I love the show.
All I'll say is that they're putting two tank build jobs in one 43 minute episode. They can't show everything. I do realize that they obviously don't take the time it takes to cycle the tank, which is unfortunate, because most of them go up in one day. However, a lot of their high paying customers often expect them to make deadlines so they can show off the tank to friends and families or for some event. I'm sure that this show and those customers bring in a lot of money for them. It's unfortunate that we don't really see them trying to educate the customers, however, again, we don't know what all has happened because we only see a fraction of it.
All we can see are a handful of the tanks that ATM works with. I don't think we could necessarily judge them on that. They do have to make a living, and I really do think that they have a sincere love for fish (at least Wayde does anyway). That's just how I feel anyway!
