Biggest home aquarium?

Aside from public aquariums and the guy in oregon (http://www.oregonreef.com). Whats the biggest reef / fish tank you have seen?

There is a roumor that somewhere in the fort lauderdale area someone has a saltwater pond in their back yard.
I would love to see pictures of that.

I have too heard of this s/w pond legend from my father-in-law who lives in Florida.
Sounds awesome!

that oregon reef is beyond ridiculous...
that thing is insane, the amount of planning that went into it I don't think even if I had an unlimited amount of money I'd be able to plan it out as nicely as that one is.

Where I get my water, I always meet new people. One day while I was filling up my 5G buckets a guy pulled up in a Pick-Up with one of those Watertanks that are made to be burried on the back. He was getting at least 100G and while he was filling it up he told me about his 500G (I think it was 500) tank. He told me that it is part of the living room wall and you can also watch fishis while sitting on the patio.
Havent seen it but why else would you get 100G of SW?

Bang's and the guy with the 800gal cube are the biggest "in home" that I have seen.

Hey bang! long time no see!

Our tank crashed about 7 months ago after the movers screwed up the move...we just got it back in shape last weekend. So were going to start rebuilding. Good to be back in the hobby.
