280,000 Gallons? That's a MILLION litres.

A full reef system too, the implications of that are incredible. The lighting needed alone!

Have you seen Georgia Aquarium?

It's the largest in the world, Over 8 Million Gallons! Has over 100,000 inhabitants I think, here's a couple videos:




There's Manta Ray, Whale Shark, sharks, shoal fish and loads more. Amazing how something like that with such a large diversity of fish can be kept.

That Manta Ray likes putting on a show doesn't it!

There's nothing like seeing a shoal of Tangs. :D
