Houdini tank built by ATM for Neil Patrick Harris' Magic Castle.

Acrylic Tank Manufacturers, the Las Vegas-based, family-run aquarium business that is the focus of the Animal Planet show "TANKED," has just built a one-of-a-kind aquarium for Magic Castle, a show hosted by Neal Patrick Harris that debuts September 15 at 9 p.m. (ET/PT).The acrylic tank replica is based on a tank that made the magician Houdini famous. It features a variety of fish complete with a replica of Houdini in the middle of the tank, upside down and restrained.

"The Magic Castle's 50th anniversary is right around the corner and we found the perfect way to celebrate with a custom built Houdini escape themed aquarium from Animal Planet's TANKED," Neil Patrick Harris, President, Academy of Magical Arts said in a prepared statement. "Wayde and Brett created something so special and I know our members will cherish it for years to come."
