    Fish Tank Kings - Episode 1, Season 2: The Amazing Aqua-Van
    Premieres Saturday, June 1, at 9 PM ET/PT
    Thinking outside the box is at the top of the team's minds when they are faced with the most complicated job ever - transforming a vintage Volkswagen Minibus into a fish tank for a local car dealer. The years have not been kind to this iconic hippie van, strapped with a questionable structural integrity. Engineering a tank that will weigh 4,000 pounds when filled with saltwater and fish is the craziest and hardest task they have attempted so far. With a tight deadline looming, the team has a likely disaster on its hands. Will they shatter under pressure? Back at headquarters, fish geek Francis is looking for an assistant, but whoever he decides to hire, there's no guarantee they'll be up to the rigorous work schedule or mesh with the guys - all of whom are known for their strong personalities. He puts potential candidate Heather to the test by giving her a quiz on fish species, having her go on a deep-sea dive and having her perform a risky surgical procedure on a venomous fish. Will she be able to hold her own?
