I am old school. I have never found a "instant" saltwater biological additive that worked any better than seeding a few pieces of live rock and waiting a bit. The live sand I saw them adding looked to be in dry bags and would seem to have little biology going on there. Again, I like their traditional tanks, but their theme tanks are as worthless as the choppers they build on American Chopper. A giant bubble gum machine fish tank in the Vegas outdoors is asking for trouble. And some of them look impossible to clean.

I've been watching a few episodes in HD ever since I got this giant new TV. It's grown on me compared to how I felt earlier.

When you step back and realize it's scripted reality, then it's OK. I disliked the show at first, but gave it a shot for watching just the aquarium stuff. The made up drama between the people sucks though. I ignore that stuff.

I'm looking forward to the new episode on Sat the 15th, with Neal Patrick Harris and his Houdini tank. Ought to be worth watching.

Are you kidding me!? Anything with NPH is worth watching!

I agree- the constant joking and "put downs" between the cast is annoying. But I can ignore that enough to see the amazing tanks they build! I wish they'd have CUC's. That would be fun to see.

Yup, the previews looked very nice.

Hopefully not as campy and fake as the Tracy Morgan episode. I think I'd be able to be around Tracy Morgan for ten minutes before asking him to turn it down a few dozen notches.

That's what got me into it as a kid, hospital visits. They had a big fresh water tank. Hope all goes well.

I have to admit the guys are pretty hilarious but they do not practice good fish keeping habits.. I mean who is stupid enough to put a fish tank in a window

She has probably broken her forearm... They've ordered X-rays. They need a fish mural painted on the wall in this exam room.

Would be nice until someone with Ichthyophobia was admitted.
