    Actually I did thought of a tank that spans the 3 walls of a room, then place the computer desk right smack in the centre of the room.

    Would like to have a big tank probably 5x2x2, built into the wall. Saw 1 in the local marine forum. The owner of that tank is the owner of the marine forum too! Simply awesome! Used starphire glass in the front panel of the tank.

    I'm investigating to make a tank from Sapphire glass, may be on 3 sides of the tank. Any idea the cost of such sapphire glass in Singapore (only the glass) for example 2 pcs (4ft x 2.5ft) and 1 pc (2.5ft x 2.ft)?

    So can start saving for my next personal 'project' !!

    Who know you have 7ft tank?

    But if you really buy 7ft tank and without informing HDB, do you think they will know?

    If I really have budget than I will buy it and shift in without anyone know ..

    So as long as you staying in HDB than cannot buy exist 6ft tank right? or it limit to the type of HDB you own? never heard from HDB b4 lor ...

    If I won the lottery twice and if I owned a house, Instead of walls around the perimeter of the section I would have the tanks. Each side of the section would be one or a couple long tanks [size length: very long, width: 2 meters, height: 2 meters] each representing a complete / balanced biotope... just as well dreams are free

    But the maintenance part would be a nightmare!
