Yeah...I have accepted that "Tanked" is merely for entertainment purposes and not to inform people about proper fish care. Honestly, that would be kind of boring. If you keep this in mind, the show becomes instantly more enjoyable. If anything, maybe are hobby will get the benefits that main-stream success brings.

You have to realize though, that everyone here is passionate about fish, therefore we see all of the mistakes and problems that a non-fish keeper wouldn't notice. Just turn your brain off next time you watch. Haha

They should still use RODI water due to the toxins in the water

Just happened to be surfing the channels and since I have an interest in fish, I checked it out. And I loved it. I'll be watching it...neat looking tanks and fishes. I'm not a SW guy but I do find the fishes quite pretty and awesome looking.

I like the show but I like to see the fish they add in and the crazy aquariums but irony like they don't really teach anything to anyone. Or how they add fish so soon and don't cycle and how they used water from a water hose and I don't like how they only use fake coral and stuff IMO it's all ugly the only good part is the fish. And I really think it takes all the excitement out of fish keeping when these people pay them todo everything they don't even pick out their own fish. But overall I like seeing the tanks and fish.

As a freshwater fishkeeper, I think it's messed up that they don't do any freshwater tanks. Even when they used freshwater cichlids, they used fake coral. I'd like to see them try a freshwater tank!

I am positive they cycle they run there media on their established tanks then use it or the fish would be dead And they acclimate them every time but you have to remember a lot of old school guys don't fishless cycle they do a fish in cycle

I do agree with the fake coral kinda tacky

And the educational part is for people like us they are trying to appeal to everyone it is up to the individual to do the research but I agree they should mention the words cycle and research

they did a Freshwater tank last night !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

woo hoo!
it was a "Beer Keg / wine barrel" aquarium with peacock cichlids.


the only problem was the decor/ornaments.
It looked so tacky with the coral decorations in a freshwater aquarium.
If they used driftwood or rocks e.g. limestone rocks, that would have been much better

Yea. I saw that. But it had an artificial reef. Saltwater themed.
