I think this project awesome but not suitable for a "house". You better cancel it and make it in a warehouse or smth like that. Maintenance and security risks are not worth to have while your family is around it...

Why do say a 2000 gallon tank is not suitable for a home,many people sit next to much larger tanks at public aquariums with no fear.I am sure he has weighed the risk of the tank having a leak as do all of us that have any size tank.Most of my major spills have been caused by me doing something stupid like forgetting to turn off the water when filling.I have had tanks start leaking but they start off slow and can be fixed.

Don't quite understand what "security risk" you're talking about...I think for most of us if we had the money, space, and an agreeable spouse, we'd have a tank that big.
All male tanks are a pain. I miss all the color, but I don't miss the hassle.

I agree that the tank is not suitable for the OP's house. I think he needs to move it to mine.

Is this tank being built on the roof? Is it a concern that a tank this big may draw sharks or alligators to the house? Maybe terrorists will flock to the huge tang tank in some guys basement? I don't understand the security risk. outside of a flooded basement which I'm sure the OP is prepared for.

Anyway great project. I can't wait to see pics of the finished project

I guess the risk factor is of the tank blowing out. I remember reading some guys tank on CRC did that and shards of glass stuck into the wall? Anywho, awesome project and please update us when you get it stocked.

Hey y'all ! Just wanna update you guys with this project. It's NOT DEAD !!! :D I finally make some time to work on it again after so long. It's really coming together now !

I finally sourced out a glass supplier and decided on a laminated 2x10mm tempered glass panel few weeks ago, and guess what !? they're here today and installation is in progress. Took quite a few guys to move the big panel as it weight about 600lbs, but its finally in. we'll continue with the 2 smaller panels tomorrow.
