Thank you for the sneak peek, it was awesome. I can't wait for the show.
They've had the car shows, and motorcycle shows and a bunch of others for almost every hobby, even pumpkin chucking. It's finally our turn, it's about time!

Sneak peek was great I also watched the top 5 tanks very cool as well can't wait for it to start and don't bash the show before it starts it might get more informative as it goes along they are just grabbing people's attention right now and if people want to just grab fish salt and water and think they will have a successful tank that's there problem

I doubt they are even thinking that people will be that stupid, But I agree they can be.
The producers of the show are most likely thinking that Tanked will only appeal to those of us already in the hobby. Not people that don't know anything.
The problem is that people that have been interested for years but have never done anything about it will watch the show to learn how it's done. And that's not what the show is about. It's not a how to show, at all. It appears to be more about the end product, not the process involved.

If you'll enjoy the show or not, depends on why your watching it.
If your watching Tanked to see all the different, unusual & beautiful tanks, you'll find it entertaining.
If your watching it as a "how to" show, you'll probably be disappointed and not learn very much.

It's like expecting that Orange County Motorcycle Show, to teach you how to RIDE the motorcycles they build.

Besides, considering what a long tediuos process cycling a tank is and that as hobbiests we can barely stand it ourselves how long it takes finish. Can you imagine how boring and tedious a show about cycling would be.
We'd all be sound asleep after the first 10 minutes.

AWESOME!
I'll definitely be tuning in.


We need more fish shows. I love when they do the specials on National Geographic, Discovery or Science channel. I think the best was the one on the Cichlids from the African Rift lakes. Forget the exact name, it was on Science channel about 6 months ago. Looked amazing on an HD TV and gave me a whole lot more respect for the Cichlids.

You mean the BROOM handle "Shark Sticks"?

For those of you that were worried about the show not mentioning things like cycling or other proper fish keeping procedures, you'll be happy to hear that the second tanked show will be in part, about building a QT.
I have to admit that I was pleasantly surprised to see the OT build on the explanation about the next show. Who knows, they may do a small part of the show on the proper cycling of a tank.
