    I think this tank looks alot like a tank that was featured in volume one of sprung and delbeek's books (published in 1994). I'm going to check it out when I get home...

    Here is a part of the article concerning the size;

    The display tank holds 4,200 liters (1,110 US Gallons). It has an overflow box containing three 40 mm (1.6) pipes, all leading to a decanter. This decanter was engineered following the concepts detailed in an article (1) by Joffrey Dislaire. Its volume and length was computed from the overflow characteristics so that sediments would be allowed to settle on the bottom. A set of valves allows the overflowing water to be redirected straight to the sump during maintenance.

    From what I read he planned and set this tank up in 2002.so today its about 3 years old.

    Yes 10,000 wats is alot of juice, and the equipment he is using is the cream of the crop.
    The whole setup would bankrupt me but I sure would like to have one .

    I shouldn't have watched the video. Now realize I don't have a reef system but a fully functioning quarentine tank.

    I think the smaller plentifull fish makes it look even more like a real reef, and rememberit may be 20' long but it is still only as high as many of our tanks.

    I plan on building an even larger tank as soon as the folks at Lotto 649 agree to finance me
