I'm going over there in a couple weeks to get a hippo tang from him that didn't grow as fast and is getting bullied now. He removed it and put it in his QT which is a 125 haha. He said its about 5-6" so it should look nice in my 210.

Oh man it's insane I have no clue how to describe it. I know he has a skimmer that's like 4foot tall, a white plastic pool type thing full of all kinds of macro algae and rock he uses as a refugium (he claimed it was 300 gallons of water after the rocks and equipment), a chiller the size of my house air conditioning system haha, big 4" drains it looked like, and an auto top off with a 75 gallon capacity plumbed directly to an rodi 150gpd system, there was much more, his tank was on the bottom floor but his refugium and everything was in what used to be a wine cellar and it takes up almost every inch of it with extra parts supplies and what not. I was going to ask about pictures but being the first time I had been there I was kind of skeptical, he said he uses some forums but not this one. So if you know a guy in Alabama with a tank like that its probably his lol and I was mistaken on his DT size it is 550 gallons idk where I got 400 from.

Wow. I have alway wanted to have a fish room for my filtration. Sounds like he has my dream tank. I'm jealous. I'm jealous of you because you get to go see it!!!

Yeah I love when people come to my house and see my tank. It's my pride and joy. He was really cautious that I knew not to touch the acrylic as well so I'm assuming he has a significant amount of money in it and he protects it lol. I know what I have invested in my 210 and I would never be able to afford what he has haha

I agree I have put tons of money in my 250. But I love showing people.
