One of those you look back on and wonder what the heck you were thinking lol. It is really informational though minus the cheesy sound effects and terrible acting.

Idk. I watched the interview link posted and i dont really know if i buy into him. Sure its great that the show is bringing people into the hobby, but its also setting them off on the completely wrong foot and giving an entirely false sense of right and wrong. I guess my issue (again) lies with animal planet and not with brett or his brother or even the company.

Ultimately, in my opinion, anyone who wants to be successful and is serious about it becoming a hobby will come to great forums like this and do their own research. Other than that, there is nothing we can really do other than encourage those that we know to educate themselves. We all have to start somewhere, hopefully its on places like these forums.

Just to give some info, I live in the same city as ATM and not too long ago the skate board shop sold the tank, they said it was only used once and that was for the show. It was not actually used as a ramp, just for show.

The tank had one of those electronic drum pads on top so they weren't banging directly on the tanks but still, thte has to be some vibration going through the tank not to mention the overstocking issues. But sadly you can get the same bad advice from lfs and box stores like petsmart. That's why I am thankful for forums like this. I feel like I am getting good info and when I actually do buy my fish I will be ready.

I just re watched that episode and they said goldfish dont need filters because they have adapted to live in small bodies of water.

I have always heard that a fish in too small a tank has its organs outgrow its body therefore causing lots of problems

When a large fish is inside a small tank it stunts their growth and does cause alot of problems (disease, parasites, stress,death)
