Rough estimation...

Hey, i am looking at saving for around an 8ft tank, probably 8x4x4 or 8x4x3 or something like that, i'll probably use my current 75gal for a sump (Is that big enough)

But as a rough estimation how much would it be to get the tank made, a stand and just headers, pumps and such. I am guessing around 10k at least but my bank asks for what i am aiming for so they can choose the best account for me.

Any help would be awesome.

850 gallon tank... and he states it was at least $20,000. and that is if you do a lot of the work yourself. the lighting for a 4ft deep tank is going to be super expensive.

you may want to email that guy directly, and see if you can get some info from him.
