Wow imagine the sump size needed for a reef tank this big!? And the protein skimmer!? Eeeeek! But of it were saltwater I would do a full Great Barrier Reef tank with only natives to the reef. Or I'd do the sea turtle idea where they can breed. But if it was freshwater i would definitely do a heavily planted discus/neon tetra tank. I'd want to make it fully natural with the same light cycle and heating as their natural land so they breed prolifically. I'd also stock either one with tons of food crustaceans/fish so other than biyearly-yearly water changes I would have to do nothing other than look and scuba dive. Ahhhhh now I'm daydreaming!

Actually my dream "tank" is a pond... I want one side of my basement to be a big piece of glass with a pond on the other side. Better then TV.

I'd have -
110 discus
60 angelfish
250 neons
250 rummynose
30 pairs of GBR
250 sterbai cories
300 marbled hatchets

Would that be overstocked?

At that scale I don't even know hahahahaha!! But that's a great idea. With outside access and a warm climate I bet you could make it completely self-sustainable. Who knows let's try it and see! yeah... I wish.
