a good 600 lbs of live sand which isnt cheap either and the halides are very expensive itself. electricity expenses alone will be extreme. running lights, a massive protien skimmer, powerheads and so on adds up on the bill very fast.
well if he can afford to buy a tank that big. then im assuming he can afford the contents :P

But still with something that big , you might get overworked from all the maintenance
. Why not just buy a car. cause in the end its going to cost as much as a car. ( a very nice one at that).

if he is rich ill gladly Offer to do all the work with setting it up/cleaning it/picking out your fish!

Ill do it for the cost of living in your Mansion

This is what becomes a problem for those who wish to own such marine creatures that either grows to large, or are extremely aggressive. Within saying it so simple as what darrelljonesdc putting it, makes it difficult for the idea on owning such an animal that most who ever kept this creature, not still owns it today. If the person of this thread still will have this eel, know this. If you do all the best in keeping this animal in water quality and a variety/nutritional diet, it will one day break out of this tank, real easy like. And if not very healthy, it will linger in your tank, suffering for a long period of time, then die. Sure, eels are hardy, but many in this, not do all the very best they should, and in not doing their best, their eels reaches the point of their demise.

If you now have this animal, you would be wise to return it to your LFS

Absolutely not. With a Moray i would go with a 150 gallon at the minimum. You would be making a huge mistake to put that large of an eel in a 50 gallon tank.
