I'd have something like this, but much less boring: YouTube - 50000 + 15000 Gallon Monster Tanks - MonsterFishkeepers.com
It'd be a complete Amazonian biotope. Schools of tetras and corydoras in the thousands. Giant pieces of driftwood everywhere. Fully planted (probably some really strong custom metal halides for the lighting). There would be plenty of predator species as well; the idea is that there would be so many small fish that they'd keep their populations up enough to support the predators.
I'd probably have four of these tanks total: Amazon, SE Asia, Rift Lakes and Reef. And probably lots more tanks on top of that.
15,000 gallons sounds about right for my dream tank. Amazon Biotope with Discus,Loaches,and gazillions of cardinal and rummy nose tetras and oto's .Sand substrate,logs and driftwood along with large ,smooth riverstones and plants galore. Ohh! and some wee Leprechuans in scuba gear with little vaccums as well, to clean the tank.
