3' tall, by 6' wide, and about 18 - 22' long.
Using 22" as the height...that tank would be 246 gallons and some change. This is another illustration of why it is not a good idea to get advice for someone else, you don't know the details, and one of my favorite quotes is...

"God is in the details"

The difference between 2500g and 246g is tremendous and has a tremendous impact on what you can keep as well as what you can keep together.

no seriously this question is quite unrealistic
I would have to agree with this statement, as you posted it, that would be the largest privately owned aquarium that I was aware of, besides possibly Jansen's The pharmacutical guy in Germany. Biggest I've read about otherwise is 2000.

im happy that some one either has the room for such a tank but to ask such a question either ya looking for attention or your very lonely or are dreaming about such a tank !!
I can see where you would get insulted, but to be honest, your asking for some kid that is on vacation for 3 weeks and you cannot give us the info to advise. It's not your tank, he needs to do the research not you, so I can see where someone might get the impression quoted above.

Let's keep in mind when people ask for advise, if you want to give it, go ahead, if not...don't, but don't make it personal.

big tank...

I think I agree with every party... anyway, reefrunner, I think youu read her mesurements wrong. When she said 6 feet wide, it may mean deep, and the length is 18-22', that is FEET, as far as I read it... though I think these are just guesstimates... anyway...
How about some Cayman? Those would be cool. Personally if I had a tank that big in my house I'd probably raise fish to eat... then again I would like some fish I could swim with... If I did a SW setup I would just put the live rock along the back side so I could still easily get in to swim around... It would be fun to snorkel in a tank like that. i would probably get something like the science package I mentioned in the lounge. They had sea stars, urchins, crabs,well, all sorts of things you'd find in a tidal pool... That would be cool... your own personal tidal pool...

I'd rather live on a boat in the keys (or somewhere) than own/maintain a 2500 gal tank... prolly cheaper to

Send a message via ICQ to fishfreek Send a message via AIM to fishfreek Send a message via MSN to fishfreek Send a message via Yahoo to fishfreek
A tank thats 18' long, 6' wide and 3' tall would be just above 2400 gal.

I belive that this member is just very excited for her friend. When your friend retuns from FL please encourage them to join as I have to agree that advice via a 3ed party is fairly difficult. I have seen it attempted many times before on this site and other sites and every time it never ends up working as it often delays the help that might be very much needed at the time.
