    What an incredibly huge tank! I wonder what they were keeping in it. from the supplies, I'm guessing reptiles. Aside from how to get it home.. just imagine all the interesting things that could be done with a tank that size.

    WoOoOoOoW! Just think of the possibilities. If that doesn't get you excited I don't know what will. I need to hit the lottery

    Ooh... Looks like a nice tank. I just can't imagine how much that would weigh when filled.

    looks more like a reef tank to me. would be perfect for corals at least. one of my lfs here has the same thing, just wider that 2' but definitely 7-8'

    You can do a coral frag tank, an estuary, a beach, river bank, mangrove swamp, wonderful possibilities. Too many tall and long tanks in the market and it's rare to see a shallow, long, and wide tank like this. Frag tanks are too square-ish. It's a bargain for only $300 and it comes with a free stand.

    That is so cool! They must be using one heck of a monster overflow and pump system. I imagined doing something like that but with a lot less flow. But this is awesome and really simulates a natural river brook!

    But is this stand solid enough to hold it if it were filled with water? And if it was custom built for snakes, can one be sure that it won't bulge out too much down the length from the pressure of all the water? I have some of that going on with a couple of 10 gallons...

    I'm betting it can hold the water since it's shallow and wide for better weight distribution.
