I like to show the Red Head is hot but I don't understand that they don't tell the people who take care of the tanks that is going to take a lot of work oh ya there rich. People come and do it . They just had the last show had a discus tank it looks sweet I'm a little jealous I got nine of them

I like Fish Tank Kings better. They have more natural looking tanks.

I visited freeds bakery to see the cake tank 2 days after the episode came out. The tank was gone so I asked an employee what happened. She said that they ordered the tank just for wedding cake season and got rid of it two months ago. I knew for the most part on the show they act to make it interesting but apparently the camera crew was at the bakery for 3 days retaking and editing. The most lame part was they said the hated the aquarium as it was annoying and too much work so they threw the tank in the recycling and wouldn't even tell me what they did with the poor fish.
It just makes me mad

I'm pretty sure they just released the fish in a near by beach because they don't appreciate the beauty of fish.

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!
Ive done some research, and believe it or not. Tbey do cycle their tanks. But only for days. They make it look like they do it emidiatly.

In my opinion, Fish Tank Kings is too serious...all the bickering amongst the cast while Tanked is more entertaining.

I have to disagree...both guys at Tanked know their fishes.
