Tanked

Just watched an episode of Tanked. Those IDIOTS put 12 redcap goldfish in a 5 gallon tank. I am happy to have found this forum because I would have thought that was cool a few months ago but have gained more knowledge on the aquarium hobby thanks to people on here. Sorry..... Just wanted to vent my frustration with that show.

I know what you mean... Like the time they gave that kid a 5g TV tank and had 4 bala sharks, a couple red tail sharks, rainbow sharks, and guppys... But every time i watch that show i always wonder how sad it is that these 2 guys dont even know what the minimum size is for a GOLDFISH! Well most people dont too but making your own show and tanks should teach you a little about thr hobby right? Good show though, just not good stock.

Yeah the tanks are cool and they probably get new people into the hobby but they need to check their facts on stocking

the thing to understand with ATM is that they 1) are not a fan-based hobby and 2) they work with a clientele that tells them what they want, where they want it, and how they want it.... saying no to those types of clients means you are going to be out of business within a year or so. that being said i dont really blame them for building a successful business and supporting several families. i blame the tv channel that cooked up this stupid tv idea and has them nailed down to some stupid horrible scripting and fake acting. the show would be 10x better and perhaps they could actually pass along some good husbandry skills if they werent following that insane dialog

True. It is all about ratings and selling a product.

Pretty sure they unstock the tanks after filming. They seem to really care about fish.
