This is going to be amazing. I love that you want small fish in large schools. That will be a lot of fish though. Might want to look into breeding them yourself lol.

I thought I'd seen the craziest big tank when a buddy of mine recently bought a 335g, but this is the mother of all planted tanks. What are your plans for water changes, ferts, plants, co2?

I have a 96" x 48" x 30" tall acrylic aquarium.

It has an overflow and I will be using a 150 gallon rubbermaid trough for my sump.

I'll post a couple of pics of this thing in my living room,

What do you think??!



I didn't know Mr. Amano lived in NC . Very awesome tank and setup. That is going to be utopia for the future fish

I will prolly do around a 50 gallon change a week.
Not sure about ferts, plants, or co2 at this point... That is what you guys are for!


Filtration will be a diy wet dry inside sump for biological, filter socks for mechanical, and carbon only when needed through a nextreef media reactor. I'll use scrubbies, and eheim pro bio media for biological surface area. I've got some ideas
