+1 Well said. Anytime you take a living creature out of its habitat and place it in a artificial world, you have become God to that creature. It is totally your responsibility if it lives or dies. I take that seriously.

Just watched the new one where the spoiled teenagers insist on a shark/crocodile tank. Followed by a RV tank. I cannot believe their inability to say no.

Just saw that one too. The tanks they're making are getting worse. That gator/ shark tank was horrible. Split in half and ugly....

How can it even work? Gators at 85F and sharks at 75F. All because a couple of teenagers want a "mean tank." Another algae magnet.

Just watched the episode last night!

They said that the cow fish will release poison into the tanks. And ya the can't cycle an aquarium when it has to be put up and installed across the country. I'm sure the builds that aren't televised they have local aquarium companies do it but for the sake of TV they set it up so they can see the finished product .

I agree, they want to unveil a finished product. But if they were responsible, those fish would come back out after the director yelled "cut" and placed into holding tanks until the display tank stabilized.

Correct and they are always talking about fish safety.

All I have to say is that none of us really know what goes on behind the scenes.

exactly. for all you know the filtration systems might be matured in the warehouse and keep the bacteria alive during transport. Fish tank kings is the same as tanked. i always wonderd why they never got cycled and assumed it was done behind the scenes. im sure they know a quick way to keep maturing filters
