reading through that gave me a headache. I don't want to see the bill for all that. Much more than I'll ever make.

Tanks like this will obviously get people looking, but it should be built first to care for fish. People's interest is a nice bonus.
I have what I have because I need it, not because I want people to drool or become jealous, many people have said "ooh I'm jealous of your fish house" really that is a horrible feeling for me. To inspire jealousy, not the goal I had in mind!
Make sure you build it for the right reasons!

Must post pictures though, no pics, no way. (That's Internet Law)
(Pics of your current tanks would be encouraging, is there a thread or link?)

Mfk is the place to go for things like this, it's a common occurrence, also, the professional builders will know the sheet specs! (What we say doesn't matter, trust them, if they get it wrong, they are liable!)

I'm not being negative but I agree with fish dude, loads of people want to!
Very few do, mainly because it's not a simple job.
I'm guessing something like a 6 figure bank balance must be in place, and that must be money you can afford to waste! Even if you can drive a digger and knock up muck it will still be expensive!

I wouldn't be jealous, these things (the ones that make it) are really inspirational. So good luck!

Here we go again... Do you even realize how many problems arise filtration, heating, cleaning, water changes. What about when a leak springs? Even if one built something this crazy you still have to maintain it...
