+1 with mfdrookie516

It's more for entertainment ... with some education. BTW ... who saw the trivia that Goldfish don't have stomachs.

I'd imagine there was ALOT of editing of ALOT of acclimating and prepping the water we did not see. One of the brothers did mention during the mob tank about getting the temps and pH right. Besides .. the filtration's got to be big $$ ... looks more like pool filtration.

As for tank maintenance ... high end customers like those on the show hire companies to come do that type of stuff. Who know's maybe the part of the brothers business is also tank maintenance? I figure if you build them ... why not also offer to maintain them = $$$$$$$$$$$$$$$. I can almost guarantee no hotel / casino employee's going to gravel vac. Next time you go to your doctors / dentist office and see those elaborate reef tanks ... take a look at the staff and ask yourself ... who'd doing PWC's?

I like how they went through all that work to put the tvs in there. But they choose the worst coby models.

As I watched the show all I could think was-the bloggers at aquarium advice are gonna have fun with this. I know how creative all of you are....but...Like has been previously commented-When did they cycle the tank? I've been looking at an empty cycling tank for 2 weeks- it isn't fun but necessary. The show was entertaining but I hope it doesn't encourage people to get a tank and think it is that easy to dump in the water and go. More education would make the show more real.

Another perfect example of reality based garbage being presented to the public, just another reason why I don't ever watch television.

The idea that fishless cycling is a necessity is a misnomer as well, at least in freshwater tanks, I know nothing about SW.

Fish-in cycling can be done safely and easily, just like with fishless cycling, it takes education and understanding of the process.

I hope they show some amano-type aquascaped tanks soon.

It's a lot easier to do fish in cycling in freshwater than in saltwater, because you are basically wasting money using up salt mix because you couldn't wait for fish. Other than that, fish in cycling can be done in saltwater too. It's just too much work, for no reason.

I can agree that its not established as an educational show, but the producers and tv network still choose to ignore the informational value of the show. Even though its to be for show and entertainment, its still sending the wrong messages, I love the show because, as many on here, I understand the principles of this hobby. But to new people to the hobby, just sends the wrong signals

Yeah, it's an alright show. I definitely won't be anticipating the show every week, but if it's on, I'll watch it.
