"I wanted bright fish that I could strike up a relationship with," he tells PEOPLE. "Specifically, sharks and fish that have great personalities that would know you."
So Hasselhoff, 63, turned to aquarium designers – and reality TV stars – Wayde King and Brett Raymer for help. The results will air on the season premiere of Animal Planet's Tanked.
"The tank guys suggested that we put in a little bit of Knight Rider, Baywatch and, of course, the Berlin wall," says Hasselhoff. "So they put in an actual piece of the Berlin wall, as well as a lifeguard tower and the Kitt car."

[YOUTUBE "JS9hjJJ9nWc"] Oh, hell yes!
The teaser trailer for the sequel you know you secretly wanted is out, and it's sharktastic, sharkalicious and sharking good fun.
The Sharknado 3: Oh Hell No! teaser points out that the biggest blockbusters come in threes – which means that this biting comedy now joins the ranks of The Lord of the Rings, The Dark Knight and The Godfather.
Sure, The Godfather had Marlon Brando, but this film, which airs on Syfy on July 22 at 9 p.m. ET, sees David Hasselhoff joining Ian Ziering and Tara Reid as sharks rain down on Washington D.C. (and into Abe Lincoln's lap).

[YOUTUBE "ZTidn2dBYbY"] Fiery special effects, a classic sports car, the hero wearing a leather bomber jacket and rocking a mullet – so far it sounds like classic David Hasselhoff. But The Hoff's new music video has all that and more, much more. It has dinosaurs.

[YOUTUBE "ZiUVuTTN-bw"] It was '80s night on American Idol and even though there are some very talented singers left in the competition, the performance of the night didn't belong to one of the contestants.

This is the best possible reason to get the Knight Rider theme stuck in your head.

Things are getting wild Down Under for the Hoff!
The actor spent Wednesday teasingly Tweeting photographs of what appeared to be a marriage proposal to girlfriend Hayley Roberts, then headed to the Taronga Zoo, where he skirted questions from reporters and enjoyed the company of Aussie animals, including a grey kangaroo named Cobar.
"We're not making any comments about our personal life right now," he told Sydney's Daily Telegraph. "What we are doing is spending a day at the zoo."
The engagement photographs turned out to be illusions, but the animals were real.
