VIDEO: Shaq gets a massive Ancient Egyptian-themed fish tank

Did you think Jimmy Butler's giant boombox aquarium was impressive? Well Shaquille O'Neal's Ancient Egyptian-themed fish tank may be even more over the top than the Chicago Bulls guard's aquarium

Like Butler, O'Neal hired the guys from Animal Planet's Tanked to build a custom fish tank for his house. Wanting an aquarium to go with the Ancient Egyptian-themed room in his house (yes this is apparently a thing Shaq has), Wayde King and Brett Raymer custom built a triangle-shaped fish tank that fits the space perfectly.

There is only one grouper fish in the tank but the aquarium is massive, weighing 8000 pounds and holding 800 gallons of water. It even has hieroglyphics on the side that represent all of the different nicknames O'Neal has garnered and created throughout his illustrious NBA career. 

Just a truly unnecessary but spectacular fish tank.
