currently I only have a 55 gallon...I am still a student and I may try to get a tank this big like 10 years from now

I was looking at this website because recently ive been dreaming about a 1000 gallon fish tank in my home


is this seriously overpriced? I was wondering what average prices were for a similar set up

has anyone done a diy project this big and know how much they spent?

I can't seem to find a used 500+ fish tanks anywhere

Wow!,that's a big tank.I have not done a diy project with anything that big.This is my opinion but I think it would be risky making a tank that big.So many things would probably go wrong for me but if you have experience with making aquariums then it's worth a shot.That seems like an ok price for an acrylic tank that big.I have seen some acrylic tanks that are only 200-300 gallons go for $3,000.I would try to find some other web sites that have tanks that big and compare prices.Are you planning to keep saltwater fish?

I think the best way to do a tank that big is to have only one viewing side.

Good morning,

I think the price is good for an acrylic tank that large. However, if you have to have it shipped I might think twice. (good price if it includes the stand)

I saw a tank on that site that was priced at 47,000.00+.

as to the 1000 g tank. Think about doing a 70% water change for that thing with a 5 gallon bucket. OH MAN!

LOL We'll let Shawnie and Lucy clean it with their turkey basters.

Oops, I might as well go to time out before they see this!

ok, 1000 gallons!

On ebay, in my city there was a 12ft x 6ft x 2ft tank going for a $1000 to buy!

I wanted it, but my room isn't even physically big enough to get it in there! lolz
