“Tanked” is sleeping with the fishes.

The Animal Planet reality show followed Brett Raymer, Wayde King and the employees of the Las Vegas-based Acrylic Tank Manufacturing. The series “came to a natural end late last year,” Paul Schur, the channel’s head of communications, told Deadline.com on Sunday.

TMZ reported the show’s cancellation on Saturday, days after the site said Heather King, Raymer’s sister, filed for divorce from Wayde King after she was arrested on domestic violence charges.

During an argument, Heather King allegedly slapped Wayde King in the face and twice kicked him in the stomach, according to the gossip site.

Heather King filed for divorce on March 8, according to Clark County records. The couple have two children, records show.

“Tanked” premiered in August 2011 and featured the duo building elaborate aquariums for businesses as well as celebrities including Shaquille O’Neal, Tracy Morgan and Kiss.
