On top of all the morality issues, the tank looks horrible! Who would pay money for that? If I had tanked come into my place of business and that was the end result, they would be fired.

I'm with you mr_X, it looks pretty horrible. I don't know why they'd put that shark in there of all the possibilities. Oh well, I'm guessing things will go on as they were before this; it's just one small speck of negativity when so many people enjoy watching it.

That's just sad. What's worse is the plans to replace the whitetip and hopefully put the blacktip back in, while leaving the ugly centerpiece that killed the first whitetip shark.

It's really sad that an animal had to die for more people to see how bad some of the aquariums are. I feel bad posting this because I kind of like that show.

This is really sad. They should never have put sharks in there in the first place. There are plenty of other fish they could have used that would have worked out just fine.

I like the show fish tank kings. They have a marine biologist who selects fish for the tank and the inserts are not over the top. I was inspired by that show to make my username for reef central to be fish geek.
