Tanked opinion.

I'm bored and can't sleep so I'm looking through Hulu. Anyway I'm watching tanked and I'm irritated with most of what they do. If you don't see it let me point my biggest thing out. The aquarium skate park. Who would want to cause that kinda stress on their fish. These guys obviously have knowledge on fish but they use it entirely for profit and and don't care about what happens off camera. That's how I feel. I want to know your opinion on this show and if anyone knows something better that's on tv and not just YouTube let me know. Not only that but when I picture anything salt water I kinda expect almost everything to be alive.. I didn't start this hobby to put fake plants, corals, and other nicknacks in it. Again, My opinion. What does everyone else think of this show?

Not a fan of Tanked.
They caught a lot of heat in the beginning not showing or explaining how they constantly add fish day one supposedly with out any issues...
Clearly they are in it for the love OF MONEY ,not fish IMO...
I would like to see an episode where they went back to tanks a month ,or year later..Maybe it is not possible with many of them....
You tube is not AS bad IMO but it is hard to cut through the salesman on it sometimes IMO..

Lucky you. Basically they build custom aquariums like shark tanks, unusual aquariums like one episode they turned a car into an aquarium. Another they turned a quarter pipe for skateboarding into an aquarium and all the stuff that isn't fish is fake 3D printed junk

Coralbandit I'm going to look into this and customer reviews. Honestly I Just wish there was something worth watching on the aquarium subject. I feel like people watching animal planet would be way more interested watching something educational on animal planet than this reality tv crap

It looks pretty bad unless you're a millionaire. The tanks that have been successful seem to be because hired people take care of them. Most things I've seen were negative.

Regarding the TV show "Tanked". I like the main characters but realize they are business people. The show is very unbalanced tilted towards the SW side of the hobby.
I believe the show needs to hire professional aquascapers, decorate with natural materials and ditch the manufactured cartoon-like, plastic / epoxy inserts.
At the end of every show, the size and weight of the completed tanks are announced, but the total cost of the project is omitted. I'd like to know how much that 400 gal. Acrylic tank, shipped 1000 miles via truck, unloaded by 10 men, lifted by crane and lowered into the courtyard of a palatial mansion owned by a sports star, wheeled inside to the great room, where the tank is plumbed, leveled and stocked with the same usual and predictable array of SW
fish as seen on the last episode cost.
Despite all this, I am a fan of the show and hope that it improves.

Nope, watched it twice, never again. I'd rather watch my own tanks. Or what people post on here. It's interesting to read up on everyone's progress and learn about things you didn't know. helping the ones you can help is a plus too. I don't watch much t.v. unless walking dead, or mountain men are on. Lol!

I forgot that one is not supposed to criticize without offering an alternative solution to the debated situation. Okay, I propose that "Tanked" recruit an all star aquarium team of Aqua gardeners, Hardscapers and accomplished fish nerds from a pool of qualified candidates selected by the major fish forums to pimp out their tanks.
I think the shows ratings would greatly improve. Customer satisfaction would be raised to a new level, and the hobby would become more appealing to the general public.

I especially don't like it when they build tank for exhibits that are only set up for a day or so before being tore down and shipped somewhere else, it can't be good for the fish
