Does anyone watch Tanked?

I haven't watched very many episodes thus far but I like the show.

I would be careful with one of these threads. They are quite controversial across the aquarium community, it's best not to bring it up. Varying opinions everywhere.

No it's not your fault, it mostly they're "cycling" aspect not the tanks themselves. Just don't want you to get in trouble with something like this.

And the tanks where there are insane over stockings- the tattoo tank with a mandarin and a ton of other fish? Fifty gallons but mostly full of sand and rocks

Yeah. I wish they'd go over cycling and testing and water changes in each episode for at least a few minutes.

I didn't mean to open a can of worms.

And yes, it does seem like they tend to over stock sometimes . I've seen maybe 5 episodes total so I don't know the show that well.

Thanks. Too bad you can't delete a topic you started.

+1 !!!!! As I recall the last one was fair for a bit but then got sort of "heated" after a bit.

I would make the request now, Mods, please remove before this goes bad.

wow, why you guys afraid of differing opinions???

that's how fascism gets started, fear of opposing ideas.


anywho, assuming that what you see on screen is the whole picture is wrong. They set-up the tanks for the video shoot, then take the fish out and then go through the cycling process. In the previous thread someone even posted pics of a tank they did on a show with signs on it explaining why the tank was empty and the basics of the cycling process.

I very seriously doubt they have built up the business they have on bad advice and poor set-ups.
concerning the stocking complaints, also remember that many of the tanks they do are also being maintained and serviced by either them or another service, so the tanks are from a "set and forget it" endeavor for them.

Now would you guys honestly watch a show where every episode they spent 10-20 minutes going over the whole cycling and proper care malarkey????

Seriously, it's an entertainment show, not an educational show and to think that what you see on the final show is the complete story is just plain naive'.

I think the tanks are hideous personally, they went into the long islands mediums house and took a huge dump in the living room, that new pond show is pretty sweet though, "pond stars" heheh get it?!! Its like pawn stars but instead of pawn.. it's pond!!! What will they think if next??!?!
