I'm just saying, the show is to show how they build aquariums and everything. Its not about what's in them. Its about the aquarium itself. And the process they go through to build it. Its not to learn about actually keeping fish.

I thought it was pretty stupid. I was hoping it would be more of showing extreme tanks. Instead, it was showing how they're built and how they think up the ideas and a lot of grab-your-crotch kind of barbs between the guys. I'm not much for The Three Stooges kind of humor. We probably won't watch it again.

In the show's defense, I very much enjoyed the visit to the guy who sold them the fish. But even then, I hated watching that doofus putting his hand in the tank and squeezing the dog faced puffer. I wanted to give him a good slap upside the head.

Using damsels is both cruel and unnecessary. Fishless cycling done with pure ammonia or decaying shrimp works just as well.

You can definitely cycle with damsels, but all the water changes are going to be a waste of money. You can even cycle with the damsels, and NOT change the water, but that's cruel.
