If I made a large tank like that, I'd have it so the tank would go around the room... exception of a door way...
Then make the rest a regular living room with seating and all that.

Now my wife probably would go for that, but not one with 1500 fish and as massive as the one above.

I dunno, I've been working on designing it for later in life, once we have more money...
Basically meaning once we both are out of college, and I finish grad school (engineering/physics)

LOL I actually saw that in mexico too. IDK how many gallons the tank held, but it had multiple viewing windows. Off in the corner of one was a scuba diver with the equivalent of a giant gravel vac.

This one the bigger viewing window, there was a smaller one, and the tank still went beyond both windows.



.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk

The National Aquarium in Baltimore has some pretty impressive tanks. One is a giant hollow cylinder full of all sorts of marine fish. There's a spiral staircase inside the cylinder so you can walk down the stairs and look at the fish all around you. Very cool stuff.

That's impressive! Thanks for sharing.

Animal testing is a terrible idea; they get all nervous and give the wrong answers.

Oh, I LOVE the Baltimore State Aquarium! That place is huge and the giant hollow cylinder is amazing. BONUS: Cheesecake Factory is right next door

As much as I love cheesecake, I never hit up the Cheesecake Factory after aquarium trips. Instead, I walk over to those little mini-mall things they have at the Inner Harbor and chow down on some Five Guys burgers. YUM.

(Was that off topic or what? Haha.)

Enough to make many aquarists envy of this type of tank. Beats the Regina, Saskatchewan's Delta Hotel lobby hotel little pond with three turtles in it.
