Not much else is planned immediately. The owner of the tank really wants the sharks to grow big, and keeping nitrates down in a shark system is always a challenge. So for now it will stay pretty clean.

In the tank other then the 3 black tips is a Remora, a Pather Grouper, a Bluelined grouper, a Zebra Moray, 3 red squirel fish, 2 Racoon buterflys, 1 Harlequin Tuskfish, and give or take 20 orange striped cardinals, 30 monos and 60 green chromis.

How big are the sharks? They will grow to be how big? What are the dimensions of the tank? Pretty neat to see.

Will all three sharks be able to stay in there at their mature size? 4000 gallons is a lot, but the dimensions don't sound that big when your talking 4 foot fish.

Michaels, the only author to put together a decent book on Sharks & rays, would cosider the size of the tank to be over the minimum for the fish. He reccomends a 2450G system, so this is a bit larger. If all goes well, we should be looking at a 15,000G +/- in the next few years. Consider the costs involved. These size tanks get real expensive, real fast.

It would be cool to see a Ray in there, as well as a large Moray eel. I have not decided weather or not I want to go swimming in thier with either of those occupant however.

The ray I would worry about stepping on when I am trotting around. It's not uncommon to put your foot down unexpectedly or push against the ground when working in there and it's not always possible to check for the Ray before you put your foot/hand down.

And large Morays well they are dumb as bricks and I worry about one of them doing some serious damage with the razors they call teeth. At work we have a Giant Moray that must be over 48" and has tried to bite me before, and I assure you is capable of killing small sharks.
