If You Won The Lottery?!

So, say you got a huge payoff from the lottery. We're talking a pot of 250 million dollars.
How much and in what way would you spend it on fishkeeping?
And... GO!

If that's $250million AFTER the government is done taking half of it..

I would have a basement as one big fish room with lots of tanks and one wall that's a massive like 1000 gallon tank. Have them all plumbed for automatic water changes and top off.
I would also take like a big 300g tank and section it off with tank dividers for like 20 bettas in the middle of the room.

Before all that though I'd go to a financial advisor. Seen too many lottery winners end up broke.

Personally that would take the fun out of fish keeping for me.

I'd build one huge room that is 50x50 and have a tank custom built in to the walls and watch fish swim around the room. I'd keep at least 300 corydoras, 50 kuhli loaches, 3 clown plecos, a few african butterfly fish, and probably a bunch of other active fish and it would be very heavily planted.

I would def need a full time employee for my aquariums

My fav part is the planning not all the maintenance

I would only want a cleaning staff if I had a massive let's say 100,000g tank! because that's just too much for one man!

Guys, you can buy 60 acres of Peruvian land on the Amazon River for 12000 dollars... I'd get that!

I would get a shallow 1000 gal tank with a square footprint for an Arowana, some Discus, and some Senegal Bichir. Maybe some Severum or Festivum... Or a huge gibbiceps. I would also set up a drip system and save some for college. I'd save and give the rest to my parents and grandparents so they can have a house with a koi pond in the middle hahaha
