@ the 50k gal tank
7 days to fill? jeezuz
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.
you probably need a new plant
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.

I got little tiny bug feet / I don't really know what bugs eat /
Don't want no one steppin' on me / Now I'm sympathizin' with fleas /

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!

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
That's it? I was expecting 100000 + or something. I mean my neighbors garage was like a little less than $100000
must be some garage.........my FIL put one up for $10,000 hell my house only cost me $64,000
Wow....I never thought about people building huge tanks like that in their homes. It's a really neat idea. I can't even imagine the maintenance on something like that.
I think I'm going to show this to my husband....to prove to him that I'm not crazy...and my hobbies could be much worse.
