Please help ! Beginner with 700 Gallon Tank!

As far as impact, maybe. But for sure it has more potential to leak because water pressures are x3. Much harder to maintain and to work on generally. Makes a nice FOWLR tank, but check what a adult angel costs. The 700 borders on insanity, but then I am insane. If I had a LFS I might have it.

But moving it again in a few years? Not impossible but wears me out thinking about it.

I'm considering the 240 also as an upgrade for turtle

So while the size was EXTREMELY awesome, I think you all had some really really good advice and based on that I passed on the tank.

While I am open minded to getting one that size, i would like something a little deeper because it will be more accommodating of something like a shark.

Also I wouldnt mind something high but that was too high to grow corals and other things without tinkering with it and as a beginner, i would rather take your reccomendation and get something that is about 300 gallons long.

Thank you all very much. I really appreciate all your advice it truly has been invaluable.

I hate talking anyone out of anything, but I think you did the right thing. Anything over 6' long and you can keep most fish. I have a 300 and think its a pretty good compromise. I want someday to build a 1000, but it won't be more than 30" deep. 15'x3'x3'

Not a bad idea, I use to spawn fresh water tropical fish in kiddie pools in the summertime. Pretty cheap aquarium and they come with a picture of the Little Mermaid.

Iv seen aquariums where they grow some coral and such then put sting rays in long short pools of water, could probably figure out some sort of system to make that work in a backyard haha

I was thinking about that tall 700 and I think I would have filled it just over half way and done a "under and over" aquarium.
