Anyways when I was growing up Animal planet had educational shows that educated the viewers on animals and their habitats and provided factual information. The station also showed things about endangered species and things you could do to help. Now they can show a person 10 fish in a 8 gallon tank and that's helping animals ? That's hurting animals because some 10 year old kid will see it and run spend his allowance on a tank and stuff a ton of fish in it.


That's all I'm really saying .
Lots of people will not do research, I don't disagree. However is that really the show's fault, or the person's?

I feel like we are going in circles here.....I agree that they probably should set a better example. But I will repeat myself in saying that it is not the show's fault if you don't do your research.

But as stated before, should we blame the show for people not doing their homework? They don't set the greatest examples, however not doing research is inexcusable.

We are definitely just going in circles now, so after this I will refrain from repeating myself again until I see new evidence presented.

the main point of the show, IMO, is to show that if you can imagine the tank you can create it. but everything else is garbage. when i saw the bubble gum tank they built for Serendipity restaurant outside, even someone like me knew algae is going to be a bi**h.

I get what your saying but its animal planet a show about learning about animals ... They would do a show where they mistreat dogs and act like its okay. That's all I'm saying.

When your in their position with that type of experience under your belt I will take your word as fact until then it's your opinion nothing more! I have been in this hobby breeding fish longer than you've been alive so trust me they don't get where they are not understanding fish.
+++1 I think they're a little smarter about it. Yes they shouldn't do it. But it's entertainment regardless of what channel it's on.

I mean when TLC the learning channel put honey boo boo on channels just threw away all their principals in exchange for $$$$

I know it happened before that but I guess their was no money in educational video . Frankly I like f all the documentaries way more than these over produced reality shows.
