What's Under The Hood of That Toyota Highlander Aquarium?

When you think of a Toyota Highlander the first thing that comes to mind may not be an aquarium, but that's about to change.  Working with the stars of the hit TV show, "Tanked", IAS designed, built and supplied a custom life support system for this unique 800 gallon saltwater aquarium. Commissioned for the 2013 Specialty Equipment Market Association show in Las Vegas, this system replaced the engine under the hood of a 2014 Toyota Highlander SUV. With creative component selection and placement, the IAS team created a system that included a sump with biological filtration, filter pump, mechanical cartridge filter, UV sterilizer, chiller and foam fractionator. The system was electrically integrated prior to delivery and was installed over the course of two days.
