    I've been after one of these ever since i saw one in a readers tank article in a copy of PFK back in 2001 but they proved impossible to find and never appeared on any stock lists unless they were in America or Singapore, that is until yesterday evening while having a look at Wildwoods updated...

    Just out of curiosity i wanted to see how many people have thought about having a very large custom aquarium built compared to how many have actually done it, and how much money people are prepared to spend on buying a tank without winning the lottery or having a rich relative leave them a fortune.
