cool tanks but their a bunch of idiots when stocking their tanks. i cant watch that show any more it just makes me mad at them and sad that the fish have to go through what they do. most of those fish are wild caught specimens and they put them into a tank with a bunch of fake coral. its not just their fault the tanks have problems, a lot of those fish are harder to care for and I'm willing to bet half the people on their haven't had experience with any kind of saltwater

If they were like fish tank kings and had a fish expert on hand, they would be better.

Rule number one: Always research a fish before you buy it.

Rule number two: Always cycle your tank.

They have cool ideas, I'm just bigger on tanks that simulate a natural environment. And it seems like people who buy them think fish are easy... "Put water in a tank and be done with it" mentality

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!

Why would I want more people entering? Lol. You need to watch the show live on Friday nights where there will be a code. Then you enter it at animalplanet.com/tankedsweeps there are the official rules and how to enter there too.
