So had the contractor over this morning to build my 300 round tank and him and my hubby convinced me of the 1000 instead sense we have the room. Question is what should we put in there I love different fish. Any ideas? It will be similar to this tank when it's done I will open a thread up for the build when it starts. Attachment 249541

Are you going to do a reef or fish only?

Do you know what kind of dimensions it will be? Really long or really tall?

Angeleyes2325 09-09-2014 11:31 AM

I'm going back and forth on that one I think I may do fish only I like my tanks that are fish only a little better not really into reefs.

The dimensions are going to be as of right now 130" wideX45"deepX40"Tall. My husband is trying to get me to do bigger but I don't know about that. Lol

Depending on actual dimensions, there is probably very little you could not add fish-wise. What are some of your favorites and maybe we can suggest around those.

One of my favorites is the Hi- Fin Snapper (sometimes called Threadfin Snapper). They are incredible when the mature coloring comes out and they get the long fin up top. They get almost 2', so they need space. The largest I've ever seen was probably about 16".

That's a cool fish I was thinking of doing a predator tank. Maybe sharks, rays or I was thinking of Jellys but I'm not sure. I just want something different. Keep in mind I have 7 tanks in my house already lol.

can you imagine the water changes! lol you'd be taking out at least 100-200 g every other week. And the ro/di unit to run that kinda volume would be huge. lol Thats even too much for ME to fathom. :-)

We have a "fish guy" lol that comes weekly to help maintain our larger tanks. We could go up to a 3000 but it would be 10' long which we have the room for but we already have 7 tanks!!! I just don't know what to do.

If I could afford it, I'd go big. Especially if someone else is going to keep it clean and do water changes. :) I'm good doing them for my 240g, but 1000g or 3000g would just be too much for me.

I wouldn't do jellies in a huge tank and the Shark/ray idea could work if the tank design is right (no corners). If I ever did sharks, they would have to be active. A lot just kinda hang out, which I'd get bored with.
