Has anyone here ever kept any shark or ray species in their tank? I'm beginning to research the possibility of a large new tank project (still a couple of years away), and it may be awesome to have a bamboo shark or catshark or epaulette or something. Please tell me about your experience, pros and cons, type and size of shark, tank size and type, reef or no, support systems, etc. Also if you want to recommend any good reading on the topic that would be great. Thanks in advance!

Definitely cool!

My SILs brother sells fossils for a living and he made or is making a really cool one similar to yours. I don't want to figure out posting photos from my phone to this page but you can see it on his IG page. fossilogic

Aquarium Related Classifieds : 180 gallon reseal

Hmmm. I don't know how much experience you have with aquariums, but I am going to assume that I can give you some advice. Please forgive me if I'm saying something here that you already know.
Have you paid for it already? If not, my advice is to hold off until you can show me pics. I've bought many dozens of pre-owned tanks over the years. I do not buy tanks where the silicone bead is all chipped, ragged or yellow.  Has the tank been sitting outdoors for even just a few months? Does the silicone have a yellowish hue? Is the plastic frame faded, chipped or cracked? How about the cross braces?
Scratches on an old glass tank can totally ruin the viewing experience and it's really not worth it to try to sand out those scratches. To the experienced eye, scratches are practically invisible and very hard to see on a dry tank. They are even harder for an inexperienced person to see.
Additionally, old tanks often have corner chips which, while the tank is still together with the original silicone are generally not a problem, but the stress of disassembly and reassembly often makes the glass vulnerable to a crack that can travel clear across the pane.

Even if the tank is being given to you free, it may not be worth fixing. Do you have an idea of what the going rate is to do what you are asking, to take apart a 180, clean off all traces of silicone (so the new silicone can stick properly) and to silicone it back together? My ball park quote is $500, almost all labor.
In the end, really old tanks are best used for reptiles, amphibians or rodents.
This advice is yours for free, a benefit of being a WMAS member.

I may be able to do that but depending on its condition, I also might advise an alternative. A tank that is old enough to need silicone replaced is also old enough to have significant scratches. In order to give a decent quote, I need to know what type of tank it is and would also prefer to see it in person. To get started please post a pic here or email a pic to mark@marksreef.com

Great. I still recommend checking the Auto-Shut-Off Valve at the RO Unit. As you may know, the purpose of the Auto-Shut-Off Valve is to decrease the pressure at the ATO Valve so it operates better and longer. ATO valves will fail too soon when they have to hold back 60 psi rather than ~12 psi. If you want, I can check it for you and install a new Auto Shut-Off Valve if needed. I'll be back up north next week.

General Help : Sun Star good or bad

Adam is saying that he has lots of soft coral for the Star to eat and doesn't mind that, right?
I believe it's urchins and other stars they like the most, rather than soft coral. I suppose though, like all the animals we keep, in the absence of it's favorite food it will find other stuff to eat, rather than die.
