The new "tanked" tv show

Ok admit it, you have it on dvr at home like me! Ha ha. I am wondering how these guys set up these massive tanks, and five minutes later are dropping expensive fish in them?????

I watched last night, and was not impressed. Tangs in a phone booth with no room to swim, TV's in an aquarium... kinda defeats the purpose. But most importantly, like you - I am clueless, other than camera magic how they are doing this without nuking $1000's worth of fish.

Not to mention, people watching are guaranteed to think thats what you do, and there will be a massive die-off of fish because people are adding fish and salt to the tank at the same time!

Ya I was thinking I needed to get if those magic devices that instantly turns tap water to cycled aquarium water. I agree with the phone booth. BUT I thought the car one was pretty sweet. The mob one- negative. I personally don't like fake props in a saltwater tank

Come on now,I'm sure there are some cement shoes with real bones sticking out of them in a few places in the ocean off NY and Jersey.LOL

I did assume they would have their own tanker type truck with pre-mixed saltwater to fill the tanks though.
