They are fun to watch, but I agree... more focus on the tanks and the build and less of there dumb humor...

I just watched a season 2 episode. Still annoyed no changes. 2 lion fish with clowns, carpet anemone in a new bus tank. A spotlight parrotfish that can gets up to 2/3ft long went into one of the tanks.

That place was a big disappointment the last time I was in Vegas. Food was not good.

thats weird. so if the temp gets to 120 degrees, what kind of chiller do you need to bring the temp down 40 degrees on a roughly 200g tank ?

I recently was in Vegas and stopped by ATM. I have to say their retail store front is pretty nice. The water was crystal clear and their reef tanks were pretty impressive. I met Brett and Wayde who took pictures and answered questions. There is always haters out there who have something negative to say. They are in business to make money and obviously they know what they are doing.

I really enjoyed the show last sat where they built a shark tank aquarium for Tracy Morgan. He's funny to begin with but the show seemed better than I have seen before. they actually do talk about preparing the water, using live sand etc. so they seem to addressing the reef/fish geek people like us as well as the general audience.

Yeah the shark tank was pretty cool. It was even cooler that Tracy Morgan already had a reef tank and a jelly fish tank as well.
