Update on shark tank build:::
What do you guys think of this for a tank? I have been talking to my aquarium builder and am now thinking of a 250-300g acrylic cylinder aquarium, with a height of around 30". This way the shark would be able to swim in a circular pattern and wouldn't have any squared edges of the tank to harm itself on. I am also planning on setting up an auto water change system for automatic bimonthly water changes or weekly depending on bioload.
He also mentioned he can do an infinity tank so that there is no need for an overflow box. Here is an example of an infinity on a cube tank...
I am also thinking about a 50g refugium for macro algae or getting a large ATS algae turf scrubber built to sit along side the sump.
For a skimmer, I currently have an AquaC EV-240 on my 72g, but I am thinking an AquaC EV-1000 might be the way to go for this build... Open to suggestions.
For the stand I am going to have a metal frame (cylinder) built with covers so I can access all sides, this way I can place my filtration in a circle. Waiting to get the tank build before starting this.
For lighting, I am thinking of 16000k 30w LED
floodlights on a frame (built to match metal stand) hanging from the ceiling. This tank not have any coral do it's purely for aesthetics and to let the fish know what time of day it is! I may also put some 10w red LED
floodlights for nighttime viewing (just turn them on and off when I'm viewing the tank, I've tried this on my current tank and all the night critters don't seem bothered by it.
Any thoughts suggestions or comments welcome.
