I’m 6’1”... that should give you a reference for the size of the tank! That’s my brother and longest running fish buddy who’s helping me with the madness!! ;)

The scale of this tank just didn't show in previous photos til you both stood in it! Just wow! Really confirms my previous post about holding seminars! Good luck on pouring the concrete. Hope all goes well.
Thank you!!

Oh man, that's awesome ..... and a 'never plan to move' tank LOL.
We have a 9 year window to get our kids through school here so it's going to be fun!! Oh and worse case I rent the concrete saw for a day, cut the walls, fold them into the hole...pour the new floor over the top, pad, carpet and we are out of here!! ;)

wow just wow. I am speechless(not really)

how do you plan to maintain it?
do you plan to keep any true monster fish? like sharks, 2ft+ tangs, parrotfish,
It will have all the right filtration and I will keep up on the cleaning schedule with help from my kids (who can’t wait to swim in it) Yes, I have a collection of large tangs growing up in the holding systems!! Can’t wait to let them explore the big tank when it’s done!!
