Animal Planet's "Tanked" chronicles the zany aquarium-building antics of brothers-in-law Brett Raymer and Wayde King, who own Las Vegas-based Acrylic Tank Manufacturing. An episode in the reality TV series' season No. 5 put the spotlight on a custom tank designed around a vending machine.

The seahorse-themed aquarium features two tanks built into the side and top of Seaga's Office Deli (OD38) multi-product machine; the vender's snack module on top and entrée sidecar are replaced by tanks, leaving the cold can drink compartment as the base -- and fully functioning.

The original Office Deli had a capacity of 72 snacks, 77 food items and 154 drinks; the latter is still on the menu of the fish tank adaptation. The machine's tanks are now home to seahorses, clownfish and cleaner shrimp.
