We were very excited to learn that mainstream TV is interested in the aquarium world enough to produce an aquarium reality TV series called Tanked, and the first preview doesn’t disappoint. If you’re a fan of all the building shows on the Discovery, History and TLC channels, the new Tanked series seems to follow a similar serious yet fun direction. The guys from Acrylic Tank Manufacturers (ATM) seem to have great time building some unforgettable aquarium projects and in addition to being entertained, viewers who have never seen the fabrication of large acrylic aquariums will be as eye-opening as it is informative.
Animal Planet’s Tanked seems to be equal parts Orange County Choppers, Pawn Stars and maybe a little Mythbusters. We’ll have to see how the six episodes of Tanked play out but you be sure we’ll be watching closely to see how the guys from ATM represent the aquarium scene on national television. The first preview of the Tanked TV show premiers August 19th on Animal Planet.
