TidePool Geek said:Of course, if your home or facility is on the water things get a good bit easier. At the center, we pump our water directly out of the harbor so we don't have concerns about nitrogeneous waste build-up or about chilling the water. Further, because of the constantly changing water we can get by with a somewhat smaller tank - we normally keep our GPO in a tank that's around 700 -800 gallons (3000 - 3500L). To feed them we simply put out a couple of crab pots each day which yields sufficient chow for one GPO.
>> FWIW: The Seattle Aquarium uses a 3000 gallon (13,500L) tank for its GPO exhibit
