There will be more fish tank shows popping up soon. Some probably will be ridiculously dumb. It's just like the towing and storage shows.

Some of the tanks they build are really nice. I would love the have that feng shui tank!

But half of them I dont agree with. The Fridge tank, the bubblegum tank, I thought the sick little boys tank was really special.

But heres my question, some of these tanks are so far out there. I always wonder... how do they feed the fish! or clean them

I watch it to see some of the fish when they go shopping for them. That store would be like heaven heheh


but no one has said the real reason to watch that show.. Agnes is hooooooooot lol =P

Unfortunately, a real show about building reefs would bore most people to death. We would all love it, but then we are addicts. Producers have to drive the caricatures on these shows to get a broad audience. A theme fish tank is like a theme motorcycle on American Choppers. It is a statement first, a motorcycle last usually.

But they do seem to be masters of acrylic. I would be tickled speechless to have them build me one of their bow ended 1000 gallon beauties.

Oh yes, they can build/plumb the tanks, I will give them that.

It does seem to be getting worse with the popularity of the show growing.... We should start calling them and demand they only stock tanks accordingly or atleast close lol .. heck the sharks would need a tank ATLEAST 1000% bigger : /

The theme tanks get old quick to someone who sees a tank and it's system as nothing more than a life support system for the creatures you want to make a home for. If I could make the tank and system invisible, I would. The little tv tank was something pretty dime store. The kid would have been better served by a real tank and some fish that were chosen properly. If all the kid is interested in is sharks and other predators, he needs some experience and a lot more tank. Watching his fish die is a sure bet he might never own a tank again.

seems like it kinda ruins the whole aspects of fish keeping, based on what I read. trying to keep fishes alive isnt a hobby is it? its true though, you want your fishes alive and healthy as can be, but there's more to it than just that.

Just the mention of those towing and storage shows gets me all angry. You have to be a few bricks short of an outhouse to believe anything on those is real.
