Outrageous Tanks!!!

I found the tanks on the web. Check it out and tell me what you think.

Your not going to like the first one because of the live stock. You may like the tank though.

#1 Wonder how big it is
#2 $1000 tank with $20 decorations.
#3 Dig the plywood base and the duct tape covering the cables.
#4 Cool tank, reminds me of the 180g in wall done on this site.
#5 Actually hate the stand, but the tank looks nice.
#6 Would like to see a better picture, lots of brown isn't pleasing.

Bala sharks are a freshwater only fish, and aren't actually sharks at all but the same family as minnows. They get a max size of 14 inches in general, 18 in extreme cases.

I was watching an MTV-type show that is similar to "Kribs", and they went to the home of a famous popular music artist, and of course there was a fabulous in-wall SW setup, with a nurse shark in a tank that was really too small for it, though the tank was likely 200-300 gal. They showed footage of the shark eating the other brightly colored tankmates, and the owner just lamented that this shark had eaten "$10,000" worth of tankmates, shaking his head, like, "kids will be kids."

My lfs has a shark in it. I'm not sure exactly what it is (I'll try to find out). I know that they would only sell it to a zoo or a person that the management would check out personally. It's about 2.5 to 3 feet long and ina 1000-1200 gal tank. Pretty cool if I do say so myself...

I'm sure the "star" you're talking about pays just about zero attention to his/her fish. More like a status symbol more than anything.

I don't think I'd want an "outrageous" tank. I'm cool with what I have (aside from total size; who wouldn't want to quadruple a 55 gal?).

I've seen the 'coffee-table' tank #3 before and quite honestly I don't think that is the way to go with live creatures. People throw books, tv remotes, papers, coffee cups and all sorts of stuff over the poor little fishes... It is like constant tapping on the glass.
When I first saw the tank I thought it was really neat but then when I think about how much junk is over my coffee table...
