I watched part of one episode of tanked.

Client with more money than brains: "We want a tank with sharks and aligators"

Tanked guys: "Sharks are saltwater, alligators are freshwater."

Client: "We still want a tank with sharks and alligators"

*Turned the TV off*

you should have watched. They made a huge, low tank that was divided diagonally into two tanks so you could see through both sides.
Then they arranged with a local wildlife/alligator sanctuary to loan them small gators, take care of them and swap them out as needed.
Same with the sharks.

Actually one of the more cool set-ups they have done.

That does sound cool, but I can't handle catering to that kind of callous stupidity. "I don't care if these animals have WILDLY different needs, I want to put them together because I have money and need to compensate for lacking a few other things."

I mean, seriously. You don't even have to be a hobbyist or have any fishkeeping experience to understand that you can't just put a saltwater fish with a freshwater reptile. Just basic common knowledge.

Reading now.

I wish I hadn't started this thread, I was just trying to make conversation and talk about some of the interesting things they do on the show (like the interesting tanks and stuff).

Maybe a mod will come along and delete this thread...

Eh, don't worry about it. The intent was good. I think this thread has run its course. Replies will slow down and it will sink into oblivion.
I would really like to see a show similar to "How it Works" where you get to see the behind the scenes at public aquariums, science institutes, and large custom jobs. Discussion of plumbing, filtration, lighting, and stocking. And the science behind it. Of course, it is not mainstream or sensational or controversial and would be too boring to capture an audience. But I'd watch it.

I agree, how it works for tanks would be awesome!! There's plenty of shows on how it works for other things, why not on aquariums?
