If that was the case, I'd just get a beachfront property somewhere nice, and have my ridiculously huge tank plumbed directly to the ocean.

Mine were glued with like an apoxy that just pops off. It's kinda permanent unless you were to glue them back on for the Tao ttl09s

If I lived on the beach I probably wouldn't have a tank. I'd get to dive all the time and get my fix that way.

As a Midwesterner, I always dreamed of living on the beach with a reef a short swim out. Since that didn't happen, having a bit of a reef at home is next best thing.

100 yards of 1" pvc coming in, and 100 yards of 1.5" going back out. Sure you will dive, but not every day. You would also have solar tubes coming in so that you wouldn't need much in the way of lighting. Perhaps keep it on the second floor. No heater or chiller needed either.
You would dive every once in a while to catch smaller fish and let your full grown ones go...lol. Imagine that!

Sounds like heaven, let's move there now.

I have always loved the idea of solar tubes with photoreceptors that could vary the light. We talked about that a few years ago, remember?

PSRs are actually pretty cheap, just a couple of dollars. Connected to an Arduino with some controller code, it could pretty easily regulate lights. In fact, I think that people out there have already done exactly that.
