I would love to do a large native (Minnesota) biotope with fathead minnows, longnose dace, johnny darters, brook sticklebacks and central mudminnows (which all live in the creek near my house).

Funny story, the hospital I work in decided to get rid of the custom approx 1300 gallon aquarium they had. I almost took it but couldn't figure out a way to transport it home, tank was 12 feet long. Also it would have cost a fortune in water bills to maintain
Were they giving it away for free?

Probably some true monsters (ex: aropima, RTC’s, MBU puffer, Wels catfish, etc.) BTW just joking about the Wels. If you have never heard of them look them up I don’t think they would even work in that big of a tank lol. Maybe one of them alone, I would have to research.
I'd do an octopus tank.

Definitely have to go with a redtail catfish and then do research on top water and mid water schooling fish from the same native rivers and choose from there what I wanted!

a HUGE school of either neon tetras or cardinals, a huge school of ember tetras and a huge school of corydoras. Fully planted with black substrate.
or a major grouping of yellow labs and other cichlids with rock work and black gravel they look so bright against the black substrate.
The maintenance would be killer thou.

I’d stock it with five guppies, 10 assorted snails, some goldfish, gouramis, and shrimp. Then I’d let the magic happen.

Wow, that's so big and well-designed it doesn't even look like a tank! Is it even a tank, or just underwater shots of a river?

if YOU could have a 1000 gallon aquarium and money, time, food, etc wasn't a problem, what would you get and why? I would do one largemouth bass and one peacock bass and one arowana and maybe a jaguar cichlid. I'm interested to see all of the answers to this.
10000 rcs and 600 rummy nose tetras

A:
GOLDFISH. OH MY GOSH YAAAAS. A truckload of goldfish.
Two of each, butterfly telescope, pearlscale, ranchu, oranda, tosakin, and I would just get a few at first then breed the ones of the same breeds and keep some of the babies. But since I only got two of each (one male one female) I could grow out a bunch of fry and make money off of huge young goldfish. Also I would have soooo many plants, cabomba, rotala, money and penny wort, anubias, Amazon sword... and also water lilies, probably some Dauben or Colorata. Go totally filter free completely filtered by plants.

B: Cuttlefish. I adore them but can't come close to affording them. I love me some cuttlefish they are SO CUTE.

A 10 thousand gallon? I don't even know but I know for sure I would be doing one of those cheesy "spin the wheel whatever it lands on I buy" videos from youtube.

1,000g? Probably a reef setup.

10,000g? A section of the Amazon River transplanted into the world's longest tank.

That is epic.

World's longest tank housed in a private residence then

Good luck fitting that in your living room. I also hope that you are able to do tank maintenance and lets hope you don't go broke doing water changes, or filling it up for that matter.

I figure in a world where I have a 10,000g tank money isn't much of an issue. And the house would be designed and built around the tank of course!

Well you are really going to depend on the definition of "in" or your tank has to be more than 50 meters long.

First Options: Calico bass and california sheephead. I scuba dive with these fellas in Southern California and they're the sweetest, friendliest, cutest fish ever. They love people and interact with you while you're diving. I love them. If we're fantasizing here, I'd want to keep one of each as a pet and bring them scuba diving with me, then bring them home when we're done diving.

I kid you not, these fish will follow you and interact with you for as long as you'll give them time.

Tropical Option: French angelfish, porcupine puffer, and orange spot tuskfish. I love these fish and it would be amazing to have my own. The reality is I'll never keep a tank larger than a 180 gallon so I'll keep enjoying these fish when I'm scuba diving and not in an aquarium.
