New aquarium TV show

There is a new TV show coming on National Geographic Wild, premeiring next Saturday at 10pm. Hopefully they will show better husbandry than 'Tanked'.

I've yet to see tanked, but from all the bad press, I'm sure glad someone is coming in to hopefully steer more people in the right direction.

Tanked is awsome and the main critic is they dont cycle but they pre-cycle then add extra bacteria

I looked for fish tank kings and didn't see anything. Tanked is not as bad as people say. I can only hope that a business of that size knows what they are doing. Other wise the company would.....

I live in Las Vegas, and although I haven't had a chance to meet the guys of tanked. They do have an aquarium at our local fish store. Blue Reef Aquatics here purchased the telephone booth tank as the owners no longer wanted it. probably the coolest tank I've seen in a while. I think they do a great job, and i appreciate the show. Really look forward to any other show in this field!

Here's a couple of links teasing the show:
Here's a link to the trailer for the show

And here's a clip for you where the baseball
stadium tank is put to the "throw" test


Courtesy of Mr. Saltwater Tank TV.

I also found a video where it showed them moving about a 4' nurse shark for rehoming. At first blush, it seems to have a lot of the elements of Tanked but the nurse shark video I found gives me hope it's a little more educational and less wow factor.

Sorry about that. I cut and pasted the links from my work email, so I guess it's trying to funnel you through that.

Try these instead:

Make sure you're looking on Nat Geo Wild, it's not on the Nat Geo channel. I wasn't very impressed. All the hype and the previews indicated it was geared more towards hobbyists, and hopefully it will be in future episodes, but last night just seemed like a drama filled version of Tanked.... with little to no material that really had me interested.

I like tanked better. All the guys on this show seemed so angry and mean. Funny thing is, wasn't ATM (Tanked) building a tank for the Marlins and the team decided they didn't want the tank for the stadium? And now Fish Tank Kings makes a tank for the stadium. Sounds to me like Tank lost a sale to Fish Tank Kings

Edit- nevermind. tanked made a aquarium truck for a minor league team, not the marlins.
