I knew that phone booth aquarium wouldn't last. The bullnose aquarium they show in the opening is more my style. They do both build nice tanks. But that is only part of it. I can build acrylic tanks myself, so all I envy is their big oven for bending sheets. They send the wrong message, that these critters are for decoration only. Somebody mentioned the fact that most of these people never get their hands wet. I guess that is good business for a maintenance company...but I am not impressed. We, on is forum, have great pride in what we can accomplish. Much of that success cannot be bought, in my view. It would be nice if you required some skills before having a big display tank that just kills fish. I just wish they spent more time in how to keep the fish alive. They would be lost trying to do a long term reef tank.
And to clarify my shark comment, not trying to step on toes. IMO
, sharks are for public aquariums that can build round tanks on the order of thousands of gallons. Keeping a shark in what I see on these shows is like keeping a giraffe in your garage. He might fit, but the long term prognosis is not good.
I also enjoy the program and want to visit them next time in Vegas.
