Toyota, Nickelodeon, and the Animal Planet show "Tanked" teamed up Tuesday to unveil the new 2014 SpongeBob Highlander complete with an 800-gallon custom fish tank in the backseat.

The special "Tanked" edition of the Highlander was revealed at the Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) auto trade show in Las Vegas.

"When we talk about the size and versatility of the new 2014 Highlander, we now can add how many fish swam inside one," Jack Hollis, vice president of marketing for Toyota Motor Sales, said in a statement. "The 'Tanked' designers and Nickelodeon combined the mystery of the ocean and the fun of SpongeBob into a Highlander everyone will be talking about at SEMA."

The tank, which stretches from right behind the vehicle's front seats all the way to the trunk, features 115 individual fish including starfish, squirrelfish, clownfish, and pilot fish.

The construction of the auto-aquarium will be featured on an upcoming March 2014 episode of "Tanked," the Animal Planet reality TV show that chronicles the operations of Acrylic Tank Manufacturing in Las Vegas. The company is co-owned by Wayde King and Brett Raymer.

"Brett and I love the challenge of designing aquariums in every shape and size and welcomed the opportunity to bring living art like this to SEMA," King said in a statement. "The teams at Toyota and Nickelodeon gave us great platforms in the Highlander and SpongeBob SquarePants to create something fun and inspiring for fans."
