Jimmy Butler got a boombox fish tank

ALL BALL NERVE CENTER — Jimmy Butler recently signed a long-term extension to stay with the Chicago Bulls, and now that he can put down roots long-term, he decided to get a huge fish tank in his new home, as one does. So Butler called in the guys from the Animal Planet show “Tanked,” who create custom-themed fish tanks, and asked them to make him something music-related.

So they apparently put together a 6,000-pound fish tank that plays music.

According to the Chicago Tribune

The 6,000-pound tank was set up by Wayde King and Brett Raymer, the stars of Animal Planet’s “Tanked.” The episode featuring the installation of Butler’s saltwater aquarium is scheduled to air 9 p.m. Friday.

The 9-feet-tall, 10-feet-long aquarium holds more than 600 gallons and 50 fish — for the Bulls’ upcoming 50th anniversary — including the Jordan’s tuskfish to honor Bulls star Michael Jordan.

The aquarium has a custom bubbler to make it look like it’s a boombox equalizer, but the feature Butler seemed to enjoy the most is the wireless speaker system on top so music can filter through the tank.

“My fish gonna be bumpin’ here,” Butler said.

    If there’s anything that living fish love, it’s music booming through their water. Why doesn’t Butler just cut to the chase and pump in some Navy sonar. Why kill fish in three minutes when they can be killed in three seconds.
