There is another thread about that one. A person said they live near there and went to the place. There was another company there scooping out dead fish. They lost a lot of their original stock.

My wife and kids love the show and think I am an idiot. They always say those guys are experts and put lots of fish in at the same time. They want me to run my tank like those guys. . Thanks ATM.

I think I might cry.. I just spent the last 30 or so minutes typing out an email to Brent King from Tanked.. I was almost done when the computer glitched and now my whole email is gone... sigh..

In short, I was respectfully telling him basically what has been/is being talked about on here.. I know its a long shot that he would ever read it, much less take it to heart, but at least I can try. Hey, if we ALL send him emails, I am sure he would have to read one of them eventually..

oh well..

You are right and they are wrong. Tell them not to believe what they see on tv.

So I checked out the tank today, as I said I am a FW guy, yes I fish a lot (being I live right on the water and my job is at a Marina) and know SW species (the ones you eat) I just don't know the ones they put in tanks....There was a total of 12 fish in the tank, I took some pics of three fish at the top that didn't look like they were doing that well. The presentation itself is impressive, the reef or whatever the heck it was looked cheap, as stuck on cheap, if I would have paid for that I would have told them you got to do better than that. There is no place for fish to hide, the corals looked stuck on, my wife said it almost look like a maze and it was disappointing.

The link from the Palm Beach Post says its 75 gallons and it would hold 20 fish. When I looked at the tank it looked crowded. So if they put in 20 fish that means 8 have died? No way 20 fish should be in a tank of that size. Most of the fish were 5 to 6 inches or more in length. Like I said I know zero about SW fish so I have zero clue about bio loads etc.

Here are the pics and the link to the Palm Beach Post Article.
