Swimming with the Sharks

Swimming with the Sharks

This is a 1200-gallon marine predator display that we installed in the summer of 2011. The display is the focal point in a Wilmington De. law office. It stretches 12′ long and is 4′ wide. When we met with the interior designer and architect for the project, their  original idea was just a large aquarium positioned up against  a wall. I introduced the idea to allow the aquarium to become the wall which separates the conference room and the waiting area.  A synthetic reef covers the plumbing that connects to the filter room two stories below the aquarium. The Display is home to several large tangs, a snapper, puffer, and a  huge cow fish. But the real attraction are the Chondrichthyes . There is a 2 1/2 ‘ banded cat shark and a  two foot Epaulette shark from Australia. We will soon be adding several Smooth hound sharks and rays.
