If I lived anywhere near the west coast, I would have that tank. The dimensions are extremely similar to what I'm wanting. Its all acrylic too!

I do 50% weekly water changes on a 500g. I have hot and cold water lines run right overtop the tank. Its not that big of a deal but takes a long time (I usually just watch tv).

Cleaning the gravel is a bigger problem though.

I just though about something if you built say a 3000gallon tank or 100g. would water changes even really be all that neccasary?

That would probably depend on how good your filtration was. And how many tankbusters you had in there.

It all depends on the mass of fish to volume of water ratio. If you stock a 1000g tank with 100 Neons, water changes aren't really going to be nessacary. But who would do that? No one. In fact people are more likely to over stock a large tank than a small one. A 1000g tank with a 3' Black Niger Cat, five 24" Pacu, 5 adult Oscars, a 2' diameter Motoro, and a school of ten 12" Prochilodus is going to need some pretty heafty water changes.

actually I saw a tank of about 180g one time with what had to have been a couple thousand neons in it. looked awesome. it was literaly like a 20inch h 36 inch long cloud of color schooling around.

if you do the math it's alot of money in fish too. I figure at a discount $1.00 a neon. the ones I have in my 10g are 1.99
