LAS VEGAS — It wasn't all about horsepower at the 2013 SEMA Show as things took an aquatic turn with the debut of the 2014 Toyota Highlander SpongeBob Squarepants Tanked Edition.

The special model features an 800-gallon aquarium loaded with 115 tropical fish, including a pilot fish, the automaker said.

The fishy theme includes a special vehicle wrap with blue waves and pink jellyfish. The aquarium begins behind the front seats and stretches the length of the vehicle.

"When we talk about the size and versatility of the new 2014 Highlander, we now can add how many fish swam inside one," said Jack Hollis, Toyota Motor Sales U.S.A. vice president of marketing.

After the SEMA show, the public can get a look at the "Tanked" Highlander at the 2013 Los Angeles Auto Show.

Edmunds says: No, it's not Bikini Bottom — it's the SEMA show.

    800 gallons = 6500 lbs of dead weight (water) in a car-based SUV. Not buying this, or my math is way off. Maybe 800 lbs of water would fly.
