I believe this is just a mini-series to gauge the audience, if it does good theyll prob bring it in for a true season.... But after following these comments and remarks, idk if itll honestly get picked up

Ok so I lost all respect for the show when they put a sweet lips in the 90g keg tank. . . b
BUT im watching another episode and did appreciate the time they took to mention acclimation and possible diseases from poor acclimation

Maybe that was it. Either way its pathetic, although the tank is 280 odd gallons, the sweet lips can get up to 3 feet long ... not good for a round tank

wow, didn't realize that. perhaps they have some kind of deal where they take them back after so long... who knows. Definitely a lot going on behind the scenes. Based on the limited knowledge we've been able to see, it sounds to me like they really know what they're doing. It's just getting masked behind all the deleted scenes.

Def is alot of stuff going on behind the scenes which is what upsets me, they spend soooo much time focusing on pointless drama bs. Just wish it would focus on a lil more tanks

They are already booked for another season and in a later post you said your happy they mentioned acclimation but they mentioned it in every episode and there is not much drama just some antics but that gets us to know the cast I think it's funny and love the show just don't over think it and enjoy the show

There is some drama, but what do you expect from a show marketed as a reality show? Don't get me wrong, I watch it and enjoy it, but I do think it could be better. I just don't think they should go in detail about everything that some people want to see... it would be boring for me, and most likely boring for those that aren't already involved in the hobby. They do a pretty good show to do an average of 3-4 builds in an hour block.

But they truly talked about it in the qt tank episode. And I try not to overthink it but its plain as day to see that almost the whole show is scripted. All in all I feel that animal planet took a genuinely interesting company and show possibility, but had to try and spice it up with pointless extra drama. Cant help but notice that the shows not even truly about the tanks or fish, its about the family

Keep in mind the average joe watching the show has very limited knowledge of fish husbandry and isn't upset or vexed upon seeing a fish that grows to 3' placed into a 90 gallon tank.
