About the Fish Tank Kings

Nat Geo WILD’s reality TV series Fish Tank Kings follows Living Color Aquariums in our daily manufacturing operations, bringing the home viewing audience into what it takes to pull off the most extreme and elaborate aquariums in the world. Our team of designers, craftsmen, project managers and installers are in the spotlight as viewers experience the unparalleled skills, creativity, and teamwork it takes to create these amazing living works of art.

In addition, Fish Tank Kings is an amazing chance to truly go behind the scenes and witness the raw drama and never-ending pressure of building these massive underwater creations.  From selecting the fishes to choosing the reefs and corals, clients will change their minds at every turn, things won’t ever go on as smoothly as even our best laid out plan and our cast of thousands of fish can always be counted on to NOT behave appropriately.

Prior season’s viewers witnessed us:

  • Upgrade an aquarium to end up being three to four times its original size, making it the largest residential tank in South Florida.
  • Build a unique aquarium behind the home plate of a Major League Baseball field. Only one of its kind in the actual “field-of-play”.
  • Transform a vintage Volkswagen Minibus into a one of a kind custom aquarium.
  • Renovate a 15-year old aquarium at Rainforest Café, while keeping the restaurant open.
  • And much more… check out the past episodes available online

We continue to push the envelope this season with more extreme builds, more elaborate designs, more drama, and of course…. more fish!
