Behind the Scenes: 375g Aquarium in a Waiting Room

This is a 375 gallon freshwater aquarium in the Pediatric Intensive Care Waiting Room in a Children’s Hospital. 

It is setup as a room divider with the tank measuring 6’ Long x 18” Wide x 48” High.  The walls are 1” thick acrylic which can be a pain to clean at times. 

It is accessed by raising and propping up the front canopy panel.  It has an Ocean Clear canister for the filtration system.  I custom ordered the acrylic tank and built the stand myself. 

This is the tank that you will see me sitting inside of in some pictures.  I have broken it down and climbed in a couple of times over the years to redo decorations and modify the filtration system.

It grosses around $1,980 per year which comes to around $165 per hour.
