My 120 gal ran me with everything over $4,000. I did a calculation and your tank will be over 1100 gal. That is a huge tank. (Wish I had one) I wouldn't even want to know how much that would cost(Yes I do) I knew a guy that had atleast a 600gal and it cost him over $1800 just for the frieght to deliver. He didn't discuse how much the tank (glass only) cost. You would have to get it made. Is it going to be acrylic or glass? As for the live rock will cost tons. Along with the skimmer, sump, calcuim reactors, water changes, salt, I could go on and on. As for the losing my mind part no your not. Do I think thats to much for a house, yes. As for the paying to do the maintence, that is the best part of a tank. I never did believe that anyone who pays to have the maintence done, is wasting money. My meaning behind that is, its fun and you can do it all yourself. Good luck on the setup, and take pics when its done. Also I would build a room in the basement (if you have one) for all the filtration devices. Or have a room built next to the tank.
