Well, considering they get over 5', you'll need a pretty large tank. 5,000 gallons maybe?

But 8' by what? Most tanks are under 30" front to back. That's not much room for a creature that size. 8' x 8' would be ok I guess....

8' x 2'? That's not large enough for that fish. he should call the local public aquarium and see if they will put it in their shark/ray tank.

He would live fine with nurse sharks as they're both bottom dwellers, depending on how the the nurse sharks are.
