Tidal Gardens crazy new building

Have you guys been following this?

How can he afford this? This is amazing! Is he independently wealthy? Doesn't he just sell corals online? Most LFS are barely hanging on, and this guy is building the Coral Taj Mahal.

Anyway, I've really enjoyed watching this mega build. I'm stoked to see his show tanks. I should probably buy something from him...

I read about him at a conference, I believe that Tidal Gardens is just a side-hustle.

I live a few miles from tidal gardens. Than is a super nice guy and from what he told me he got a small loan or something like that a long time ago to start tidal Gardens. I haven’t seen the new building in person yet but his current greenhouse coral farm is very impressive already. And this is his main business right now. He told me he made enough money from it to quit his other job awhile ago and do this full time. Not sure what he did in the past or for how long but he has other sources of income such as writing articles for coral magazine and YouTube obviously
