Most of the fish are too big for my sharks to even get, and if you keep sharks well fed, they won't expend the extra energy to catch more food.

Hey now don't tempt me... I've wanted a sawfish for so long now it's not even funny. As of now though it's impossible to get one.

If you are 5 to 7 years out,with all the advances being made in reef aquarium equipment,wouldn't
It make more sense to wait till closer to your start date?
Just a thought.

I'm going to remove a few tanks from the list here just to save space and money.

As of now the list is:

12 foot Intex pool FOWLR
40 breeder mantis shrimp tank
210 gallon octopus tank
29 BioCube reef
??? gallon shark tank (in office - nothing over 2,000 gallons its going to house smaller sharks)
180 gallon for porcupine puffer

I want to see pics of all these species you've kept. Especially the sharks. Your pics... Not pics from net.

I think the biggest thing with all these threads is none of these tanks are gonna be a reality for about 3-7 years. Why not setup a reef tank, small coldwater tank and fowler right now? That way you'll have a base to go off of. No one on here has any idea of your experience other than what you have said.

Imo the octopus tank does not seem realistic, that tank size seems to small. And maintaining that species seems like something best left to public aquaria.
