That will probably be $15,000+ in live rock alone.

you will also have to take into account the sheer weight of the tank while it is empty. I worked with a 1600 gallon acrylic tank and with nothing in it, if my memory is correct, it weighed over 4000 pounds. your tank will be almost twice that size so you are looking at a total weight of around 30,000 lbs assuming 10 lbs/gal. also you have probably already looked at prices but I know that 1600 gallon tank new was around $100,000. So you are looking at a very expensive tank.

They have some one putting together a rather large tank on reef central. The tank is actually stressing a I beam. The tank your planning is probably 3x that. The crazy.
