Orthodontist Dr. Kawa has a simple request for the new addition to his waiting room aquarium: something “that no one has ever seen before.” Jose and the guys have an idea, and it involves a “mermaid's purse.” Using shark eggs that are rarely seen in fish tanks, Jose performs a surgical procedure of his own to create something truly unique. Then, the team is hired by one of the largest pet fish suppliers in South Florida to build a tank perfect for underwater gardening, or “aquascaping.”
