Can I house this shark?

So, i'm thinking about getting a whale shark. I've currently got the atlantic ocean in my back yard and i think its finally fully cycled and ready for more fish. its an 343,423,668,428,484,681,262 gallon setup. Plenty of lighting, filtration. etc.... What kind of experience is needed in keeping one of these alive and well? Thoughts?

don't you have enough whale sharks in your ocean already? haha and actually its around 17 quadrillion gallons, so that would be 17,000,000,000,000,000 haha. Those are pretty cool fish tho.

Yes they are...I just saw one today at the Atlanta Aquarium... The tank he was in was 6.3 million gallons... They have 90 pumps that turn the tank over every hour. It was amazing! I should post some pics!

Kmyers- Next time you go, check out the behind the scenes tour. Try to go around 4PM and you'll be able to catch feeding time from the top of the tank. It's awesome!

Yeah i really wanted to see the behind the scenes too. That stuff interest me more than looking at the fish. I love the inner workings of the aquariums.

Im going to post some pictures today...got to get them off the camera!

Awesome! I think your Atlantic Ocean tank will fit quite a few actually.

I think you should look for something bigger... the Pacific would work.

That's true. If you wanted to keep more than 10 I think you would have to look into the Pacific. ROFL!

Just put the thing in a 10g, keep the gills wet, add a skilter, and you should be fine. Don't forget to clean behind its gills!!
