I've never been scuba diving but I would love to do it. It's one thing if it's in the ocean and you can go where ever you want and everything is constantly changing but an aquarium will always be the same for the most part. The only difference is what you add to it but it will all be old news with in a week or so

Realistically this tank will most likely be subbed out for routine maintenance. Hopping in once a month would be cool, swimming around seeing what's new.. hey## who put the moray eel in here.. very funny guys..who's got the hot dogs?!?!

planning on incorporating a 4000 gallon salt water aquarium into the house fo...

I wouldn't build deep I don't think. I would build a very long tank with lots of real estate for corals. My tangs care less about depth, they want running room. Just depends on what you want. Instead of a few huge fish, I would prefer hundreds of smaller ones.

Agreed! Only a school of 500 rummynose tetras, 50 angels, 75 GBR, and 1000 cardinals with 1000 Julii cories would look better IMO. Probably 500 Congo tetras too and 50 discus.

If you think the prospect of diving your own reef would get old after just a week or so then this project/system isn't for you!

I'd jump in even if I didn't really need to! I'm sitting on the other side of the glass, because I can! Really it would be awesome, so awesome you'd need to create a new word just to describe the emotion as you break the surface each time.

(Not tonight I'm swimming with the fishes)

I'd fit a springboard IF it got old. I need to work on my freestyle diving anyway, given that I have zero experience that could be an additional bonus each time.
That's just about random enough for Fishkeeping.



A chap I know regularly dons a wet suit to clean parts of his koi pond, believe me, that was the only item he never considered purchasing!

His only complaint is if he needs to address anything on a cold day, really you'd have it easy in a tropical environment (stock depending, naturally)

That would be cool it would also keep the schooling fish population under control
