I am aware of the distortion, I just think that it is a small price to pay for such a beautiful piece of nature, and a hex tank would not go well with the design of the house. These two cylinders are going to appear to be holding up the balcony overlooking the living room, as if they are a structural part of the house.

I was going to have a column of rocks running up the center of the cylinders, and they would be slightly flared out at the bottom, so it would end up looking kind of like a really tall, skinny cone of rocks. That way I can hide the plumbing and whatnot in the center of the tank!

I am thinking about the Super Reef Octopus 8000 with a Bubble Blaster 10000 pump.

it's time to call those morons from Tanked(although their tanks look off the chart). maybe they will do it for free if you think big and create enough drama to be feature on their show

Just don't let them stock it for you.

I think if you get on the show, Discovery pays for the tank, but you pay for the fish. I think...

you have to pay for the fish? what i have heard is that everything is free, but obviously i could be wrong. but anyhow, even getting the fish tank setup for free is a great deal.

Hence the "I think" part I suppose the only way to know would be to contact Discovery to try to be cast. A residential job like this, 2 cylinders, would be hard for them to refuse, I'm betting.
