I'd want a sea turtle. I'd make the pool slanted on the bottom. You know, on side much deeper and the other side very shallow so that I could have a little bit of a beach. Then I'd install a wave maker and create a reef... The turtles can lay eggs on the beach and then I could release all the babies into the ocean once they get a little bigger. I'll have to stock it with whatever it is that sea turtles eat so they know how to survive on their own. I'll have an underground tunnel beneath it and have little domes dispersed around the bottom of the tank (kinda like the gopher exhibits at zoos, where you get to go in the tunnels and peek out through the domes) so I can peek into the tank without having to get in the water all the time. Then I can charge people to come see the turtles!

Not a bad idea, not bad at all!

It would all depend on what was in it. A single Guppy in that amount of water wouldn't create too much change in the water chemistry. A single Great white shark (as someone mentioned in an earlier post) would definitely effect the water making not suitable for self sustanence.
But it would be nice to see a self sustained eco system in that amount of water, wouldn't it?

Well let's say we added substrate like the planting soil?
Heavily planted?

Dude, if we could afford a 10,000 gallon fish tank, there's no way we would CARE about cost!

Surprisingly I just figured that a 10000G tank could measure out to 20'L x 8 1/2'W x 8'H. I thought it would be bigger.
