So far so good. They installed the RO machine today. Should be ready for sharks in a few weeks. The water tested perfect and it is crystal clear.

I have the water cycling for about two weeks now. The guys added all the chemicals and salt and it has just been running since then. It has been running through the standard filtration.

Correct me if I'm wrong, and I'm not being a critic, but don't sharks prefer/require a rounded off tank due to swimming patterns? I hear that their fins will actually wear down unnaturally due to swimming and bumping into the corners...

Yes they do prefer it. In big enough tanks its much less of an issue. Just make sure your sharks don't get too big.

Yes primarily with requiem sharks. The sharks I will be purchasing are less active and smaller. I am sure the round is preferred regardless but I could not find one with this large of a foot print.

You could round the corners of the tank with acrylic or place decorations in the corners to prevent them from bumping into them?
