    Looks good...

    I see tanked season2 started airing last week. They made a bit more mention of water conditioning etc, but pretty much the same as season one. Had a 18ft tank with two sharks and a stupid freshwater tank built into a fridge.

    Looks good to me....A little dumbed down for the average non-reefer, but still interesting to watch.

    I would rather people went for fake coral than loosing tons of lifestock collected from the wild.....as tasteless as it may seem to some.

    fake coral = fake tank, they may as well get a lava lamp with a plastic nemo in,

    on the other hand, I appreciate their concern for coral and enviromental conservation and rep to them.

    Sometimes nice to be include in tanks with triggers. Some makes are outstanding, still fake, but impressive. In large tanks in some of the Public Aquariums in the States, it is sometimes hard to say if a specimen is living or fake at a distance.
