Custom Built 300 Gallon Aquarium

Hello all,
this is just an update. I am now beginning construction on a custom built saltwater aquarium that is being manufactured by Living Color Aquariums, all the way from Florida. The tank is for my Hippo Tang, as well as for my other fish. HEY, TO ALL THE TANG POLICE, THE TANG WILL BE IN MY 20 GALLON LONG UNTIL CONSTRUCTION OF THE 300 GALLON IS COMPLETED, WHICH IS IN ANOTHER 6 MONTHS, SO DON'T ARREST ME YET, LOL. The 300 Gallon is costing me $65,000, which they include a giant filter, and fake artificial coral. The tank is made out of alyric glass, which is more flexible than regular glass.

If they're charging you $65,000 for a 300g tank, you're getting ripped off big time. I hope that was a typo, and they're charging you $6,500

Sadly with Living Color, 65k may be a possibility. their artificial corals are WAY overpriced. as are their acrylic tanks. They seem to pray on the rich for "classy" home tanks.

944$ for a 3 foot hunk of rock with a few fake corals on it. Yowza.

Today, we tore off part of the roof because it is slopped and the aquarium is going to connect with the ceiling. No, that was not a typo, it is 65,000. This includes everything, but the fish. The filter is coming in about 3 weeks. The coral came today, and shipped free. The coral looks really nice and realistic. Yes, I know 65,000 is a little overpriced, but I rather go to sleep at night, knowing that the same company that designed and built aquariums at the Rainforest cafe, is building an aquarium in my home. That's the very reason why I am having Living Color build it.

65K for a 300g tank... I clearly need to be in the business of charging people to build tanks for them. With the profit I could make from this one job, I could build 10 of the same in my house.
