Marine fish for 2500 gallon tank

Hello

A friend of mine has taken over his father's 2500 gallon tank.

He wants it as a marine tank


Any idea for marine fish that would be able to live together in this tank???

That's one hell of a tank, lol, maybe he should call seaworld.

Tell your friends pop to sign up, we'd be glad to help him, but it usually doesn't work to well giving advice to a 3rd person, IME.

Hm. Well for such a large tank you could do a few full size angels, a nice school of tangs and so many other potental fish.

That is the thing.

He has gone away to Flordia for four weeks.

He can't actually sign up.

Well, I'm am very partial to sharks. Maybe have him check some out. Here...wetwebmedia.com. have him read the FAQs. In a 2500 he could keep a epaulatte, bamboo, or a horn shark. He could keep 2 sharks. Tell him that the horn can't be mixed with any others though, it's a coldwater one.

If he doesn't want sharks, well i'm partial to emperor angels. He could get a bunch of those and a huge school of green or golden chromis. Have him look at photos, like liveaquaria.com. He better be rich, that is a **** load of salt to buy!

Sounds like he has plenty of time to do some research, cause while he is away from the tank....he can't be setting it up. I'm not trying to discourage, but it really is difficult to advise through a third person.

Sharks are only a good choice if the tank is more round than square and also more shallow than deep.

Holy POOP 8O That is amazing.. What are the demensions of a tank that size? If he dosen't want I would be happy to volunteer my home to the tank lol. I mean you could literally swim with the fishes... Makes my dream 225 seem a bit small. But you sure would need one big magna float to clean that puppy.

Hmmmm 7 bucks a pound for Live Rock and lets say uhhhh 1.5 lbs per gallon so thats about 4000lbs... hmmm $28000 but hey if you have a 2500 gallon tank the cost of the LR is probably not an issue lol
