    500 gallon native fish aquarium

    This is one persons dream of a very large aquarium like you would see in Bass Pro or Cabela's yet not so big it does not fit in a house. This acrylic aquarium is 538 gallons, weighs 700lbs, and was custom made in Fulton Missouri. The aquarium was made for a fisherman that wanted to see a natural setting and native fish in his dream aquarium. 


    Delivery of the new 500 gallon freshwater aquarium

    The delivery of the aquarium was not in the best of conditions; it was near dark and had been raining for about an hour. 



    Setting the large custom aquarium up to be put on its new aquarium stand

    The aquarium is being positioned so it can be placed into its new home. 


    The custom aquarium is in position to be placed in its aquarium stand

    The aquarium is in position and the move to put it on the stand has begun. The space has only a half inch clearance on each side so extreme care has to be taken not to scratch or damage the acrylic aquarium.


    The custom aquarium is being moved into place

    With six people on the other side the aquarium is almost in place.

    Items are being placed into this 48 inch deep aquarium

    This aquarium is big and measures 48 inches deep so great care needs to be taken putting large items into the aquarium with the restricted space above. 

    Putting the drift wood and other items in place requires somebody in this large aquarium


    This large custom dream aquarium is big enough to require our Senior Aquarist to get inside to put everything in place.

      Eating There Way Across Tank

      I just wanted to say thank you. They are slowly eating there way across the tank. Not as quick as I would like but enough to make it worth the wait. Thank you again for being so kind, patient, and understanding. BTW I was able to count 7 yesterday and ...
