I've read about this show, but never seen it listed here in Canada. Boo! :(

EDIT: And I now see why. I don't subscribe to Animal Planet. Double boo!

The tanks seem to be crammed with fish. I'm sure they have top of the line technology but, it just seems like they always put way too many fish in their tanks.

Just watched Season 1; Ep. 1.

What the hell? They don't cycle their tanks? And filling marine tanks with tap water and throwing the fish in? AFAIK, marine takes a while to set up, not just an hour or two.

Also, that whole "mermaid show" at the hotel aquarium. My first thought was how they're contaminating the tank with shampoo, soap and detergent residues. :-?

yeah I don't know anything about salt water but I thought that was a little strange the way the just go form filling up the tank to dumping in fish

After work, I think I'll check to see if there is a way to contact them and ask questions.

I just sent an email to Wayde King, the CEO, asking how they deal with the issues we've brought up here. Who knows...we might get a reply. Stranger things have happened.
