I have to say it was a lot of fun, being able to help out such a deserving family, wow, so many people in that house the last night, must have been 200 people. Just the excitment and atmosphere was incredible. Cudos to Eric at Shark's Reef, he put everything together and I'm just thankful that I was a part of it.

That's awesome, guys! Congrats on all the hard work and having that tank done in one night.

My girlfriend and I never miss an episode of that show, and I saw the fish tank...got excited, cause it's the first tank they've ever put in a house...and then they didnt even show it.

What size was the tank? Just from looking at it, briefly, on the show I estimated it to be a 75gal. but my girlfriend told me I was full of sh!t and couldnt guess just by seeing it. lol

Too bad they only had an hour to cover everything. They could have spent at least another hour just looking at the details inside. (The tank alone was worth at least 15 minutes of national television time!).

Great job!

I think that they have a new show out called "how did they do that" which goes into more detail. It was the night after the original episode aired. I wish I would have remembered to watch that because I'm sure that they would have mentioned the tank some more.

Congrats to Eric. Job well done.

Stan,

I don't know about you, but I think that Tivo is the best invention since electricity.

Nope no mention of the tank at all, only that 2 second flash you saw in the original show.

They have started putting tanks in most of the houses. The ones in LA have been listed as being sponsored by Tetra and that's all the info you can get.

I love watching this show. I was dissapointed that the people that put the Aquarium together did not get a little bit more recognition. I was proud to tell my wife that is people from the Seattle area that helped build that aquarium out the goodness of thier heart and not the love of money. I love watching that show but it turns me into a crying baby...I had to go out and cut wood or something to feel more masculine..lmao
hell of a good Job, Eric, Larry, I am scrolling back to name of Guy that built stand and canopy, Very Nice Stand and Canopy. You guys are so Cool. I would love to buy you guys a drink.

EMHO has got to be the greatest show on TV not just because of the needy families that they help but becasue what they do in a week's time is completely amazing. I wish real contractors would do that and build a house in one week. Can you imagine an entire neighbor hood in a matter of months? Ed, I cry too!
