Q: On Saturday, April 14, Animal Planet premieres a second season of your show, “Tanked,” about the custom acrylic fish tank business you run in Las Vegas with your brother-in-law, Wayde King. How did you guys wind up on television?

A: We actually came to them. We actually had a crazy idea. People used to come into our office all the time and say, “You guys are such great characters. You build some amazing tanks.” And I told my brother-in-law, “Aw, you don’t work that much anyway, so you might as well try to get us on TV.” And five years later, we’re on television.

Q: Do you build and maintain all the tanks yourself, or do you work with other companies?

A: We have a variety of different companies that we’re affiliated with across the country. We have our maintenance company in Vegas that we deal with. But we have affiliates in New York and California. When we set up tanks for people, we actually hook them up with our affiliates. But also, we don’t just build tanks for people to maintain them. We build them for hobbyists as well. A lot of people really enjoy cleaning and taking care of their fish tanks, because they’re big-time hobbyists.

Q: How do you help clients choose fish that will live harmoniously together?

A: Clients don’t know the compatibility of fish, what fish goes with what. We give them a class to guide them in the right direction.
