    Took me exactly 7 seconds to realize i despise this tank or rather despise the people who are in charge of stocking this tank....... not 1 not 2 but 3 whale sharks......

    SOMETIMES PEOPLE GET SO CAUGHT UP IN TRYING TO FIGURE OUT IF THEY CAN DO SOMETHING THEY FORGET TO STEP BACK AND ASK IF THEY SHOULD DO SOMETHING

    NUFF SAID

    i agree with neil!

    no skimmers as the water is pumped and recycled from the ocean 24/7
    they did manage to have a manta ray born in captivity there

    100% Agree! The first thing I said out loud was: Holy Shit! Whale Sharks!

    Some people should be shot for stupidity!

    But, what an awesome tank! While I don't agree with there being whale sharks in there, that is one amazing tank!

    First I was impressed, then after going through much of the video I got bored in seeing the same fish go round and round and round and round and round and round...I found myself drifting away and thinking about other things.

    The sheer size is impressive, but for me personally, I got bored quickly.

    My first thought was, how the hell are they feeding those whale sharks?
    They consume tons of krill. And we call mandarins and seahorses food specialists.
    I prefer a nice looking reeftank.
    After a while, its just a huge amount of fish, everything grey in grey.
