Thumbs up Is THAT a tank or what?

This is way too awesome not to share http://edition.cnn.com/2009/TRAVEL/1...hot/index.html This link should bring you to snapshot page 1 of the day - Too cool IMO

I wonder if they also do a weekly 40-50% w/c there

Pffftt I'd not be worried about weight on the floor at all.....This tank goes from below your basement way past your attic

I just find the scuba diver way too funny in there "Honey where's the diving gear I need to gravel vac"

The scale of the thing makes him/her look like an aquarium ornament.

You could play with a jet ski in there!

I expect nothing. I fear no one. I am free.
Excuse my bad and rusty english but i did not have your luck to be born or to live in a country where the main language is english.
P.S I am not rude, i just hate stupidity and act accordingly.

LOL. Perhaps hubby would be a little upset with the hole in the roof. Regardless, that thing is AWESOME!

That reminds me of one I saw in the 1980's when living in Victoria. A fellow who built tanks for a hobby (all the stores in Victoria and Vancouver sold them in those days, they were very well made) built a tank in his house. When you went in, the dining area was on the first level, then down 3-4 steps to the sunken living room. In the corner of the stairs from floor to ceiling was a circular marine tank about 6-7 feet diameter, the column of coral up the centre so the fish swam all around it within the circular tank. It went down into the basement where the mega-filtration set-up was--high lights, algae stuff, "sumps" I suppose, marine aquarists will know what all would be involved. It was quite the centrepiece of those two rooms.

The aquarist is one who must learn the ways of the biologist, the chemist, and the veterinarian. [unknown source]

Something we all need to remember: The fish you've acquired was quite happy not being owned by you, minding its own business. If you’re going to take it under your wing then you’re responsible for it. Every aspect of its life is under your control, from water quality and temperature to swimming space. [Nathan Hill in PFK]
