Just Curious to know what people would do tank wise given the following "limitations" ...

1. You can only have ONE (1) tank
2. Money is NO OBJECT (I.e., some rich guy's footing the bill)

Given those two stipulations, what would you do?

I think I'd have to go w/ a huge reef tank, we're talking 500+ gallons... custom acrylic, built into the wall, super tank... does your taxes, vacums the house, etc...

I would have a 120 gallon tank with several species of Discus, Cardinal Tetras, maybe some Angels, and some Corys.

My dream setup would have to be a 300 to 400 gallon acrylic reef tank with the best filter, skimmer, powerhead, and lights money could buy. Exotic and rare corals.

Not if I get there first, buddy.

Seriously, though. I'd like a whopper planted, 400 or 500, a tank so big I would have to build an addition and could squeeze a solitary chair in the room it was housed in. I'd fill it with Altums and apistos. Tons of plant cover and lumber (driftwood pieces as large as I am).

Any of you know Cabellas? Or is that just midwest thing? I want a HUGE tank like that, one that would be roughly the size of my living room. Hey, I don't need a t.v.!
And I would create a native Missouri scheme, with carps and basses and some big catfishes. Maybe even a couple turtles.

Are you talking about the one in Michigan, real close to the border of Ohio? I love the tank they have there. It would be great to have one of those, except with tropical fish, probably the big New World cichlids.

I mean Cabella's Sporting Goods.
We have a Cabella's near where I live (actually, I think it's in Kansas), anyway, I'm up by KCMO. It has two HUGE tanks, acryllic, curved, built into the walls from ceiling to floor. They're about 15' inside and I couldn't even begin to calculate the gallons. They've got enormous fully grown bass and catfish and turtles, I can't even remember everything. They also have an indoor koi pond that's twice the size of my living room. I'm not into hunting and sporting or that sort of thing, but I could spend hours in front of those aquariums!
