Caleb, there's a 586 gallon tank for $350 on my local craigslist. 10 foot 10 inches long, 36" deep and 30.5" tall...Has a cracked glass pane on the bottom, but I have a good friend who just happens to be project manager at Holston Glass Co. who could likely have me a replacement panel made cheaply ^_^

And how are you going to move that tank?

Zebras are too expensive and stay too small. $400-500 for a 3" fish isn't something I would consider. L-18 Gold Nuggets can be had for $50 on liveaquaria

Now you just need to convince the spouse and let me come see it

My trick for convincing my fiance we need a bigger tank is telling her how many angelfish we could put in it, lol. Probably won't work for a RTC tank.

Haha it doesn't take much to convince her. Just have to let her pick out a few inhabitants and she's down for it. Sadly its too big. You're talking close to 2.5 tons of water alone. Not to mention tank weight along with substrate, stand, decor, etc. Defiantly something I would want sitting on concrete and not my living room floor

On the bright side, if I need that many angels I could probably convince Andy Sager to send me them from his hatchery! 100 angelfish is enough to be wholesale lol.

She has actually gotten over Angels, not sure what happened with that. She's really into Blood Parrots right now for some reason but won't pull the trigger to buy one. She was totally down for me buying the RTC, but the biggest tank I have laterally is my 55. She wants a fishroom when we buy a house too. She's a keeper
