    Hi all, Im a fairly new member but not new to the hobby. I can personally attest to how well this tank was constructed. Im the one who took it down in February with my Dad. Let me tell you it was no easy task but we are fortunate enough to live close by. The front panel was slightly cupped (from the pressure I think) so I will need to flatten it first before we can re-use it. Let me tell you it was heavy. The plan is to reconstruct the tank eventually. Probably looking to do this in 2008 or beginning of 2009 sometime. The project will be chronicled the same way. The new tank will be similar but will be lined with Sanitred Im thinking. May use use fiberglass to seal it but the more I learn about Sanitred the more I like it.
    Its tragic when families are torn apart by something as simple as a pack of wild dogs.

    How much bigger is your shark going to get, probably to big for that tank.

    First off, a big thank you to everyone who has complimented my tank! The tank was truly a joy to own, and was problem free the whole time.

    As it turns out, my family outgrew our old home before the sharks outgrew the tank! It was time to move, and I couldn't take it with me. I'd always known that the tank would be "hit or miss" when it was time to sell the house. Many people who came to see the house were intimidated by the tank. Most felt it would be too much work to care for. I made it known that I would be willing to remove the tank before sale, but the buyer decided they wanted to keep it.

    A few months later, the buyer contacted me looking to get rid of the sharks. Seems they decided they would rather have the floor space, than the tank. The sharks were given to a local shark enthusiast with many years of experience, and multiple tanks. I contacted Phixer (also local) and told him where he could find lots of parts for free, if he'd be willing to tear down the tank.

    The tank was tore down, and as they say, the rest is history.
