Conway, South Carolina – The hit TV series “Tanked” was in Conway in April filming the installation of the Blackwater aquarium at the Horry County Museum and the show will air on Friday, September 26, at 10 p.m. on Animal Planet.
The 2,200-gallon tank was a new addition to the Horry County Museum and includes native species like blue gill, bass, catfish and a fake beaver dam. The tank had to be assembled in three different pieces onsite due to its large size.
The show “Tanked” is a 40-minute reality show that follows “the antics of two brothers-in-law as they run the largest aquarium manufacturing company in the nation called Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (ATM). “Tanked” “brings the secrets of the underwater world to the surface with a comedic twist, leaving viewers amazed and enthralled with each project from conception to final reveal,” according to the “Tanked” website.
Each episode takes 40 to 60 hours to film.
The Horry County Museum is open Tuesday through Saturday from 9 a.m. until 5 p.m., except on county holidays. The museum is located at 805 Main Street in Conway and can be reached at (843) 915-5320.
