I agree the show is too dramatic, trying to make a pink lake scary. I dont think thats the angle you have to take to make it interesting. I think its interesting enough on its own. Present the facts like its the most amazing and wondrous thing rather than scare people about it

Andrew Felices
'Andrew Felices' 2 months ago
the cause for this bright pink color is the tiny microbes or archaebacterias that live on the lake causing to have a pink color. The reason that there are archaebacterias live there is the presence of salt... not only that it is very SALTY!
Sgt BreakPrism
'Sgt BreakPrism' 2 months ago
There are pink lakes all over the world including one in Melbourne, Australia where the nearby cherry blossom trees dye the lake pink during spring. If it’s that simple to change the colour of a lake. what makes you think that it’s toxic or has unknown, mysterious fish?
