Does the $65K include installing the tank in your house once you have the foundation & framing in place? Rainforest cafe does have some cool tanks and I'm guessing the tank will be viewed from all sides?

Living color is a good company. Some of their corals are realistic looking, and I think it's neat how the whole rock + coral setup is also filtration. (well behind it) 65k is pricey though.

$65k? I don't understand that at all. Nineball's 1350 gallon with the most amazing corals I have ever seen cost ~120k including all of the livestock.

At least the tanks are pretty much as good as it gets.

It probably wasn't built by living color

Unfortunately, being built by living color doesn't inherently make it worth more money if the procedure is the same. This is 300 gallons, it's not going to create a sinkhole under the house if not done exactly the same way some company does it. Specialist engineers don't need to be brought in to install a waterbed is all I'm saying.

Yes, but living color includes everything. It includes some of the best live sand imported from Fiji. It includes beautiful artificial coral. It includes a giant, powerful filter that can filter half of an Olympic sized swimming pool. Living Color makes the aquarium look as if it's apart of your house. They have beautiful granite that makes the aquarium look like a living piece of art. Living Color is quite an amazing Custom Aquarium Building Company.
Here's their website: livingcoloraquariums.com
