Tanked. Love it, or hate it.

I like the show because I love to see how beautiful the tanks end up being and how beautiful the fish are. But I dont like how they stock some tanks and I hate the fake corals. It is only there for looks. I wish they did some more all natural tanks. Like the fung shua tank they did. I loved it.

I know this is going to become a heated topic so lets keep it mellow. No aggressive tones or harsh words, only facts and opinions that are put fairly.

Well i like the tanks and the set-ups but if i had tanked do a project for me i would be stocking it. If they tried to stock i would probably flip out. So my conclusion is i love the tanks and hate how stupidly they stock the tanks.

Well said, Oscar and I completely agree. I used to really like it and they do create some slick looking aquariums, but they just dump a whole bunch of fish in there with no cycling. Can't get over that part.

Yep! They dump a bunch of chemicals in and expect it to be cycled!

That stuff doesn't cycle a tank, regardless of what brand it is. Time and patience cycles a tank.

I love the tanks. Love the guys. They're great at being TV entertainers.

But hate how the fish are treated.

I think we can all agree on that.
