Tank Size: 700
Advice: Dont try this if you are poor.
Description: Yes...that is a 700 Gallon tank on that little ledge above the kitchen. 4 tonnes of weight (glass, rock, coral, filter coral, water, etc...) right there. Dont worry, even though the house was designed with no center walls or pillars, it was built with a skeleton framework to hold all that weight right there. Instead of a boring wall to divide the floors, this fish tank does the trick nicely.
