The series starts Aug. 19Th at 6:00pm PDT with "Swimming with the sharks".
The second show, also Aug. 19Th , but at 7:00pm PDT is "Brett Takes a Dive".
The third show is Aug. 26Th at 6:00pm PDT, called "Rules of Engagement".
The rest is to get us all interested, which it seems to have done pretty well.

Different cable providers have slightly different schedules I have learned. I have Direct TV and it wasn't on, but my bf has Charter and they played am episode. It confuses me, but I did see an episode. I am sure it was some sort of intro thing, but I still liked it. They talked about quarantine tanks!

That figures , so much for helping each other find the show. You'd think that if they had the Animal Planet channel, they'd have the same shows.
There are so many different cable providers, there's no way to give anyone any concrete information. That kind of bites!!! IMO

Well at least the Animal Channel part should be the same, along with the name of the show. I HOPE

Yeah, i am pretty perplexed by this. If I had not seen it for myself, I might not even believe me!

I'll do some research online about the show, see what I can find out. Then I'll get back to you all with anything I can find out.
Please give ma a day or two.

OK All, I found the Animal Planet/Tanked website. It has all kinds of things, like:
TV Shows, TV Schedules, Pets 101, Wild Animals, Games, Video, Roar, Newsletters, Shop.
It says when and where the show is on. and there is a place to do a search for more answers, if you need them.


http://www.animal.discovery.com/tv/tanked/


I hope this helps, it had more info. in one place than any other site I looked at.

I just seen one of the episodes last friday, the 12th. on Animal Planet HD. For reference I have Comcast Cable.

Honestly. I wasn't that impressed. It seems like Orange County Choppers with aquariums. Seemed to focus more on the "oooh" aspect of aquariums and the drama between the employees at the company. Just another reality show, with a different twist. I hope it gets better. Also, they really only focused on SW tanks. The tanks that usually grab peoples attention.

The tanks they did show were purchased by people with tons of money who only wanted a show piece. Heck, the one couple spent over $30,000 for a dumb quarantine setup. The kicker is...they didn't even pick out their fish. They had the hosts of the show go get them.

What person who spends that much, and loves their fish that much doesn't pick out the fish? Ahhh.

The other customers were the couple who own 720 motorsports. They got a tank put inside of a car. Cool but pointless. Even then, they put the fish right in. No cycling, nothing. I'm not a SW guy but don't you need to add something to cycle it? They filled it with a hose, then plopped them in. Maybe they cut some stuff out for time, but that doesn't reflect well on them by not showing the proper procedure.



NOTE: The show focuses on ATM (Acrylic Tank Manufacturing) out of Las Vegas, NV. That should give you an idea of where the show is headed. Basically outrageous tanks for people with outrageous amounts of money and zero interest in fish.

Here's the website.

That looked so cool...I thought it said Friday at 9:00 though..was gonna DVR that..
I believe that one was actually in a church. If you check out ATM's website, they have some shots of it. Not sure how I feel about that. . .
