You're right, but it still bugs me, and it probably won't stop. But yes, you're right.

Being from Vegas and seeing some these tanks first hand, many have failed and been removed.

I don't watch tv anymore because when I do I constantly think of how its a bunch of bull. It's funny because I have a really nice tv on one end of my living room and then my reef tank in progress on the other end. While everyone is sitting one way watching tv I'm sitting the other watching my tank lol. TV is mindless entertainment and a huge waste of time in my eyes and I don't take any show seriously if I happen to watch one.

People don't exactly watch that show for aquarium advice though. It is designed purely for entertainment. I feel like Fish Tank Kings shows more consideration for that animals than Tanked does. Tanked is all about the crazy unnatural themes of the tanks me what they can put inside of them to make the tanks look better. I'm sure animal welfare is certainly considered off screen though.

Sea World actually has some systems in their education classrooms behind the scenes that ATM made. Not all of their tanks are insane. Actually I was pretty jealous of these systems tbh

Here's the thing. MARINELAND ' S parent company sells saltwater bio material so that these sorts of tanks are instantly cycled. My friend and her husband work at the plant and he actually works in the lab. I agree the shapes of some of the tanks are ridiculous and not healthy or practical but I don't believe this all occurs in the short time span they claim it does.

Ya. If anything they set it up and stock it in that short time then take the fish back to atm and keep them in holding tanks until the tank is actually ready.

They actually put hats into a tank. I wonder how the fish felt about having a hat in their home.

Does "Tanked" or "Fish tank kings" bug anybody else?

I've been watching Tanked a lot over the past couple of days sense I messed up my foot. Some of these tanks are insane and some just make me wonder how long they would actually run for. Like the drum set?

I really love the lighthouse tank they made in the casino but I seriously doubt they took any of those fish back out to let the tank setup and hold the fish for these clients. A huge reason would be they are based in Las Vegas and these clients are all over the U.S. not to mention how many fish they put into the system. I'd love to actually hear how exactly they get the system running so quickly especially because they always talk about the well-being of the fish.
