Are you married? Maybe you can trade for your wife's car? If that won't cover it do you REALLY need a couch, TV, dressers, etc...?

I don't call getting rid of the other material possessions a sacrifice. Maybe the wife but still not 100% sure on that! :D

It is too much for what it is......maybe with the lights, filtration, etc....but no way for just the acrylic....

WOW, that is a HUGE tank! Not sure I'd know what to do with such a large tank. Sharks maybe?

Impressive. Why have a fish tank when you can have an entire Rift Lake in your house! I'm sure my floor would support the weight. :thumb:
