They do a pretty good show to do an average of 3-4 builds in an hour block.
Yeah, you gotta realize that only aquarium hobbyists would be interested in all of the technical stuff where as the general audience will be interested by scenes of big interesting tanks, cool fish, coupled with the side of drama/antics and would probably be bored by correct procedure and or all the behind the scenes stuff they're not showing. The technical stuff of aquariums. If you get what I'm saying

Cant help but notice that the shows not even truly about the tanks or fish, its about the family
That reminds me of american choppers. It focuses more on the family dynamics and junior/senior than it does the bikes. Maybe they're trying to do the same except with building tanks

All the popular shows are...

American Chopper
Sons of Guns
Lizard Lick Towing
Operation Repo

Those are probably 4 of my favorite shows (aside from the network series that come on soon... NCIS, etc). They all have interesting content, but have a lot of the family drama in them. That's what people like to see, so that's what they like. Just like supply and demand. Lots of people want something, they make lots of it. You can thank big brother for that.

Im currently beating big brother with a stick... I understand all the dynamics behind why its formatted the way it is, but if they'd cut the completely fake and scripted stuff, they could feature another build or two each show. I don't mind the thestrics to an extent, but I do mind being treated like a mindless retarded one-celled organism. People actually think that these shows are real? (Atleast the drama part)

Am I the only one that thinks this, or is the husband almost similar to the husband from king of queens??? Love the show, but it does give off tue wrong impressions on setting up tanks right off the bat to people that have no idea what they are doing. I wish it was that easy
