    wanna feel betterabout your addiction to CP's?

    keep in mind these are all private individuals and not public aquariums............

    5,000 gallon Arapaima Gigas Tank

    2,500 gal fresh water stingray tank

    50,000 gal private tank

    there.....................our sickness isnt near so bad is it?

    Yeah but... it's full of logs and has virtually no aquascaping. Just logs.

    To me, that's like buying the Biltmore estate and filling it with lawn furniture. I mean... priorities. Quality over quantity. Yes the size is VERY impressive but it lacks substance. I realize that with an Arapaima there's not too much you can do in the aquascaping department but come on, anyone can throw logs into an aquarium.

    Man it's only Wednesday and for the past three days all I've done is complain. I dunno what's wrong with me.

    Wow, I want one! Keeping fish would be so much more awesome if I could swim with them! Neat idea, but did you glance at the third thread? That guy's huge tank is starting to rust out after just a year or so - I can't imagine what repair and upkeep on those kinds of things cost. I could maybe justify the construction cost, if I made it into a project and built it myself, but no way would I rebuild it every few years.

    Wow. Did anyone scan through all the posts and find how much it cost to build those? That is unbelievable! Pretty interesting forum. I'm going to cruise around it a little bit, but I'm going to try and avoid thinking how cool having a big tank would be. My wife would kill me! She wants to kill me when I say I would like to start a salt-water tank when we finally settle down somewhere!

    They say when you buy a house (if you have no furniture) that you should expect to spend 30% of the house price on furniture... So, Clint, you are correct! Lawn furniture would just not do!

    JFYI with the 50,000 the guy who owns it is in a wheelchair..........i think ill give him a pass on aquascaping. besides its a tank with monster fish, not to mention a good portion in there are vegitarians. the same guy also has a couple 15,000 gal tanks

    the stingray one ran aroundd $8,500 to build IIRC, thats before pumps filters and fish......not sure a price was given on anything else
