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
