The new episode represents the dynamic activities involved while designing, constructing and installing a unique robotic aquarium having three tanks, which when packed together looks similar to HighRes’ laboratory automation systems.

Lou Guarracina, the President and Co-founder anticipated creating a solution that will integrate automation capabilities with aquatic life. In response to this vision, HighRes collaborated with Wayde King and Brett Raymer at Las Vegas-based Acrylic Tank Manufacturing, thereby enabling the reality series stars to construct the unique aquarium. From initiation to installation, the project was carried out for more than three months. Its unique, innovative design is under consideration by the Guinness Book of World Records to be recognized as the largest automated fish feeder in the world.

Similar to HighRes’ six-sided MicroStar, the central 625-gal hexagonal tank is covered with an articulated robotic arm with six-axes in order to automatically feed the fish present in all the three tanks. The second rectangular tank has a 730-gal capacity similar to HighRes’ SteriStore automated incubator. Another cylindrical tank with capacity 825-gal is designed analogous to HighRes’ AmbiStore automated carousel.

Numerous aliquots of fish food can be stored in the system within the chilled stackers, accessible for central robot arm. After reaching out for the reservoir of food, the robotic arm opens the lid using HighRes’ LidValet device, and dispenses the food into a tank. The process is leveraged by HighRes’ automation scheduling software called Cellario, and needs no supervision.

The episode will have its first release on April 21 at 9:00 pm ET/PT on Animal Planet.
