeing 20 fish in a 10 gallon tank that wasn't cycled.

The one question I have always had was who does the maintenance? I would hope the ATM guys would have a network of people that they use.

I know someone that knows one of the owners of the Dunkin in Riviera Beach, Fl I am going to ask him who does his maintenance.

I know of a couple of guys locally that do maintenance on SW tanks in the big homes on the beach in Palm Beach so I will try to find out more info.

That's an interesting idea. There are enough of us to check all the tanks we have seen. I wish we had a way to set some of them right. No reason that doughnut tank, with a real filtration system couldn't house a bunch of damsels.

There are a bunch of their tanks and idea that COULD work, if done properly.. It's just really hard to support something that was rushed and no thought was taken into the care for the ankmals being out in it..

The ocean houses some of the most beautiful inhabitants imaginable, and if you are going to take on the responsibility of caring for them, the you need to do it right. That being said, a bubble gum machine in LA is no place for an aquarium

You need to find the thread in the cowfish tank. A guy said that he lives near there and they had to restock, because %75 of the fish died.

Neither do they! Just that they could make some quick cash. We could be better by solely caring about the animals.
