There’s a Tree In My Tank!

The FTKs are hired to create something completely unique: an African lake re-created in a tank swarming with freshwater cichlids and topped off with an African sausage tree. Jose has never seen a tree like this and worries that his replica might bring the entire project crashing to the ground. Meanwhile, setbacks plague a construction project to build a brand new, state-of the-art quarantine facility that will allow the Kings to provide a variety of fish to their clients.
