Steelers star receiver Antonio Brown is going fishing
Steelers star wide receiver Antonio Brown has teamed with Wayde King and Brett Raymer of Animal Planet's "Tanked" to create a 15-foot-long fish tank in his home.
King and Raymer are co-owners of Las Vegas-based Acrylic Tank Manufacturing, which builds enormous and elaborate tanks and aquariums for celebrities, hotels and casinos, businesses and homeowners across the country.
Brown will featured on the season premiere of "Tanked" at 9 p.m. Oct. 6. Brown's aquarium holds more than 650 gallons of water and is filled with emperor fish, clown trigger fish, and snowflake eel.
The design also includes the team's colors of black and gold, as well as a Steelers log0, Brown's initials and his number 84 and famous sayings "Defeat the Odds," "Business is Boomin'" and "Float Like a Butterfly, Sting Like AB."
Brown also enlisted King and Raymer to help craft a touchdown celebration dance for the next time Brown makes it into the end zone — hopefully on Oct. 8 against Jacksonville Jaguars at Heinz Field.
King and Raymer take on more than 200 projects every year with tanks ranging from 50 to five million gallons.
