    I like the idea that he has it open to view for the public for education.

    When I was a kid, I dreamed about having a 100 gallon fish tank. I thought I could put some fish that I caught at Mile Square Park. Apparently I didn't dream big enough. Mike Wathen also had a dream as a kid to install a large fish tank, and last year, the Posey County, Indiana native did just that in his barn.
    But it wasn't just a large tank that you buy at your local fish store; it is a 7600 gallon freshwater tank with 18-20 fish and six tons of rock. His tank also houses a large snapping turtle. Wathen told Eyewitness News Evansville that since he installed the tank last year on his farm, more than 4,000 people have checked it out, including civic groups, boy scout groups, kids groups, elderly folks.
    "I'd rather watch that than prime time television," Wathen said. Wathen's tank is a behemoth of a tank at 7600 gallons, and as such, his fish are of the monster variety as well, including what looks like gars and muskies, large catfish, and even some bass, fish that know better than to get close to the snapping turtle. Wathen says he will switch the fish out next year, but didn't say what he was going to put in place of what is in his tank right now.

    only 18-20 fish as well. Some folks would see that and try to cram everything they could in it.

    Based on the article I have two questions.

    Is it 6700 gallons or 7600 gallons? both numbers are given.

    He says he's going to swap out fish next year... so what's he going to do with his old fish?

    i think one is a typo..not sure which one though, but I noticed the switch out comment as well...my first thought was a Fish Fry, since nearly everything in there is a game fish. My other thought was a private pond, local aquarium, BPS or something.
