World Famous Coral!!! ~AO
Oh man, and HEAVY!!! This tank is literally built like, well, a TANK! Overkill all the way.... I'll post another pic later with something in the tank to show a scale comparison. When I got home last night I sat and stared at it in my basement for atleast an hour! I've known about this tank in the area since 2001 (set up for 3yrs) and kept my ears open for when it came available. One of our clients purchased it used, when it DID come available, with plans to set it up but they decided not too, so we snatched it up! I would like to set it up down in the basement but in reality I'm literally never home and I would get more use out of a big tank at the shop, my real home....Holy Cow Chuck! That thing is massive!
LOL, nah, we're closed on Mondays, but we are open tomorrow and do have one in stock though. He is a little on the small side so he may not eat'm until he gets larger. Can you not entice him out with food and catch'em?Chuck you aren't going to be open today are you? LOL i need a Flame Hawkfish to take care of this coral banded shrimp...
That was our thinking as well and we had two different glass companies come out and tell us that the way everything is outfitted (old storefront) the glass store front would have to be slide back, into the store, in one piece. If we did that, we would be able to get the tank in but then they would be able to slide the front back in place since this huge tank would be in the way. The way the outside is built, the glass front won't slide out the front, without some serious building damage. We may still put in the double doors, as I'm brainstorming on how to get my landlord to absorb the initial expense, because it's not everyday you come across a tank with these dimensions, unless you buy a new one and even at a wholesale price (could buy a new car) we would never be able to afford it (come on Powerball). I've always LOVED really tall tanks, excluding lighting them, because IMO they make better displays as long as you have the depth/width to go along with them.That is an awesome tank! I had seen in another thread about not being able to fit it in the doors of your shop. Thats a bummer. Was wondering though, do you have a glass store front? If so you could have someone come out and remove a pain in order to get it in and it would be much cheaper than new doors. Just thinking of what a great draw that would be for business. Just a thought.
