    I think it was in the 1600g tank thread that Tom mentioned his ideal tank would be closer to a swimming pool size setup... I found this pool and it reminded me of that. Seems like a step in the right direction...

    I set up a natural pool like this for two clients, awesome results.


    This is the way to do it.
    Cost much less, looks great, takes some more work here and there, but the cost overall is less.

    My ideal tank is quite different than this though, it is a mountain torrent stream with waterfalls and a large cold pool with golden trout that I can still swim in(60F).

    But I can still have a hot tub next to it:)
    And still filter the water through the main system slowly.

    No peeing in the fish tank though!!

    It's still an outdoor "pond" though.
    My ideal indoor tank is a mere 225 gal.
    72Lx24Hx30"D.

    I'm having two made here in about 2-3 months.

    its my tank now, but...

    i have a 24x30x72, however, its not rimless, which I dont like at all, plus unfortunately it used to be a turtle tank, and I scatched the front of it trying to get off a turtle ramp mounting strip.

    So...
    Who can make a rimless one? i would order one that was rimless if I could and re-setup the tank.
