If Money Was No Issue..

What is your dream aquarium? I've always dreamed of having a full wall built in cabinet feature that would allow a dozen or so tanks where everything was hidden in a back closet. I think I will actually do this one day want to build It all from scratch though. I want frog tanks and lizards too just a whole zoo of exotics

If money was not an issue, I would want my bedroom turned into a huge tank, like some type of wall tank covering a four walls. That would be so cool to sleep in there. Having four tanks in my room right now, I'm getting there.

Something I've been pondering for a little while....

I've got a 14' wall that is the divider between my living & dining rooms. The end post of the wall is a structural roof support, so that would have to stay. Knock out 12' of the wall and go with an in-wall reef 12'Lx2.5'Dx3'T (675gal) with a basement sump. I have the room for everything, but the funds needed are obviously quite extensive, and I have quite a few expensive hobbies as it is. If I wanted to seriously do this, I'd need to give something up & sell.

I would so feed my fish addiction! I would have my master bathroom and my master bedroom designed to have fish tank walls . Especially my bedroom. I sleep on the couch right now just so I can watch my fish till I dose off!
I would also have a fish sitting room....one with lots of cherry wood and huge in-wall tanks with couches situated just for comfortable viewing. Awe...wonderful!

That was our living room in college!!! We didn't have all the fancy cherry wood, of course, but the room was wall-to-wall/floor-to-ceiling tanks with bean bag chairs in the middle. Everybody in the house had a couple/few tanks they took care of..... Spent many an "altered" evening kicked back watching those fish tanks

I would get a tank big enough to hold an orca. Of course I would not add other fish in that tank. Don't think the orca would be too friendly.

You would need a whole ocean to hold an orca properly

There's a soccer player named Thierry Henry who is going to build a 5000 gallon fish tank in his house. I think it's like 4 stories tall and costs like half a million dollars!! Did anybody else read about this??
