DSPS tank from Thailand (1000 gallon+)

Everyone must have his own dream and so have I.
This tank's project is what I try to make my dream comes true.
But because of big money involve and also time and effort I have to sacrifice for it.
That's why I think it over and over for more than two years.

However, what the heck, life is too short to drink bad wine. Right?
Let's do it!

These two tanks are my inspiration:

- Tank of Mr. Takashi Amano from Japan (owner of ADA)






- Tank of Mr. Chavalit Srinont from Thailand (my friend from Siamreefclub)

Thanks. Mark.
I used to limit the height at 30".
But when I saw my friend's tank, it is totally amazing just like what you said.
