I want to get readers’ thoughts about a show I saw Monday called Tanked.
It looks at the business side of an aquarium building company as they do their work for clients.
In the episode I saw, an orthodontist wanted a big aquarium in his office.
He ended up with an 18 footer.
The problem is they put sharks and stingrays in it.
Sure the sharks were small and they tank builders said as the sharks got bigger they’d be moved, but I think it’s atrocious to keep sharks in such a tiny spot. And all for the amusement of dental patients.
Hopefully animal welfare groups will get all over this one. There is at least one petition to try to get Animal Planet (the TV network) to stop showing Tanked.
