New 60 cube

Hello everyone,

I have recently discovered my 30 long had some bubbles on the silicone lining.

I have decided to get a 60 gallon cube 24/24/24. Does anyone have any recommendations for this build. Can I get away with just a power filter or do I need a sump?

You can do either, but more water is always a good idea. That and you will have a place to put a skimmer, since you are officially in the zone where large water changes are more difficult to do to manage issues.
Can I ask about these bubbles that they are such a big deal that they weren't noticed before?

I called a friend about it and he said if the silicon bubbles itís a higher risk to leak.

Those have to be pretty big bubbles to be an issue. Have a picture?

They arenít big, I discover them when I was draining the tank. itís hard to see them since the silicon is black.

Though a crappy job, I don't see where this will cause issues with the tank...but with it already drained might as well finish the transfer.

Which do you recommend? 60 cube 24/24/24 or 48/18/26 frag tank or lagoon tank. Which do you think has more potential for a showpiece?

I'd prefer a cube, but that is just personal opinion.

It doesn't matter, because no shark has ANY business being in a tank that size. Liveaquaria has some of the best recommendations in terms of tank size requirements for the animals we keep in this hobby. On top of that, sharks and rays have no business being in tanks with corners or with coarse sand.
