Upgrade your fantasy....and 800 gallon bow would be barely large enough for a single mature RTC.

Mine would be a pressurised system that I could keep Vampyroteuthis infernalis in.

2,000 gal African Cichlid tank. I'm not really into saltwater, don't like the look of it so I would stick with freshwater.

I've designed a whole house, and I've just now started sketching it out. I have some big dreams. Way beyond feasible, and would probably cost more than I'd ever see in my life time.

The master bedroom would have a floor-to-ceiling tank as the wall, thousands of gallons. Probably an Amazonian tank, with some big swords, big plecos, big schools of fish. At night, moonlights would make it the best nightlight ever.
Off the master bedroom, there are his and hers bathrooms. The man's bathroom would have a big malawian tank set into the wall, opposite from the mirror so you can see them while you get ready. The woman's bathroom would have a tall tank on each side of the vanity with maybe some vals running up through them and some fancy fish, like angels.
The formal living room would have high ceilings and another large tank over the mantel, with some big, impressive arowana specimens.
And of course, a water garden outside!

Now, if I were to dream about something actually possible, I wouldn't even know where to start. There's just too much I want.
I just want my planted tanks to be perfect. Is that so much to ask?

55g: (Mostly) African riverine species: Alestes Chaperi, breeding pair of Kribs, and rhino pleco
30g: Newly established reef tank
10g: Planted but fishless
5g: Unplanted with various snail species
2.5g: Heavily planted with betta.

The 50,000 gal tank I saw on another site would be my dream tank, except I would keep a ton of big, mean cichlids in it like managuense and peacock cichlids.

1000 gallon square tank, aquascaped with natural river rock and reeds, with lots of bronze bristol comets. I have this in a 20 gallon with one bronze bristol. I'd be afraid of the glass breaking though.
Anybody who's seen the personality of fish has had their minds and hearts opened to a whole new world.

I want ~2000 gallon (16' long x 3' wide x 6' tall) river setup! I am thinking freshwater for this, lots of plants and driftwood, with an actual currents (variable speeds), and tidal movements, rain/storms, and tons of fish!

wow, these are all awsome, keep them coming! Also, i have another dream tank to add to my list. I would like a 2000 gal FW tank, densly planted, with a bunch of neon tetras, maybe like 1500 neon tetras and a few other types of fish, i dont know what. I have also always wanted to keep oscars, so I would also want a multi-story tank that is like 3 stories high. About 10'x15'x60'(aprox) The top for feeding and cleaning and stuff would only be accessable from my attic, the tank would extend down and take up my bedroom, which has the measurments for length and width in my size wanted. It would take up my whole room, and i would replace my walls with re-enforced glass, it would extend down into my living room, with a vewing area there, then it would go into my basement, with a large veiwing area there. I would keep something like oscars and Pacu in this tank. It would have a bubble wall at the back , which would bubble all the way up to the surface which would be in my attic. I would have very tall growing plants that would grow a span of over 60'(if there are any) I would have albino and regular tiger oscars, (i am getting carried away. Anyway, keep the dreams coming.
