  1. Instead of building the tank for frank or beans he should make it salt water and use the last 2 120's for frank and beans. A cool custom background on the tall tank made so he can fill the back with coral going up the wall would be awesome

  2. I have a small tank that is similar dimensions square and tall, it looks great but maintenance and stocking is very difficult, I have even given up using the bottom 10cm and instead have a massive sponge filter as the base. I would like to see yours as a planted tank but 4 ft deep will be very difficult to aquascape. I don't want to discourage you but you need to be smart about it and with so many other tanks ease of maintenance should be priority. Maybe do a huge colony of shrimp and nano fish. Keep up the great work

  3. But would a Flowerhorn really thrive in a tank like that? I don't believe it wold utilize the depth and it would have no place to swim.

  4. Stock the tank with tiny moon jellyfish (Aurelia aurita) I think that would look really cool but I don’t really know the care for jellyfish and how hard they are to care for.

  5. NY! Cool! Little too far to drive for me this time, but are you planning on the next Aquatic Experience in Oct 2018? It is just across the river from NYC. 🙂 I will definitely be haunting the Youtube booth if there is one.

  6. Love that the rainbow were following you around in this video. I think for the tall aquarium small tropical fish, with a planted background, and some branches that fish could swim through would be amazing.
