I have allways wanted a tank where it is a bar or kitchen island. So normal counter top then a fish tank under it and part of the floor is part of the tank. Or a wall tank that goes down to the floor and you can actually walk on it

Andrew gibson August 11, 2012 at 4:19 pm

I have always wanted to build a fish tank that is used as a window or a fish tank that was in the shape of a lava lamp but like 3 or 4 feet tall and like 1 or 2 feet wide.

Andrew gibson August 11, 2012 at 4:27 pm

I have also wanted to build a aquairm that is a counter top with thi stools as a fish tank too.

I absolutely love your show, you guys crack me up…..the tanks you guys do are amazing, my husband loves fish but we cant afford any beutiful ones like yours. He has a 55 gal with boring fish in it. No colors available around us…….i see the beautiful freshwater colors you guys have wish I could find some for him but my favorite tank was a round one pictured on this website……..MAN that was awesome. If you ever feel like rewarding someone for loving your show and not missing any episodes, im your person and my husband would be so very grateful……love you guys and all that are on the show, cool people. If you ever feel like expanding to Madison WI i would love to work for you guys.

I am 9 years old and watch your show all the time. I have a 14 gallon bio cube with two – 3 year old clown fish. They have spawned a couple times…and I’ve tried to hatch them. I have it on video. I share my bedroom with my brother and sister and love them just as much as I do…we’ve named them Boss and Reeses. They are outgrowing their tank and I would like to get a built in one. I have a disease called narcolepsy/cataplexy and these fish calm me. They were given to me as a gift when I was first diagnosed a year ago when I was 8 years old.
I have picked out a perfect spot in my room for this tank but need your help. Please email my mom if you could help me, I live in Thousand Oaks, CA. Thank you Jimmy

Mark & Melisa Gutierrez January 6, 2013 at 12:07 pm

Hello, we live in Irvington, AL. Our 17 year old son Nicholas has Dechenne Muscular Dystrophy and is permanently in a wheel chair. He has learned so much about animals and loves them (as well as fish). His condition makes him very limited on what he can do, so video games have become his life now. He’s very good at it too. I thought it would be so cool if he had a fish tank in his room that looked like a playstation game controller. How cool would this be? Would it be possible to create something like this? Please email us back your thoughts. We’d love to hear from you.

Elias Peralta January 19, 2013 at 1:06 pm

Hello I’m Maria and this is my idea fish tank like a wall border around the bedroom connected to a large tank in the corner of the room

Thank you sincerely Maria

Tiera H. April 5, 2013 at 11:32 pm

Hello . As I write to you guys im watching your show on a.p . I have two red ear sliders (turtles) and would like to know what type of unique tank I should use for them. They are still babies and would like to get a tank that could support them. I also would like fish to go with them. I dont want it too big because the next time I move I would like to take all of them with me. I currently live in El paso tx and will soon try to move back into my other house in Virginia. My idea is to have two different tanks and have them as a softball and a basketball. The softball is for my turtles and the basketball would be for neon color fish or the fish could match the sport. Please write back, Tiera H.

He yelled there they are i want them to build me a fish tank! I said to him OK ill see what i can do. All i can say is he as a great imagination and he said he would just love to have a tank around his bed so he can sleep with the fish.. lol! We do a lot of fishing and for 8 yr old he can name all the fish that are in the lake we fish for.. so i don’t know what u guys are looks for but it would be a dream come true for Matthew.. Thank you!!..

Julie Luke June 22, 2013 at 2:02 pm

Hi Brett and Wayde ! My name is Julie. I absolutely <3 fish. I also <3 cats. I know that that isn't a very good combination, but I really want a fish tank in the shape of a cat that my real cats can look at. By the way, I live in Madison ,MS and I am 11 years old. Please respond!

(p.s. : no catfish in the tank)

gianna June 29, 2013 at 12:45 am

I have 12 aquatic turtles i always wanted them to be happy right now they are living in a boring turtle tank it is a 40 gallon tank and i know it is to small. I would want a great filter and the uvb lights and heater, heat lamp, a place where they can bask and lay eggs, and fish that will not kill the turtles and the turtles won’t eat them. I want a great turtle tank that i can fit more turtles in the tank, well a big tank i do not know what size tank would be great and comfortable for them but just big but not to big. My turtles will grow to be 12” in lengh and some smaller. If someone could build this tank for me it would be tanked.

Patricia Riley June 29, 2013 at 3:22 pm

My son Jeremiah has always been a big pet lover. He has had every thing from chickens to lizard to guinea pig to fish. Just recently he had me use his fish tank for his new found friend an agama lizard. My son watches your show in amazement every day. He sits there in awe wishing for a tank like the ones you build!! I absolutely think it would be my sons dream come true for you to build him “the best tank ever!!” He has always been such a creative young man, and has so many ideas for a custom built fish tank! If you all would ever consider building him one, he would absolutely fall over with excitement!! Please keep us in mind for your next big idea!!!

Erin Barrett July 12, 2013 at 10:03 am

We are building a conference center in the basement of the tallest building in Dover, DE. We would like to have a large fish tank in the lobby/entrance to the conference room. I’ve always had fish tanks but have no idea or creativity of making designing this. Is there a possibility of making the show?

We have a banquet room on the top floor that seats 410 and we do a ton of Weddings and Special Events.



Jacob Henri-Laroque July 22, 2013 at 12:47 am

Hi Wayde and Brett. I am 10 years old and I live in Rockland Ontario. I watch all your shows an i like what you do. I would love that you guys would come and make a shark tank, i love any type of shark but mostly black tip shark. I would like that they have a castle in their tank and any other exotic fish. You could make that tank on top of my bunk bed. Please write back, thank you!!!

Jacob Henri-Laroque July 22, 2013 at 1:01 am

Hi its me again and i canot sleep because i am thinking of my fish tank could have little crabs and shrimps. Please give me some idea for my tank and i will describe it for you. Please write back!!! Thank you!!!

Austin and I am 11 years old July 22, 2013 at 10:11 pm

Hey guys, if you read this that would be good, because we have a freshwater aquarium. An algae eater and he likes to flip the rocks around and food, waste, and algae float in the water, and we have a thing that keeps the tank clear we clear the filter and it is still dirty. It is not the fountain filter, we have something else. What would you do for your tank if you we’re in that situation? And I love show I watch your show every day and it is my dream for you to build a tank for me and my family, and you Wayde and Brett are very funny and why does Redneck live in the back of your company. P.S. sorry for the whole Redneck thing.

Lisa Levin-Zolnoski August 14, 2013 at 6:05 pm

Hi. I’m not sure you have did any tanks up here in the igloo country. Well not really igloo. I’m from Hamilton ontario. Close to toronto and close to the amazing ripleys aquarium. I don’t have a big house but would love a simple saltwater aquaium. With some gobies , tangs and etc. Hope you can make my dream tank come true up here in the great white north .

Thank you

Theresa Meredith June 20, 2015 at 1:59 pm

I’m looking for a custom built fish tank for my husband.

dAdez Ramirez June 29, 2015 at 6:59 pm

I just want to throw in an idea.
I think America wants to see ATM “TANKED” make a huge custom build aquarium in the white house for display when the world leaders walk in to visit and discuss business, it would be a great attraction to the guest and those who live there.
Most importantly, it will ease the mind of our President and his family for decades to come.
Ps. That tank will be written down in history.

teri anderson August 24, 2015 at 8:53 am

My mother has recently passed away leaving me an old player piano that has been converted into a regular piano. we would like to donate it to you Free of charge. the only catch is we have no funds to ship it to you…. it would have to be picked up . could you let us know as soon as possible please

Tara September 3, 2015 at 3:39 pm

Hey guys,
I talked to Wayde a few years ago about coming down to sunny south florida to create a luxury spa tank for the beautiful Spa 66 in the legendary Hyatt Pier 66 in Port Everglades- Fort Lauderdale Florida.
My husband and I took over and renovated the spa 3 years ago and its been my husbands dream to have a salt water live coral aquarium in the front entrance which joins the lanai lounge and over looks the waterfall swimming pools in the lanai gardens. Its really a beautiful spa. Lots of crystal, underwater photographic art gallery has is a newest local art on display. Lots of famous people who we can’t mention have been part of our many VIP guests who frequent the spa daily. The spa is located on a barrier island on 22 acres set on the intracoastal waterways surrounded by mega yachts. We would really love to have you guys work your magic to create a special underwater experience for our guests and all our visitors.
Hope to hear from you soon!

Azure September 26, 2015 at 8:05 pm
