Complete Custom, super size aquariums - super size, super style, and super challenges.
2,000 gallon custom shark tank:
2,000 gal shark tank, with 3D rock background, custom sump filter. Tank was built using high-impact resistant glass on site, stand was made of several sections of steel/wood cabinets locking each other, run by multiple AquaVim 2600gph SuperQuiet pumps, lighted by multiple AquaVim single-strip LED lights.
Since a pre-made tank in this size would be too big to transport on any vehicle and its owner did not want us to break any wall. The main challenge relating this custom shark tank project was not its 2,000-gallon size, not its odd pentagon shape, and not its structure engineering, but the difficulty of having to move all materials, including a 16-ft long steel-sandwiched wood cabinet stand section and a 12-ft long strengthened glass pane weighing over 1,000 lbs, into the lake-facing sub-floor of a private mansion far off road, unreachable by crane or other heavy lifting vehicles, through a window only 49" wide x 39" high. This was much more of a challenge than lifting a super size aquarium and put into an office on 22nd floor of a skyscraper building in Manhattan, NY.
The 2,000 gallon setup was sold and maintained by Complete Aquariums, Aqua Vim's exclusive dealer for Bedford Hills, NY area.
