Their acrylic work looks like it is hard to fault. Acrylic is really fun to work with, but it sure is heavy. But I would love to have one of their 800 gallon bow ended tanks. My guess it costs about the same as a Porsche.

Yeah agreed. It's torture watching those idiots lol
I also think that every tank I've ever seen them do is way way WAY overstocked!!

I watch only for the beauty of what they have created and grumble to myself about the stocking choices.

My hubby can tell when they've done a bad job stocking, I sit on the couch and mumble not so nice words.

But, they do have some awesome set-ups.

Honestly I like the show because they have started explaining care for the fish and the importance of cycling.

It seems their idea of cycling is to add some bottles of bio-product, throw the fish in and walk away. That is the part of the show I dislike.

I think they've listened to aquarists and how they aren't showing much of the Fish care. I think this because I've noticed, in their newer episodes, they have begun to talk about the importance of cycling and the needs of each fish.

I treat my fish like I do all my animals including the dogs. It is my sole responsibility to provide a good home to any creature I take guardianship of. These creatures should not be considered disposable. For example, I know people who kill one mandarin goby after the other. They mean no more to them than a fly does.
