The unbridled joy this would bring me. Especially if it were a freebie. I would be happy and elated. This cannot be understated. I would fill it with coral and with fish. To own this tank is my sincerest wish.

Official entry: got a pitho crab. Pitho crabs are so awesome I need a tank just for pitho crabs (and coral.. and sexy shrimp... And porcelains...D'oh!)
Edit: I know I said I wanted a tank for more pitho crabs, but I've really been dreaming of a few yellow tangs (and a gem tang!) inspired by @vetteguy53081 and @ReefStache
