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

These shows bug me. They don't even bother to cycle their tanks, and some of their facts are outdated.

Once on the show they even said how goldfish are the perfect fish for small aquariums, because they give off little waste.

Yeah, it really sets a bad example for people who are considering aquariums.

This is the way I see it.

I'm sure the guys know exactly what they are doing, but for TV's sake this really bugs me. The amount of stocking problems is just reckless for a show that gets so much publicity about this hobby.

Yes, bugs me too. I was told by Dr. Tim (yes the guy Dr. Tim from Dr. Tims' One and Only) that Tanked used lots of his product to get good BB going (it was at MACNA last year when I asked him about his product) I personally haven't needed to use it because I have filters with extra media to use.

What about the skateboard tank? They're torturing the poor fish when they ride their skate boards over it. I respect their tank building skills, but I HATE their fish stocking skills.

The one that bugs me the most is the drumset tank... they went through a ton of trouble to make sure that nobody would actually drum on it, and them stuffed a dozen fancy goldfish into the small, filter less tanks.

You see, tanked is the reason why people go out and cram an Oscar in a 5 gallon tank, they see all these ridiculously stocked tanks and think, oh I can totally do that! Like my dad was asking why I could only put like 14-16 fish in my 55 gallon tang tank. It just really grinds my gears
