10,000g tank? I'd go with fiberglass (acrylic window) all the way with dual external overflows. A 10,000g of this nature should cost roughly $50k realistically, not including plumbing. Definitely a shark tank (maybe reef included) with epaulettes, whitespotteds, zebra hornsharks, and smoothhounds (or similar), blue spot rays, and fast moving fish such as surgeonfish. I'd then call a professional company to come and theme the back wall with the sides acting as overhangs to internally frame the tank. I'd have liverock structures/bommies in various places center.

If I had a 10000 gallon tank I would be very happy.

I may try to do the ultimate Amazn biotope and replicate a section of the river as closely as possible.

Or I'd take a bunch of dividers, divide it into 1000 tens, add circulation and feeding tubes that deposit food in the tanks, add lots of plants, wood, etc, add 250 trios of female bettas and 750 males. The tank would be really tall and long but only the width of two tanks viewable from all angles

If it were up to me, i would divide the tank into 3 parts . Each part would have its own filtration separate from the others . Then the one on the far left would be a freshwater discus tank. Super heavily planted and tons of DW and one large pleco.
The middle one would be brackish. I don't know much about brackish fish, but i know some puffers are brackish, so it would be a puffer tank.
The one on the right would be a saltwater reef tank. Full of LR and all sorts of softies and such.

I think the concept of this tank( or tanks) would tell people that here are different ecosystems than the ones above water.

And the filtration itself would be in another room for people to view and learn about, a place to explore all the tiny creatures that make the tanks run. Under microscopes and stuff.

The tanks would be viewable from all sides and underneath for the kids, but the top would be sealed off for maintenance
crews only.

The Sw one would have a sump visible in the filtration room. A live sump with sponges and shrimps and stuff. There would be tons of charts and several people there to explain it all.


Well now that i have covered everything, i think im done lol.

Lol! Now that i think about it , it would be awesome if several members got together on here and did that! Then held an Aquarium advice gathering! How cool!

More for the tank:

Kids can help with feeding ( if handed the amount of food to be fed and not the whole thing lol)
And
Any people studying for an aquatic job can volunteer.


Oh and of course i would love to be the main caretaker ( water changes and such) but for these tanks i think that i would have to convince my parents that the "bucket and muscle" method is a little extreme.
