Ok. I'm crazy and this is years off, and my wife will probably never let me, but..
When I have a house and a nice basement with a nice concrete pad under it, I want to build a tank. A big tank. My currently under consideration dimensions are something on the scale of 3-4 foot depth, 4-5 foot height, and 10+ length. I'd run it all the way against a wall, or as much of one as I could. I'd want it at least a foot off the ground (Probably use cinder blocks to raise it up).
I figure the biggest issue would be getting 10 foot long pieces of acyrlic/glass for the walls :P
I'm not even pondering whether it would be salt or fresh water at this point, so I'll leave lighting considerations out for now.
Any ideas on the possible costs or major hardships? Besides getting walls long enough, filtration would seem like the next major concern. I need like 10,000 gph
filtration I think. The above dimensions hover somewhere between 1100 to 1300 gallon I believe.
I'd just love a huge tank to let some of the big tank busters loose in.
