Hi all, I was just wondering if anyone here had a 300 gallon fresh water tank? If so, what are the measurments of it? Where did you get it? Aproximate price range? What type of filter do you have in it and what do you stock in there?

LOL. Boy you have it bad :) I only wish I had a 300 gallon but I'd have to build another house to put it in.

That would be big at 96x24x30 and weight about 3600 lbs. It would need to be in a basement, or additional structure to support it!

First I would need to find out where I can get one. I would prefer a longer tank Vs. Higher. Also, I am not sure why you would need any HUGE filter system. Wouldn't the same rules apply as far as, If it is heavily planted the plants to the bulk of the filtering?

With a tank this large you would typically get larger fish a good majority that don't do well with plants, but if you did the smaller fish that work well with plants it would be interesting to see so many, plus would be neat to see the shoaling action thats hard to see in a small tank.

Let us know when you take the plunge.... I soooooooo want pictures
