Not to mention that some acrylic tanks I have seen seem to scratch easily. I couldn't imagine what that tank will look like in a few years

So often they're stuffing black tips, nurse sharks, AND carpet sharks into systems that aren't even adequate for ONE of them when full grown. Unless they have a service where once the sharks outgrow the tanks they find new homes for them and get new babies, I don't see how things work out...
i agree with the skateboard tank (cant remember what company it was for) but i remember a larger oval shaped install they did that the wife had to climb into to place corals (fake at that) i specifically remember them stating that there was already a bigger tank that was queued to be the future home for the sharks when they get too big

Well, they kind of showed how they handled that for the skateboard tank... Flash cooled the extra thick acrylic for more scratch resistance and had the skaters use the softer wheels. I still think the tank would end up scratched over time, but probably long after the fish stressed themselves to death :P

I remember that too, but I have to wonder where they're putting all these sharks when they get full grown... Unless they have public aquariums or massive restaurant/casino tanks that they're supplying them to, there are VERY few home aquariums that are going to be big enough for half the shark species they're fond of using... I think I remember them even putting a hammerhead in one of the tanks

I saw one tank on there that was half sharks and the other half alligators. The gators were on loan so maybe they do the same with sharks

...Gators and sharks in the same tank??? I've only been watching the episodes on Netflix, they don't have that one yet... Even beyond the aggression issues of the two sides, aren't gators freshwater??? I thought only Crocs could handle saltwater long term...

The tank was divided but it was still a terrible setup. The drum set tank they made really made me mad.
