It is a 6000 liter, 400x150x150cm, custom made German tank located in ADA's HQ. This picture does not even do it justice. It is featured in AJs 89 and 92. It is also featured in ADA 2002 product catalog. This monster would take up half my living room! Ya, my wife would love that.
Im not sure this is necessarily related, but there was a 240,000 gal aquarium made in some European hotel not too long ago. It was in Popular Science. The article said that they at any given time, have a minimum of 3 divers in there keeping it clean. The aquarium was an 8 story cylinder of ginormous scale.
Just thought it kinda added on to very large aquariums.
With the help of killies.com people I was able to find the thread on the monster tank. Too bad they had to take away the pictures. it is ~53000 US gallons !:!. Most of the specs are written for it and it's not yet completed. Located somewhere in SE Asia......
At first there was hysteria and lots of hype but the owner dampened that with the picture fiasco and now no one knows if any public photos will be available. Plus the aquarium is not actually in Singapore but is built in a country somewhere nearby but I think that's been cleared up already.
Well, James Lim paid nothing for the rights to AquaJournal so if he is as good at business as that, he must have (a) litigation power, and (b) money, and (c) intent to make profit from it. I have not noticed Vectrapoint has been at all helpful in maintaining supply of the English editions of AquaJournal, more to the pity. Perhaps he will have some paparazzi photographers with long lenses come with ladders to take shots which we can publish.... ;-)
