What's your ultimate tank?

What's your ultimate tank if you had some extra money, just enough to get your tank? I think mine is kinda humble... I'd want a 40-55g Bowfront w/ a dark or black wood higher stand (32"+) w/ a matching canopy & LEDs for corals (I haven't gotten any yet but might some day). I mainly just wanted a saltwater tank to have clowns. I don't care about the bigger types of fish or having a lot of fish.

So I just wanna hear what other people dream of & maybe get some ideas. For saltwater (not including my FW tanks) I now have a basic 75g w/ just a base stand & power compact lights. One small upgrade I need to build now is a canopy, what a difference that would make in appearance.

Well, it would be expensive but my ultimate tank would be plumbed so that water changes could be done automatically. open one valve, empties tank, add conditioner then open the other and fills tank. Other than that I think I'd like a 6 foot tank with some awesome large driftwood pieces, heavily planted, a couple large rocks, predators like wolffish as well as a large school of fish large enough that the predators wouldn't bother them.

My dream tank is actually three tanks. Three large (180-300 gallon) in wall tanks, each plumbed for easy water changes, one a reef, one a planted tropical freshwater community, and one SA cichlid tank. All in the same room so they wrap around 3/4 walls of the living room, set at a height where they would sit right above a big wraparound couch. And of course there would be a nice fishroom behind this room for access. And of course this will never happen unless I hit the lotto jackpot, as it would really require building a custom house to pull it off correctly.

Well if I had the Money! My Dream Ultimate tank would be a Shark Tank.

It would be at least 60,000 gallons, and 50 feet long and 20 feet wide and 10 feet deep Oval.

I would have 4 or 5 black tip sharks and a few other BIG fish that can swim with them. It wouldn't be a a lot of fish, but the sharks would make up for it. :-p

Lucky! When it comes time to look at buying a house, a good fish room is going to be one of three main factors - a nice kitchen with lots of counter space, a big bathtub in the master bath, and a room with good water access and space for lots of tanks. I don't want kids, so my hobbies get to take front and center when it comes to picking a house.

I wasn't into tanks when we bought this house so I didn't plan ahead for room for the tanks... but my excuse for more tanks IS the kids!! I have two bigger tanks in our family room (1 FW & 1 SW), then had a tank in each of my 3 kids rooms AND a QT SW tank on the kitchen counter... I took a pic of our family room/kitchen area. HA! But now I'm down to just 1 tank in 1 kid's room & the 2 bigger tanks in the family room.
