Sweet! It'll be quite challenging distributing the flows :)

And here I thought 700G private indoor tank at Tebet was huge enough. He also used custom filtration.

ooow yeah I've seen that tank before, more like a paludarium, but still pretty intense ! That project was actually one of my inspiration in building this big tank.

Will it be planted, too? I imagine it'll be so refreshing with some live greens.

Btw where did you buy gold occie and cyps?

awesome, so in 2-3 days it'll be full? that's gotta take forever.
All male tanks are a pain. I miss all the color, but I don't miss the hassle.

Man I just saw this thread. What an awesome project.

The question I have is how are you going to heat that amount of water or is the ambient temperature of the room such that it won't need much heating?

This huge tank is located in Jakarta, Indonesia which is a tropical country, hence heating is not necessary. The water temp in the tanks here usually is around 27 - 30 C, depending on the seasons.

Many of us who live in this warm and humid climate many times even have to lower the water temp instead by using cooling fan, air con, or chiller.

yeah the tank is in my family room with average temperature of 86 F or 30 C. so heating the tank would be such a big issue here.

anyway here's a little update. Filled to the top with no visible problems at the moment.

Enormous project, congratulations.

How do tanganyikan cichlids cope with such high temperatures - is there no oxygen defficiency?
