I want to get some informer about other people shark tank for black tip and other.

I want to build a shark tank and want to know how big the tank should be like how long and wide and where to get a shark or who might have one.
The shark tank is only going to be for small black tip. And when it get bigger I would like to sell it. To some one in Calgary.

And I would like to see your shark tank to get some idea and that

Hope to here from you

You're looking at at 2000 gallon tank. That's what they had at Island Pets and it looked small still for black tips which are constant swimmers, unlike bamboo and catsharks. The bigger the better. Think swimming pool size. Smaller black tips kept in smaller size tanks generally die from crashing into the sides or jumping out or just stress from being in too small an enclosure. Beautiful but probably one of the less suitable species for the aquarium unless its a public aquarium with tanks in the tens of thousands of gallons. I doubt anybody in Calgary is set up to keep a black tip adult or even sub-adult. They are also messy eaters so the filtration system would cost an arm & a leg. They fed their black tip sharks at Island Pets whole salmon.

The one we are running now I believe it's roughly 14 foot diameter.will have a couple sharks in there.
There is a quick youtube on our channel showing the rock design.

Hey guys, keep it on topic please. If you have nothing informative to contribute, please continue on to a different thread. Like maybe this one: http://www.canreef.com/vbulletin/showthread.php?threadid=58269&page=725

I have to say that if you do get a 2000+ gallon tank and a Black Tip Shark, please share as many pictures as possible with us. As far as I know, it would be a first for Canreef.

Wow, this is wrong in so many ways.

I guess by saying yes we have built aquascapes for large tank to house sharks (for a long commitment time not a short burst of fun and leave)

For a shark tank (black, white tip,..) that needs at least 12 cube foot tank, we would never suggest a smaller tank for a shark.

To get such tank built and running you require a decent amount of money as the shark alone might be in the range of $1000 but the build itself and to have it properly running you need at least 30 times that above price.

And on top of it all you need the commitment for such system.
You just shouldn't get a 2 foot pet shark for a year and house it in a small tank for your own enjoyment only then KILL IT as its really hard to rehouse a shark.

There are other fish that could be housed in a nano up to a swimming pool size,yes its not prime for any fish but we all do our best to supply our pets the best we could do.

Just for a reference the last shark build was at least costing the customer $30000 and without a shark yet running for 2 months,..

I will be happy to walk you through getting a shark tank information and understanding the living requirements of such a beautiful beast.

OK, an on topic post. In my opinion, you will need a very, very large tank to keep these sharks in captivity, at least the size of an Olympic swimming pool. I base my opinion on my observations of seeing these creatures swimming in their natural surroundings when I am scuba diving. I am making no comment on other fish available in the fish trade. If the original OP wants to say, "while, what about this fish.." we can debate that elsewhere.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO STOP ok I told you all to ingorne that all I was text and I was on the phone with some one ok but thank you for your help I will be talk to you about it and sorry I don't want you to build it. I don't have that for some one to do that for me. Thanks
And I can get a shark from golds for $500 to $600

The shark is the inexpensive part. The cost of the tank and the filtration will be much more impressive. Not to mention the ongoing maintenance costs.

If you're concerned about the price difference between buying a shark for $500 or $1000 I get the impression that the shark tank build might be about $30-40,000 more than you're thinking.

If that's out of your budget range,then consider a smaller less active shark like a Bamboo Shark.

Heres the thing Ghosttruck, you're all over the road like a drunk driver. What most people are understanding from your posts is this; you want a large shark in a small tank. You dont think its going to cost upwards of $10,000 + to house one. You want to have said shark for a short time, then return it, sell it whatever. Whatever you say beyond that, you're not going to get a lot of support from most of the members here, who deeply care about the well-being of the animals we keep.

I would suggest you get off your butt, stop cluttering the board with nonsense, and go talk to Eli, who has experience with what you are looking for.

...and if you do put a Black Tip Reef Shark in a tank smaller than 1000 gallons, please do not share it with us, or I will report you for animal cruelty.

Just wondering, why do you want to keep a shark only to turn around and sell it? When it gets too large for the tank you eventually decide on, how many aquarists do you think will have a large enough tank for the shark or are you planning on just selling him to the highest bidder no matter how much experience they have or how suitable their tank is?

ghosttruck
04-13-2016, 12:34 AM
Ha now that I really I have time to figer every thing out. I would like to keep in for ever. And I don't have a tank set up for it yet. But I will have a shark tank it might not be for a black tip it would be for a shark that smaller

Because you are here for your own childish entertainment.
