Exotic Reef Imports of El Segundo, CA, a distributor of live marine fishes, invertebrates, corals, and other marine animals announced that it has been supplying the Animal Planet aquarium show “Tanked” with animals for the last two seasons.
“Tanked” follows Wayde King and Brett Raymer, brothers-in-law and business partners as they traverse the country bidding and building out what are some very outlandish aquarium designs, including an aquarium in a car that was cut in half, a jukebox, telephone booth, and even in a beer keg in a so called “man cave.” The company has built and installed aquariums all over the country, including New York City, Dallas, Florida, California, and the custom aquarium capital of the country, Las Vegas.
King and Raymer go to Exotic Reef Imports each week near the Los Angeles International Airport where they get the best species that will go into the tanks that they build for their customers. The 100,000+ gallon facility is the exclusive saltwater fish supplier for the show.
“We selected Exotic Reef Imports as our exclusive salt water fish supplier on ‘Tanked’ because of the unparalleled diversity and quality of aquatic animals that they gather from around the globe. We enjoy our trips to the Los Angeles area to meet with Rob Miller and the Exotic Reef Imports team and always find the perfect fish to complete each tank. It’s great to be able to take our Animal Planet viewers along,” said Wayde King, CEO of ATM.
Exotic Reef Imports brings in livestock from all over the world, including such locales as Bali, Indonesia, the Philippine Islands, Fiji, the Red Sea, Brazil, Solomon Islands, Kenya, Sri-Lanka, Maldives, Australia, Haiti, Hawaii, Christmas Islands, Sumatra, Indonesia, Belize, and the Dominican Republic.
“We take the utmost pride in making only the finest quality and variety of marine animals available to our wholesale customers around the world,” said Rob Miller, vice president of Exotic Reef Imports. “We enjoy working with ATM and are thrilled to have had the opportunity to showcase our work and our incredible diversity of aquatic animals to a national television audience on ‘Tanked.’”
