I was going to put in on the second level but the reinforcment would have affected the room below it which is a mat room (for judo workouts and wrestling) and the mat I have down there is custom designed to fit every corner in the room. I was afraid I would have damaged or had to change it somehow and those things cost about 8k for the size that I have. It would have been a pain in the ***. So I decided against it.

I might. I work all the time so I have a guy that is going to clean and do water changes monthly so I dont have to mess with it. I dont have much time because of my schedule to do it. I need someone that can do it all though. Yard person, maintence, aquarium and a pool person which will be in a few months I think. That way I dont have to hire a seperate person for each thing. That would save me some money. LOL

Eppulatte, Bamboo something along those lines. I would like to get a white tip but the tank is not big enough for long term. If I can get an exact time line on the bigger one I want to build I might get a white tip but I want to be sure that I can get the bigger inclosure to house it properly. I also thought about a short tailed nurse shark. If you guys have any other ideas please let me know. I have not purchased anyting yet so its wide open.

I plan on houseing around two sharks and a stingray (smaller breed). Maybe some blue tangs or some tank mates that will get along with the shark.

The acrylic guys who are buffing out my tank cancels on me and have to reschedule so I will hopefully be able to send pics by Friday. Should be up and finished on Friday August 10 or sooner.
