  1. Default The Show "Tanked"

    Has anyone seen this? It comes on Animal Planet. They make extravagant, usually salt water, mega tanks. I always feel like they're overstocking the tanks like crazy.

    Yeah I've seen that show before. Yes they do seem to go over the top with fish at times. It's a show, they have to make it real interesting.

    Overstocked, no consideration for long term stability of the tank and all the tanks are garish, loud and ugly!

    Not to mention how painfully scripted it is.

    I think there's a missed chance here, there must be companies in the US that do a decent aquarium. And besides, Discovery is pretty much a global brand, why not do something with the ADA company?

    I just cant stand the plastic/rubber coral look... And how proud the dunces are when they make them... Im sorry but I have never seen them make a bubble tipped anenome, or anything really honest to do justice to the coral.

    Additionally I can only assume that the people they do these multithousand dollar tanks for know less about fish than Wade and Brent. So we have someone with a megatank that doesnt know how to take care of it. Furthermore doesnt know if the person they HIRE to take care of it knows what they are doing...

    Sw: 1 55gal, 1 30gal show, 1 29gal show, 1 20gal and 2 10's

    I'd be damned if I were g0ing t0 spend that much 0n a tank with rubber corals! I'd learn t0 take care 0f SW tanks f0r what these numbskulls w0uld clearly be willing t0 pay, L0L. Then I c0uld aff0rd the setup I want t0 build, right N0W.

    That show has too much fluff for my liking and I certain don't like the look of fake coral either. Just not my style I guess.

    I wish the show would not edit out all the details that when into planning and setting up the tanks. They don’t explain/show things like how they used cured live rock to cycle the tank in days, all the equipment used in the set-up, and how they choose/develop a stocking strategy for the fish they put in the tanks.
    With some of the tangs they have put in these tanks, you can either keep one, or a you need to keep a whole bunch. A lot like African cichilds in that way.

    Obviously they do know what they are doing as they have built a multimillion dollar business doing this and even got a show on Animal plant. I just wish they would make the show more educational and focus less on getting ratings.

    But then again, I have only watched three episodes

    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    Some of the tanks they make are pretty awesome. How about the young boy recovering from cancer treatment and they made a tank and made the surrounding area look like a ship. Would have to agree, those who spent thousands on the tank and live stock probably know crap about anything related and just wanted it for show and probably have hired someone to take care of it. I've thought about offering my services as a side job.
