    Personally, my favourite part of this weeks show was the part when he attacked a large healthy coral with a hammer before transferring it to a new tank. To prolong it's life.

    Screw this live coral black magic mumbo jumbo! I'm going with epoxy moulded ones... not.

    I think it was 2 weeks back they reviseted a old tank and everything was dead (althow the coral was alredy dead) and they blamed it on the customer for not taking care of the tank. Hahaha.
    Ignorance is bliss

    Watched ten minutes of it last night and then I switched off. @dallasg, the dork is actually called the "fish geek" hahahahahaha!
    My brother in law called me, he has never kept fish and he said that they were ridiculous.

    Yeah, that guy is fun to watch... He chose a $2000 fish for the recording studio that doesn't even know how to keep clown fish alive... Great idea!

    I wont even trust him as a pet store assistant, nevermind where he is working now...

    Probable cyanide... Its what they use to semi-paralyze the poor fish to make them an easy catch!

    Lol what a joke,they hyped it up so much with a million ads per day and then when it finally aired I was like ***?!

    My local LFS does way better tanks and marine tanks then them so how this bunch got onto tv is beyond me!

    Hollywood at its worst and yet the USA is filled with proper reef keeping experts.

    My guess is, proper reefers are too busy doing proper reefing instead of putting on makeup for the camera.
