    Meh,. OK it's big and it looks good. I'd have been a lot more surprised if it was fresh water

    Impressive

    I wish I had the resources and time to invest in setting up a aquarium like that
    If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.

    that's not the biggest private one in North America by far.

    There are a fair few bigger on Monster fish keepers forum.

    My favourite being the 50,000 gallon shark tank in a guys basement.
    Used to try and keep track of my fish here.....

    Ran out of room and time!!!

    Instead I'll tell you the best piece of fishkeeping equipment ever....... Algae Scrubber :)

    What surprised me about it is that it seemed to be very reasonably stocked with 160 fish for 20,000 gallons.

    That was my thought as well. Not sure if we're thinking of the exact same one or not but here's a link:

    You know when the first picture is of a backhoe that it's going to be a big build.

    I'm fairly certain I've seen this guy on TV before. Not sure where, though. Maybe it was a magazine... I can't remember now. lol

    That Monster Fish keeper guy's tank is pretty awesome/ridiculous. I dig it. However, I don't think that's in his "living quarters". It looks uncomfortable, unlike the featured tank in the OP, which looks more relaxing... it's actually IN his house, not just on the side, where it looks like you can walk through, but not relax? Maybe there are more pictures I'm not seeing.

    When in doubt, ask yourself... W.W.L.S (What would Lee Say)?

    yeah I can see a distinction between "aquarium inside your house" and "aquarium build into the outside of your house". The article OP linked says this guy's tank is the " largest privately owned tank of its kind in North America". Whatever that means.

    I agree with Dutchie, would have been nicer if it was a freshwater setup that size. Impressive, nonetheless.
    When in d0ubt read it until it makes sense, then read it again!
