As Chris points out, whalesharks are already being done. I agree that that would have to be one of the coolest things to see. So far, my most awesome aquarium experience has been at Atlantis resort in Bahamas. A two million gallon system chocked full of fish (an incredible stocking density!) and a manta ray. I was mesmerized by this thing gliding through the water. It was nothing short of incredible.

  Nick, that is the coolest thing I have heard of in a long time. Lets hope it lives, the only thing better would be a baby whale shark. Now I have a good reason to visit California someday! When I was helping out with the local public aquarium they were trying to get some deep water fish for display but it never worked out. Maybe I'm a little silly but I would dearly love to see a great white and be able to watch it over a period of time. Watching large sharks in an aquarium is mesmerizing to me and great white would be the bomb to say the least.
