    that ia absolutely amazing, and if u check out his site he has a log of his 500g tank... that was later upgraded...

    why this guy is a homebuilder and not a marine biologist i don't understand... i wish i had some access to cold water stuff.. come summer, i might rely on you east coast folks!

    Edit: Ok as if he said 120g was small... my biggest tank is a 65g and its not even in use...

    god i wonder how much his whole set up cost? i'm betting over 50k USD... not including livestock of course...

    That's refreshing and unusual. But very expensive. Isn't running a chiller more costly than heaters and lights for warm water?

    chiller are wicked expensive to run ya, but if u keep the tank somewhere where temp doesn't get high, say in a basement, then its not needed, AC in summer should keep it plenty cool and in winter basement like mine is freezing anyway since i block the vents

    Chillers are expensive, i was wondering if you could mod an airconditioner.
    i would think one could use the weather in a canadian winter to cool a tank, run a pipe outide or something to save a little bit of $$$

    Very cool!
