Oh god... A drum set??? Did someone forget why public aquariums have signs that say "Don't tap on the glass"?

There were 3 five gallon tanks again with goldfish. I believe they said" because these are only freshwater tanks with goldfish, we won't need filters"

that's what they said. All they put was bubblers in them. And they're goldfish.

The show is mostly scripted, although I definitely agree they're misinforming people. But keep in mind, it's meant for entertainment. Besides, if the tanks they make are so bad, why are they so successful? Not to mention, that skateboard ramp tank I think was a one time use. I could be wrong, but they also seem to know what they're doing.

Just wanted to vent my frustration with that show.
I was watching that to with my boyfriend, my first thought was like on they will put a betta in it. Then I heard them say 12 goldfish and my jaw dropped ><. They do this a lot. They overstock their tanks and I really think or hope that it is just for the show. In which case it makes it worse because people who don't know better, watch the show and take advice from what they saw. But hopefully for the health of the fish, they do remove them after they are done filming. To be honest, I think Tracy Morgan is pretty knowledgeable about his fish and hopefully if they don't take them out, he will. He is passionate about his fish.

I have to admit though, I had aquariums almost my whole childhood and I stopped doing them in my teenage years. My grandfather use to have close to 6 planted tanks and he did everything the old fashion way. After he passed, I stop doing it. Watching that show really brought my passion back and made me realize just how much I missed my fish. Thanks to this forum also, I have taken another step into the area of planted tanks which is something I never did prior to coming here for information. So I am thankful to both.
