    They have their own bacterial starter (ATM Colony).

    I wonder if they add it in but don't show it on the show?

    I used it on my first tank (cycle didn't complete).

    I saw the episode where they did a tsnk for Red Foo ( ).
    So many things made me cringe.

    As far as bad advise, the ugliest décor I've ever seen, your a 100% right! but they build the best tanks with the cleanest seams I've ever seen, I have a 360 gallon that was made by them, it's 36 inches tall and has a zero amount of bow in the acrylic! But when it come to the show, they really really suck o_O

    I avoid the show. I hate how the tanks look. I see way to many tanks that put the fish in harm. They seem to care more about pretty than the fish them self.

    I have a friend in LV that's in the aquarium wholesale industry, the guy I bought my used 360 from, who got my tank from one of they're happy clients for free as long as he removed it right away! He's also spoken too several LV clients of theirs that said that the mortality rate in the tanks they set up is around 70% to 80% in the first 3 months. Tell me that don't suck :(

    I remember an episode vaguely where they built a tank for a shark that they knew wasn't big enough. There excuse was in a few years it would be re homed.

    I watch this show once in a blue moon. That dog house tank really pissed me off though.

    Overstocked, has Axolotls COLDwater in with Discus tropical fish. It would die in like 3 days in that tank. Then they have a dog hole to chase discus around. WTF!

    Don't get me started on the outdoor koi turtle tank. I had a 3000G pond and my koi got almost 3 feet. He's screwed! LOL

    I am starting to get annoyed by the people who cannot tell the difference between feeder Guppies and Endlers.
