Build the Ultimate Virtual Fish Tank!
Nat Geo WILD and Neo-Pangea give fish fans the tools to bring elaborate digital fish tanks to life
Anyone can build an amazing tank in minutes at http://fishtankbuilder.nationalgeographic.com.
Imagine your gorgeous seascape teeming with realistic, exotic life. A hermit crab scuttles past a sunken pirate ship while an excitable puffer fish inflates overhead. A curious scuba diver investigates a glittering treasure chest next to a gently swaying sea anemone. The soothing tranquility of a deluxe saltwater aquarium is now available to anyone, anywhere, free of the concerns of cost or maintenance.
“We challenged ourselves to build this experience entirely in HTML5 to accommodate desktop and tablet users,” said Aaron Beaucher, Neo-Pangea’s Ambassador of Inspiration.
Whether builders choose to dive in using their computers or iPads, this fun, colorful interactive experience lets eager designers choose their tank’s name, theme, background, base, décor, and of course, the fish who will call it home. Uploaded photos can even be used as backgrounds to create spectacular one-of-a-kind designs.
After each tank has been expertly arranged into timber-shivering splendor, proud designers can feed their fish, tap on the tank glass, snap photos of their creations, and even invite their friends via social media to interact with their live tank and then build their own. Best of all, these amazing creations never need cleaning!

Nat Geo WILD’s Fish Tank Kings begins an all-new season on April 28 at 9 p.m.
