Dream Tanks(i know this still relates to aquaria)

Hi,
I am sorry, i know this post still relates to aquaria, i just wanted to post this somewhere where everyone could see.

I think it would be neat if everyone wrote about their DREAM AQUARIUM.
how many gallons?
what fish?
how many fish?
what type of tank?(bowfront, hexagonal...)

I know that my tank of choice would be a 800+ bowfront with some red tailed catfish.

What aquarium to you fantasize about? Tell about it.

Dont even take into account the cost of these things, just tell about that tank that you would love to have.

I would have two main ones.
i would have a 300-500g tank with my discus. and plus what fish i have now with more room.
i would add maybe another ten discus. differnt kinds like 2 of each of all my dream discus that i prolly will never be able to get or even afford. or even more discus.
i wouldnt want it much bigger it would be to much work and would just be to big for discus.
And i would get a 300 gallon oscar tank with a few different kinds. and just uhh. (drooling over here by dreaming of my tanks)

i wouldnt mind having a room in the basement. with different tanks with different species. like maybe a small sw with dory and nemo's. and then maybe some puffer kind of fish. and seahorses and starfish.
and then maybe some more different kinds of cichlid tanks.
i dont know i really like the cichlid species.

I have small dreams...lol.

I want around a 300g freshy tank with discus and tetras...and alot of my fish now.

And I want a 200-300g salty tank.

I'm sure if I had tanks this big though, I'd want bigger ones...but for now, those are my dreams (pretty unrealistic though).

My realistic dream tanks, or goals are a 125g community tank, a 75g African tank and a 75g Discus tank...maybe one day i can have those.

I'd like an outdoor affair, with two sides terraced for planting and decor, and a deep swimming lane running down the middle, with deep and shallow ends for normal swimming.

Mine would be 3 300+ gallon LONG tanks in their own dedicated room. They would be along the outer walls and a huge U shaped couch in the middle of the room. Maybe 1 could be a SW but the other two would have to be dutch style planted tanks.

Now all I have to do is hit the lottery.
