What is your dream tank?

size?.
stock?

I think about this all the time! if money, space, and time weren't an issue!

I agree with sniperfreak, I have always wanted to do a large native fish only tank. I guess it will only be a dream.

I would love a 200-300 gallon for my frontosas but my dream would be a custom built 200-300 gallon that's 12-18" tall, 2' deep and at least 6' long. I want it to be drilled on each end with one end being an overflow running into a sump and chiller then back in the other end. this would be a cold water river aquascaped with gravel, rocks and some driftwood. Probably have some live plants that could tolerate the cold water and would stock it with trout.

I'd like to have a 125 gal, but I'm not sure what stock I would put in it. I know it would be heavily planted with driftwood. Knowing me I'd put more discus in it, those are my favorite xP

At the moment the dream is a tank large enough for an Oscar, common pleco and a school of large silver dollars. (boring to some but not me!) But we are renting and a tank that size won't fit!
