Wow thats amazing!! Thank you I did not even think of that. Sorry i had the dimensions in the original post and then completely forgot to put them in on this one. They are

8 ft wide x 6 ft tall x 2 feet deep.

That is what i was given by the person i am buying it from. does that sound about right? Also, what fish would you reccomend ? How many fish do you think think the tank can hold?

Thanks!!

does the landloard know about this? lol

For a tank that size you can fit A lot of fish. You can do schools of smaller mixed with some awesome big angles and triggers. I don't think there is a fish you couldn't put in a tank that size.

Oh wow....I would not keep a shark in a 8' x 2' tank, no matter how tall it was. they need a large footprint to roam. Take them to the public aquarium or possibly trade them for credit at the LFS.
You are right, it will be extremely hard to light a 6' deep tank for corals, but, depending on the way it's constructed, you may be able to build some sort of submersible background that you could attach corals to around half way up. You can light a 3' deep tank with minimal effort.
You could do tangs, angels, triggers, eels, look down fish..there are many.

With a High tank, I wonder how do you fill the top? because i have always noticed that most of the tank is at the bottom and the guy at the fish store said that while we believe there are top middle and bottom feeders that does not always happen.

How do you keep the top of the tank looking lively? and any idea how i can post a pic of my tank to give you guys a better sense of perspective?
