Actually sorry I wanna take that back.. after re-reading I misunderstood. If you don't have a basement then that'll drop the price majorly. Should be as simple as removing that section of flooring and pouring in a foundation which really shouldn't be to bad on price.

Keep in mind though this is a permanent modification to your home. If I had the funds though I'd have myself a 1000 gallon reef

Haha I wish but that would burn a hole in my wallet. Maybe in the future since it was a reef before.

It was in the garage so there was concrete slab there already.

Hiring an engineer would definetly be the safest way to go but imo you could call some contractors and get some quotes to have them remove your floor and everything below then just pour a foundation for the tank. Its pretty simple unless you have plumbing/electrical running through there which being so much area there probably is

Also- since you want a shark tank- you're gonna need to look for a way to round the corners out. Sharks do not like corners. That's why they are usually placed in round tanks. Could be as simple as just putting inserts in the corners or building a rubble wall

Jlsardina is right. Also I wish I had that tank. That is the one tank that will end my collection. Unless I find a bigger tank.

My collection will end when I get my bubble room with a 360 degree view of my reef (excluding my tunnel out like at the big aquariums).. that'll be my mancave!

Great. Now I want that tank. I also want a nice 10,000 gallon aquarium after I read the thread 9,000 gallon build.
