10 homes so lavish they have actual shark tanks inside them

Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the waterbed … These homes have their own shark tanks. Okay, so they’re more sand shark than great white, but they fish are still pretty extreme pets. But hey, Shark Week only comes ‘round once a year.

Shehan Pools

If you want to swim adjacent to (instead of with) the sharks, check out this 10,000-gallon aquarium from Shehan Pools. Nestled near a faux, indoor waterfall, the tank holds sharks, stingray, and a variety of fish.

Villa Deep Blue, Airbnb

Just one feature of this $1,000-plus-a-night Miami Airbnb rental is its 15,000-gallon shark tank. It also boasts really amazing views.

Gilbert Arenas’ shark mansion

When former NBA player Gilbert Arenas sold his Virginia mansion in 2014, the sharks in his tank weren’t part of the deal … possibly because they cost $6,500 a month to maintain?

Hollywood Hills

Please pass the salt water: When your dining room boasts a shark tank, you eat with predators every night.

Symphony Pools

We imagine the shark gets offended when the family grills salmon.

Kodevco Canal House

This seven-bedroom Marina Del Rey, California home is kind of the epitome of where we’d expect to find a 10,000-gallon residential shark tank; it also has a glass-bottom pool on the roof and a see-through piano.

Tracy Morgan’s shark tank

Reveal: Tracy Morgan's Shark Tank | Tanked

In a 2012 episode of Animal Planet’s Tanked, Tracy Morgan requested a giant, Jaws-themed shark tank. Is it any wonder that Tracy Jordan’s mantra on 30 Rock was, “Live every week like it’s shark week”?

The Point at Carbon Beach

I would not like someone to invite me to step into their office if there were sharks swimming around in there. It just seems menacing.

Oceans Aquarium

Shark tank in the foyer? Aren’t we fancy.

Issham Aquatics

Located in Saudi Arabia, Issham Aquatics makes some incredible aquariums. The company claims the royal palace shark encounter it built for a private client is the largest residential aquarium. Considering it’s over 420,000 gallons, we believe it.

LG CordZero all in one stick vacuum with auto empty dock.

This content was produced in partnership with LG Electronics.
Cleaning, or more specifically vacuuming your home, is one of those tasks that can be tedious, and genuinely unenjoyable, and yet we all have to do it. It doesn't matter whether you live in a studio apartment or a single-family home, cleaning is a must to get rid of dust, dirt, and other things you track inside. If you have pets or kids, then you'll also be cleaning up fur, pet dander, and various messes -- maybe even food or snack spills. With the right tools, like LG's All-in-One Cordless Stick Vacuum, the entire process is faster and more convenient.

Available with an auto-empty dock, that both automatically charges the unit between uses and keeps the dustbin free and clear of debris, the CordZero Stick Vacuum is a real game-changer when it comes to keeping any space clean. The unique Kompressor technology compresses dirt and dust, fitting more in the dustbin, and allowing you to clean with less stopping, especially thanks to the extended battery life. Normally $849, you can save 30% when you use promo code VAC30, bringing the price down to $594. Plus, you'll receive a free Total Tool Care kit, which includes several add-ons for the vacuum like a mattress tool, flexible crevice tool -- to get into hard-to-reach places -- and extendable hose. That deal is only valid between May 26 and May 29, so don't waste any time if you're interested.
