Psh @ water bill. What I want to know is, how much was all that salt? He had to dump alot of it when the tank sprung a leak, and those 13 pails in the picture are like, 90 bucks each. Also....800 lbs of sand......LOL

IN-SANE!!! I doubt he's terribly wealthy from the look of things. Wasting that kind of money on a hobby is almost inexcusable. Doesn't he have kids to put through college? Not only that, almost everyone has to move eventually. When he does, he'll have to find a like minded hobbyist to buy the home (Good luck!), Someone who doesn't mind it being there (Not likely, it will be a detriment to his property value. Maybe it can be converted to an indoor pool? ), or tear it down (What a waste!). Not to mention finding a suitable home for his pets will be a challenge.
What's the matter? No zoo or aquarium where he lives?
I don't mean to be overly critical here. He certainly did a fine job on the aquarium. It's impressive work, but there's such a thing as going overboard! That money could have been used to completely refurnished the basement into living area that his family would have enjoyed more. He could have just put a large marine tank in one of the walls.
I guess I compliment the work and dedication. It's quite impressive! I just don't see a future in it personally.
