HGTV to air special: "Ultimate Aquariums"

By Leonard Ho - Posted Oct 01, 2012 08:00 AM
Cable television network HGTV will premiere an one hour special on October 12, 2012 titled "Ultimate Aquariums." The new show will feature concept, design, and install of high-end custom installations built for "celebrities and the wealthy."


Joe Pineda and Nic Tiemens (both of Infinity Aquarium Design) will host "Ultimate Aquariums," set to air on October 12, 2012 at 1pm ET/PT (12 CT)  Infinity Aquarium Design is a Los Angeles-based aquarium design, fabrication, installation and maintenance company.

HGTV describes their new special programming:

Ultimate Aquariums features over the top, uber-expensive, one-of-a kind aquariums for celebrities and the wealthy. From concept to design and install, we'll get a first-hand look into how these amazing custom aquariums are created with dramatic reveals. With a 1,000 pound column tank, a search for rare fish for Blink 182 drummer Travis Barker's unbelievable aquarium—each aquarium creation is awe-inspiring.

This is the third cable television program about aquariums to hit the air waves in recent years (the others being Animal Planet's "Tanked" and Nat Geo WILD's "Fish Tank Kings").  Note: "Ultimate Aquariums" is an one-time special programming, not a new series.

In 2007, HGTV reached out to the aquarium community in search of "ultimate aquariums" to showcase in an upcoming episode of their series "Man Land."  We don't not believe such an episode ever aired.

We thank our sponsor Marine Depot for providing us the heads-up for this news.
