260K+ Gallon Tank

This was pictured in this month's issue of AFM. Just thought I'd share. I hate to even try to imagine the maintenance issues involved in this.

There have been a few posts about this over the last couple years. I've yet to see any updated pix in the last year or so.

All at a paltry cost of probably $5-$8 million or so....plus upkeep and running costs.

I doubt they do gravel vacs. Probably something like a pool filter at the bottom of the tank. Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg has a similar tank. Image how many Tetras or Guppies that you could have in that tank. That would be a nice African Cichlid tank. hmmmm.....possibilities.
