I just wanted your opinions on how many gallons an Orca would need.
(Please note I am not going to get an Orca, only Seaworld kidnaps them and shoves them in tiny tanks)

A 10 gallon will do I think. Their dorsal fin does bend. Just ask Seaworld.

I believe common thinking is that only bettas should be kept in a 10 gallon. I think a 20 gallon, minimum.

Seaworld
I could rant and rave and scream and shout about that animal torture chamber all day.
8 metre long tank just to get it in. It's okay if it doesn't move.

I actually think 20 gallons is a bit excessive for a single orca. Save the 20 for the betta, he might eventually outgrow it.

Remember orcas like to be in pods so I would do a 55 gallon for 3 orcas.

What kind of filter would you need for that 20?

And don't forget to feed them the people that train them.
They enjoy eating them the most.
And they deserve it for torturing the poor orcas

I know I have seen them in the wild and just can not imagine putting such a big creature in a small tank compared to the ocean.

I've seen them on TV. They are my favourite animal along with Stags.
I know they tried to make it better by saying they would stop the breeding programme.
Yeah the breeding programme, not the kidnapping innocent babies and torture programme.

I’m thinking I’m going to need a sump,protein skimmer and a uv steralizer. Not to mention the live fish to feed him. Now that’s all ok but the splash he’s gonna make catching those fish is gonna soak the floor. So I’m out .

Don't forget to feed them only if they do a trick

There was a news story several years back where SeaWorld was facing some serious trouble for what they'd been claiming the orca's lifespans were. I don't remember what they claimed it was, but their orcas all die around age 14. The news story was about how an orca that had been previously tagged had been spotted, and it was like triple the max age that SeaWorld claimed they live to be. Apparently not a lot happened though because they still have orcas. I tried finding the story to share it, but no luck.

Probably got deleted.
I really hate that they lie to visitors.

I found it. I was a little rusty on the details.
