I believe it is called our opinion and we are all entitled to that, bring the hobby main stream is one thing, bring it mainstream by making it look like setting up a gold fish bowl is something else, but thats my opinion

What distinguishes fact from opinion is that facts are verifiable, i.e. can be objectively proven to have occurred.

Exactly, there are no facts from the show, it is a easy as a gold fish presentation, IMHO they portray the reef industry as easy as a gold fish bowl, and that does much more harm than good, God only knows how many sea creatures have parishes because of that show, people see it, go to their lfs and buy everything and in 24 hours they have a full reef. I really do not care if they are a multi million dollar organization, they are rich because they don't care, Im not rich but I do care, I guess that is where we part company.

Know a guy who visited there facility and showed me pics of most of their tanks they did that they repossessed. Also, they told him animal planet pays for most of the tanks they do so what does that say.

Re-possessing a tank?! That sounds like an awful mess!

From what I have heard, from people that have actually been out to see some of these builds, is that there is significant die-off after they stock the tanks. There are pictures out there that show this. I can't imagine any expert would say to completely stock your tank all at once.
