420 gallon tank with 75 gallon wet/dry using a 100 RLT (2000 gal/hr) pump for recycle (overflow return); separate closed loop 250 series cannister w/40RLT (800 gal/hr) pump (bottom of tank return), 114W UV sterilizer. Where will I see problems? (except my wallet)

GOD BLESS Most people keep fish in a 75 and you're using it as your friggin filter! Thats crazy on a very large scale. I can't answer your question though. Lets see some pics of this outrageous setup.

a lot of people prefer two smaller pumps over one gigantic one in situations like this. if one goes out or has any other problem, you wont be as fucked

Coming down the stairs to the basement (remember, this thing weighs 1200 pounds empty, and 5000 pounds full)

Presently, the plan is to move a dozen RBP's that are now in a 75 down there. They are about 5 months old, and about 4-5" long. I want to grow them large (12"+) so i won't add too much more (atleast nothing that will live!)......

Just curious, how much did you spend? You make me want to get one now!
It wasn't cheap. The tank goes for about $6200, but I talked them down a bit. With tax, delivery ($500), and dismantling of a previous tank (which I'll make into furniture), I think they are into me about $4980. I still have to pay for the filtration system that will be another $3400. So it will be about $8400, plus I still will need to get things like gravel, and build a lighting system, run a few 20-amp circuits, etc. Probably when all is said and done, it's $10K. Pricey, but it's top shelf....great glass (all polished edges, really sweet).

10g's for a tank that will house a dozen reds?? man, kinda seems a little wastefull IMO

no offense, its 10 times the tank I will ever own (mabye 5
), I just think there should be something spectactular in a tank like that (like some piraya or BIG caribas or a couple BIG ternz's)

what are the dims on it?

you missed the point. i'll try to be a little more clear.

i was giving him props on such an awesome and expensive setup, but was wondering why the only planned inhabitants were to be a dozen RBP's.
