12 ft height x 3 ft depth x 5 ft width Marine Aquarium #1
Hi,

I would love to have a marine aquarium which basically replaces a wall (and act similar to a window) and was discussing this in a shop and they said the acrylic tank alone would cost in excess of ?35k.

I was shocked, I expected expensive just not that expensive.

I don't want to drop what could be a fabulous idea before I really understand the costs involved.

At the moment, just the principle cost of the tank and filtration would be a help. I can find out running, maintenance and stocking later.

I've tried to speak to a bespoke company and they give me the run around without giving me one idea of the cost involved.

Have you or anyone you know done anything similar who could give me an idea of the cost (nearest ?1k would do).

Also, if you know of any reason why this is not feasible. I have a concrete floor and the foundations I have been reliably told will take the weight.

All help is appreciated.

My thanks,
Nichola
