    I agree that hate mongering of any kind, especially towards a hobby that there are many people whom take the conservation side of very seriously, is something that should not be left to pass. Ignorance and fear can quickly destroy a good thing when allowed to propagate as the mob mentality that can occur demands change and then we end up with people who know nothing making rules or regulations over things they know even less than nothing about.

    Poor choice of topics to take to an extreme imo I was happy to see several times the amount of dislikes on the video than there were likes.

    Yeah and wtf with the discus? They don't live off Hawaiian reefs..... Not even close.

    Yeah, I watched the newer trailer that came out just a few days or a week ago or something like that. They redid the trailer after receiving so much backlash over the fact that they were using discus when talking about marine.

    It's a horribly misinformed show that has no merit being put out for the public to see, but there's not really much to do about it. We are in the age of Youtube and the internet, where anyone with a camera can make videos and claim to be experts. Hence the absurd emergence of things like Flat-Earthers and those who believe dinosaurs did not exist.

    True, I don't YouTube much but is there any way to comment or link videos that actually portray what the hobby is about when his garbage comes out? Not that I would personally but if there's an ability I'm fairly sure at least, that those with the knowledge would do so to hopefully put valid information into the mix also.

    Join Youtube if you don't have an account already, it's free

    Then you can post a comment on every video there...just know there's alot of BS talk and anyone can comment, and as far as I know, they don't ban anyone unless it's extreme circumstance

    Kinda like what I imagine Flakebook can be, from what I've heard

    Mat hit the nail on the head.

    Also I plan on Retort video, along with many reef keepers who have 10-50k subscribers going against this channel.


    So if any one's wants to do anything let me know. I want to do a video live stream and talk about this more in depth. Not just for the sw but the fw.

    And how we are here for fish health not demise
