IDK about you guy's but watching and waiting for my own tanks to cycle was excruciating. The idea of watching an entertainment show of someone else's tank cycling sounds masochistic to me.
It's the glitz that get's new people interested in fish, not the hard work. Friends that have started keeping fish after seeing my tanks are surprised at the amount of work it takes in the beginning. Even though I tell them about it before they ever buy anything. If "Tanked" showed all the early drudgery of start up, no one would even try to keep fish and a show about the hard work would never have made it on the air.
Has anyone here visited the "Tanked" website? It's suppose to have a lot of the behind the scenes stuff that gets list on the show. I haven't had the time,so I was just wondering if anyone else had.
I only have FW
tanks, mainly due to cost, but also from fear of what is needed in the start and upkeep of a SW
tank. But I really enjoy seeing all the different types of SW
fish. Most of which are way to large to keep in the average home aquarium.
We just need to remember that when it comes to "Hollywood" and "Television" nothing is as it seems. Even on the channels like AP
