So, was meandering the Reef Central website, and stumbled across this incredible read. Save the link for a rainy day. I never did find out how huge this tank was, but it's HUGE!!! This guy built it in his very small home in Thailand, where property is extremely expensive. You can see the finished project with nice music at this link:

But for the read on a rainy day, when you are all pinned up in the house, wonderful read from beginning to end at this link:

Just incredible. I can't even get my mind around the plumbing, let alone the lighting on this thing!!

Remember Ryan (from DG) and his huge tank project? Where is he now? I'd sure like to see photos of that project. As I recall, it took up most of an interior wall.

I still watching progress on his tank to. It's still not finished, but coming along nicely as he gets the money and time to work on it. I don't think it's going to be too much longer. He's about got it all framed in and all the external parts put together. I think he has about all the plumbing done. I admire him so much for taking on such a huge project as that. Just incredible. The link is here, bookmark it so you can go back and check on his work.
