Watch Tanked

Tanked is a reality TV series that features brothers-in-law Brett Raymer and Wayde King, the owners of Las Vegas business Acrylic Tank Manufacturing. Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (better known as ATM) is one of the largest manufacturers and installers of customized aquariums in the world.

During the first part of the show, Brett and Wayde meet with the client to discuss what type of tank they would like. By just listening to the client's needs both Brett and Wayde will design the tank, pick out the fish and install the tank without anymore input from the client.

Once back at the shop the ATM team headed by shop manger Robbie Redneck Christieb start to construct the tank. Not only does the viewer get to see how the tanks are designed and molded but quite often the tanks include working pinball machines, old vehicles and kitchen appliances just to name a few.

The personality of the crew is also highlighted by the pranks that they pull on each other throughout the shop. This family run business also includes Wayde's wife (Brett's sister) and the general Irwin Raymer (Brett's father) which adds to the mayhem around the shop.

The cameras continue to roll as Brett and Wayde travel to their favorite fish suppliers to pick out the perfect fish for the tank. Fish and sharks from all over the world are shown with a description of the fish that they have picked and why they picked those species for the tank.

Next they show how they installed these unique tanks and finally they reveal the finished product to the client. ATM has designed one-of –a-kind tanks for celebrities such as comedian Tracy Morgan, NFL's Bart Scott and the rock band Kiss. Other unique aquariums included a 57,000-gallon aquarium in a Dallas mega church, a jellyfish tank for Monte Carlo's Minus 5 Ice Bar and a 35-foot long marquee tank for the Valley View Casino in California.
