Probably 29 or 30 gallon is the most common size for a home aquarium tank. But many thousands of gallon aquariums have been constructed by some aquarists. Compare to any home aquariums, public aquariums can be dramatically larger. But the kind of aquariums that can hold whale sharks and manta rays are very few. To hold these kinds of aquatic creature, a very large tank is required.
There are not many aquariums that are big enough to make it to our list of largest aquariums in the world. We have looked at the size of their biggest tank (in gallons) in order to compare these large aquariums. Most aquariums contain several tanks and the combined volume of water can be much bigger but only the largest aquarium tank is counted here. A list of the largest aquariums in the world Asia is provided here.
