    it wouldn't be one aquarium, it would be multiple connected by clear tubes. there would be a big tank(like 75 or 100 gallons) that would have a deep end and then a shallow part and below the shallow part there would be tubes for shy fish to hide

    I would want multiple aquariums when I grow up. Some of my dream aquariums would be a 150gallon with a breeding pair of albino tiger Oscars and another one would be a 250gallon with 2 Flowerhorns and other large South American cichlids. Another would be a 125gallon tank African cichlid tank. Another would be a 500gallon cubic tank I saw at my lfs legs and put a giant gourami, 2 Asian arowanas, and with a bunch of other large peaceful fish. And lastly a 750gallon tank I also saw at my lfs, that would be a giant community tank with all kinds of fish and lots of colors!

    My dream tank is a 1000g indoor acrylic tank with 150 tosakin goldfish. It would be built like a pond being only three-ish feet tall and would rest directly on the floor so you could see the fish from the top. There would be be lily pads and water lettuce floating on the surface but other than that, the tank would be bare.

    Agree! A tank that I don't have to do anything just sit and watch and enjoy a good cup of Joe:)

    I don't care about anything else I just want to have a tank with a Zebra Pleco. I would also love to have a pond but it is so cold here during the winter and one of my friends had a snake steal 4 of her fish i doubt it will happen. :(

    I would love a low boy 50 gallon aquarium 4' x 2' x 10'' so I could create a shell dweller cichlid paradise.

    That and a chocolate gourami tank 40 gallons with one bamboo shrimp. (more achievable) <3

    Oh, and a Peacock Goby tank <3 20gallon long with a whole colony of red cherry shrimp.

    An indoor/outdoor fancy goldfish pond o-o fish can swim outside and inside through one connecting pond.

    Everything fully planted, no problem algae, and plants are super healthy and all of this miraculously does not break my wallet.

    p.s. restoring an old rusted clawfoot bathtub and turning it into a guppy tub.

    I would love to have a 500g indoor saltwater tank with various fish, shrip, sponges, or anything that I could out in with out over stocking. Then I'd love to have a large koi pond under a willow tree with a chair so I coud have a place to relax at the end of the day!
