9,000gal reef build

So, i was at the state fair. They had a 9000 gallon shark tnk and immediatly my wheels were turning! I thought to myself, "man, that would be amazing in between my livingroom and familyroom!" which is currently divided by a wall. It could be built in nd plummed from the basement. Now. To convince the wife, or just start on the project? I think the latter!

I like the way you guys think! She would be cool with it as long as it turned nice and didnt look like a mess. Big $$$$ though!

My motto is, to achieve happiness stay single. Back to the topic. What are you thinking about adding? I would have like mushroom corals, bubble corals, rice coral, gorgonia, and acroporas. Then for fish I would have a flame angel, some damsel fish, gobies, tangs, and the best one, a scott's fairy wrasse. Or any fairy wrasse for that matter.

If you have the money for a 9000 gal tank then ball up and who cares what your wife thinks! My wife didn't even want me to have a tank but I just did it.
