| || | "Tanked" and cycling...
So I enjoy the show "Tanked" on Animal Planet. There are some things I don't agree with on the show, but for the most part it's fun to watch and their tank designs are amazing.
Anywho, I have a question... how do they get away without cycling the tanks they build? From what I've seen, it looks like they fill the tanks with tap water from a hose on site. Then right after that they put the fish in. Is it a "hope for the best" kind of situation...is there something I'm missing?
I'm curious if there is a process the show uses that we don't see. I wonder if anyone here even knows. :P Just thought it was interesting and I've been wondering every time I see the show.
