One big system is my dream tank. 300g reef, 100g reef, and a frag tank all plumbed into one system. The 300 would be my main tank housing most of everything and the 100 would be a Volitan lionfish tank. 300 would be an in wall tank in my living room while the lionfish tank would be in my man cave.

It'll happen but it's going to take a while.

Fish store style wall setup with 10-15 tanks on shelves where I could have a bunch of different setups all in one viewing area.

I've always wondered how enjoyable those coffee table tanks can be...do you have to get down to ground level to really view it properly? If I had one i'd stock it with tosakins and other top-viewing goldfish

well you can view pretty well from a sitting position.you don't need to lay on the floor although you could. it isn't perfect but the house we live in has a totally open kitchen, dining room, living room. what that means is there is very little wall space so a traditional aquarium wouldn't work out too well since most look best up against a wall. we started to look on the internet and found a site called aquavim. they have all sorts of aquarium tables and room divider tanks. there are a few advantages with this tank. it's only about 12" deep so i can work on my plants and clean the tank without using a stool or stretching to do so. the other thing is the tank is about 56-57" long so the fish have a lot of forward swimming area which they take full advantage of when they go darting from one end of the tank to the other. also it is used as a table for when we watch t.v. no children in the house so we don't have to worry about little hands in the tank. the glass top is on risers so there's good air circulation and easy access for feeding. i've had it 3 years and i'm still very happy with the set up.
