The mr saltwater tank was 100,000. He is a member of our local reef club but that tank is in cali, where vivd is located. The one mr x posted is really sweet and has more viewing space. Both are probably owned by people who don't care about money. That vivid tank brought all the water from ocean and had it trucked in. How much did that cost? And I think my biocube 29 is expensive to keep up and keep full of coral.

It is not that these people don't care about money,they earned or inherited it and are passionate about our hobby.Like I said in a previous post,if I could I would build sea world in my backyard.
I did warn everyone at the beginning.LOL

20000 please....he has 5000 in skimmers alone. That setup is in the 100,000 range
