I bought several adult humpbacks from a local breeder, and bought the "Atlantic Ocean" for their enclosure. I then implemented the heating device. Martialis, you can share some of my space if you want. From what I've heard, humpbacks aren't aggresive towards blues, or vise-versa.

Watch out for  the deadly Humpack Whale Parasite. They are quite large and look like this... 30-pepe-trump.w710.h473.2x.jpg

The ones here in the Gulf of Mexico are worse, they breed by the thousands, 3 of my humpbacks died yesterday due to them. Watch out for cornstalk like hairs as the parasites have many.
