I see no ex pence was spared for equipment wise. That skimmer is insainly huge. I really can take appreciation of your detailed layout diagrams, they have to be the best and most well thought out. This will be an amazing build. Thanks for sharing.

This has to be one of the most outstanding projects I've see so far.... Will you transfer the livestock from your previous tank to this one? Thanks for sharing and good luck (and fun) with the build!

Aaron-

You are bringing me along on your next Thailand trip right???

ChingChai-

Your choice in equipment is outstanding!! Did you happen to order that skimmer from Premium Aquatics in the US? They just received one which is why I ask.

Was the tank made locally or imported? Whats going to happen to your current system? I hope you are not taking that one down...

Also being that Amano is one of your inspirations, you have no interest in setting up a freshwater planted tank?

Very excited to watch your progress!

Erik

I don't know about everyone else, but there are few builds nowadays that excite me. I am really really pumped up about this one.

There are so many facets that I'm looking forward to, while ultimately, I can't wait to see some of those corals in this monster!

You'll have the biggest captive table in the world in this giant!


I wish I was closer to help with the grunt work!

Congrats, chingchai. This is going to be great. I can't wait to see it completed. The inspiration tanks are beautiful.

WOW... Speechless. I have never seen anything like it! That is for sure. Both of those tanks from which you drew inspiration from were gorgeous. That planted tank is the most beautiful I have ever seen. I especially like the driftwood emerging from the top (all the way to the ceiling!!). It gives the illusion of the tank never ending. I also love your design where you have the sitting area in front of the tank. If that were in my house, or business I would fall asleep in front of it nightly Great work, and incredibly inspirational in more ways than one. Keep it up...the good work, the build, and life in general. You look to be very happy, and well.

Maybe you said this and I missed it, but I did not remember your 3D drawing showing a removed piece of wall. I know based on your other tanks this is going to blow us away! Thanks for sharing it.
