3750 Gallon Caribbean Reef Aquarium
We were commissioned by the Tennessee Aquarium to build this 3750 gallon display for a renovation project in 2018. The aquarium is 144” x 72” x 108”. This fiberglass aquarium was built in two pieces and assembled on site. Without having easy access to the building, the two halves of the fiberglass aquarium and acrylic viewing window were all craned through a second story opening in the side of the building. Once inside, the 4.5” thick acrylic window was hung from the ceiling and the fiberglass halves moved into place. The installation consisted of onsite fiber glassing and silicone of the panels making everything water tight.
A second acrylic window is in the back of the aquarium. By using the second window and creative lighting, the aquarium seems to have remarkable depth. As you look through the rock work on the back wall, it appears to go on and on into the deep blue ocean.
