I'm not sure we can say universal.. I don't remember the exact episode but they were trying to stock a tank with large sharks. They went to a past customers house and took a shark that was getting too big for the tank they made him. They swapped him with a new smaller shark. To me that shows they care, somewhat. Maybe the personal tanks get a little extra care than the corporate (disposable mindset) customers?

+1 Greg

I really don't care about the prep work they do. What i care about is if their tanks maintain a good environment for the livestock? Unfortunately the clear answer here is no. It's situations and people like this that put our hobby at risk....

I think that was Fish Tank Kings.
If there are reports of successful ATM installs (other than the church system which has a professional staff) lets hear them.

It was an ATM tank, I just can't remember who got the re-homed sharks...maybe it was the Orthodontist build?

Mr Saltwater Tank had a recent interview with the guys from FTK and they kinda allude to the fact that they have to chop a lot of footage to get the storyline into one show. I'm sure ATM does as well, but at least FTK seems to not have the terrible compatibility issues and they talk about doing things correctly. They also kinda take a passive aggressive shot at ATM by saying some of their builds take months and they are not out to do quick builds/installs. Of course they do not mention ATM, but you know who they are talking about.

They have that biologist Francis as well. They don't seem to listen to him much, but he does know his business.

I've never seen fish tank kings so I'm fairly certain it was an early episode of atm. I believe it was in a doctor or dentists office. It was a huge 14' oval shark tank that essentially made a wall.

Your absolutely correct meegosh. It was late season 1 or early season 2. I can't remember exactly but I think it's early season 2. I recently saw that episode(we are currently on season 2), we are a few seasons behind over here!!. The sharks were swapped from a private customer to a dentists office.....

Fish Tank Kings did something similar with a nurse shark that grew up in a Pet store.

Did anyone actually think to contact ATM to get their side of the story? I've emailed them a couple of times and had very prompt responses to both of my questions. It's pretty easy to sit back and critique someone while playing the proverbial armchair quarterback, it's something entirely different when your actually playing the game!
