What are these plants? They are growing like crazy. The guy gave them to me with the tank
Hygrophila polysperma and Hygrophila polysperma “variegated” :)
Below them are crypts of some sort (unsure what plants exactly you’re referring to)
Someone with a red eye, amazon, F8, dwarf and GSPs (they used to have a humpback too) in about a 5gal tank - all together. And just turned it into “saltwater”.Read more
Not a single one of the cast members from tank includes that they are a biologist, marine biologist, or aquarist in their bios which leads me to wonder why they have their own show?
I know animal planet is not the station it used to be. I also know that many in the fishblr community don’t have professional experience either. I’m just astounded they would get a show which consistently proves they have no idea what they are doing beyond building tanks.
It is always important to do research on all pets and animals. Even if you think you know it all, even if you have kept the animal before, do research. Good research. Research with credible sources and scientific data.
Don’t be the cast from tanked. Don’t settle for something because it’s cool looking.
Oh you’ll love this interview then. Brett Raymer pretty much says “we can fuck up because we have ‘so much’ experience and it’s not our job to teach everyone else how to do it.”
i absolutely hate these kind of shows. I have seen an episode where they’ve put about 50 koi in a small pond.
It’s literally not their job. They build tanks. That is their business. They have the contacts and the ability to stock them but their job is building tanks.
If people do not research the fish they ask for that is their own problem.
Ok but if it’s just their job to build tanks, they shouldn’t be stocking them. Period. If they don’t have the knowledge on which fish can and can’t go together, what size tanks the fish require, etc, then they have no business even going near fish. It’s irresponsible for them to stock these tanks without any consideration for the fish they’ve chosen.
If it’s not their job to deal with fish they shouldn’t deal with fish. Hell, have some third party come in and stock the tanks along with I dunno actually cycling them so the fish aren’t in shock and die within a few weeks to a month after the fact
People take them as authority on stocking. Whether they “intend” for this or not. “But Tanked did it!”
It’s their job. If they are showing tanks and trying to introduce people to the hobby, then they need to do it right.
They can go get fucked, IMO.
"If you’re watching TV to learn something, then you’re doing it wrong" ha. Yeah, because of shit shows like yours. You heard it here - Animal Planet is no longer a science channel. I mean, we knew that, but it’s official.
But yeah. Gotten into long debates over this. No matter what, people take them as a source of information. So fuck them for not caring. I don’t think he gives a shit - he’s either incredibly ignorant of his influence, or he’s apathetic about the fish he’s actively allowing to be put in poor conditions.
Hell - they put axolotls with discus. I think that’s a pretty good representation of the show.
If you bot and you get banned, you deserve it. It’s in the rules. If the admin start making exceptions because you have ~carpal tunnel~ and HAVE to bot otherwise how are you going to make your fake virtual currency, then what’s the point of even having rules
I agree, carpal tunnel isn’t even…
look some are ridiculous but
"triggered by snow"
are seizures no longer real things any more? I mean… I’d put that less in the category of “whining” and more in the category of “slightly dangerous”
Foxtrot looks pretty boring. I like the
head nipple deepsea bulb and bird, but the rest has to go. I want some elegance and dazzle. I seem to be pretty terrible at finding good apparel items, though, as it turns out.
And he needs to be gened up. Still deciding whether I want to show his (unfortunate) tert or not. I’d like a cool accent for him too.
Any suggestions, FR?
