Tanked annoys me because people ask for a tank to be up in 2 weeks. My cycle lasted double that. It's obviously fake but has some entertainment value. The fish kings boss is an A hole but they have a young Asian guy who seems like he's the real science behind everything. Seems like he truly cares about fish and their well being.
Tv just riding the fish tank wave. I just cringe at how many little fish will be killed in the process. ( not to mention the kids/ppl that watch a show and think they can keep a sw tank cuz they watched "educstional reality" tv)
I can personally assure you that when you spend that much on a tank, you care if the thousands of dollars in fish that just went in make it. Most clients, regardless of tank (or wallet) size, care about the fish if not just for the level of investment. The last meeting we took for a large 6 figure home reef was mostly consumed with filtration and building around it so the fish would be healthy, maybe 30 minutes on actual aesthetics and the other two hours plus was just on proper filtration and where and how we get the fish.
If you really want to see ATMs work in person after the fact just visit the SI Ferry Terminal and talk to the employees who were there when it was installed. Stocked to capacity on day 1 followed by days of removing dead fish. The filtration room is just pallet filtration from Aquatic Eco (cheap and easy) and a lot of it is broken.
If the shark went to Fishkill, it's at the home of the new owner of Fishtopia (now called River and Reef). He has a pool inside his garage for sharksI guess you guys heard the news, but if not...
