Lynch’s tank was appropriately decked out with some of the baddest tropical fish in the sea. His new pets include a Blue-lined triggerfish, or “the team captain,” as the hosts put it; a Harlequin tusk fish, which has a set of mean-looking blue teeth; and a Volitan lionfish, aptly named for its pointed poisonous fins.

But it’s not just the fish that put Lynch’s tank into Beast Mode. The 500-gallon bulletproof tank was also designed in the shape of the “B” logo of Lynch’s Beast Mode brand, and even came installed with neon-lit “B” logos inside the tank.

“Oh, yeah, this turned out nice,” Lynch said of his fish’s new digs. “They’re going to have a good time in there. It’s perfect.”
