Chad Ochocinco sleeps underneath a whole bunch of fish

What you're looking at is the extraordinary bed of New England Patriots wide receiver Chad Ochocinco. I had never before stopped to think about what Chad's bed might look like, but if I had, I probably would've guessed something exactly like this.

The aquarium that arches over the headboard was made by Wayde King and Brett Raymer, who operate Acrylic Tank Manufacturing (ATM), the largest aquarium maker in the country. They make aquariums for casinos, business and celebrities, including Steven Spielberg and Dr. Dre, and now they have their own show on Animal Planet (Fridays at 9 p.m. ET/PT).

Oh, and they also made a shark tank for his living room, upon which three HDTVs hang.

I've got to hand it to Chad. If you're going to do something absurdly extravagant in your home, I like the route he's taken. I love the idea that you have this gorgeous, custom-built shark tank in your living room, but that's not enough to look at -- it needs three big TVs on it, too. I guess there's something for everyone sitting on his 700-ft. couch.

The aquariums aren't without their inconveniences, though. About the fish tank arching over his bed, Chad once tweeted that his fiancé Evelyn Lozada "stares at these damn fish every time before bed." What a tremendous inconvenience! Sometimes, the scalding hot lady in bed next to him likes to look at the fish tank literally built around the bed in which she slumbers. I'll pray for Chad.
