I like how you can see his wife go through pregnancy as the tank is built. In the first pic she does not look pregnant, but later she does and then they show the pic of the kid. You can see her smoking in the bottom left of one which I hope is before the pregnacy. Just goes to show how long this took to build. I am going to add something like this to my list for when I buy my next house.

It's the weight of the water he has to be concerned with -- he added water slowly at "100-200 gallon increments."

And it's plywood, not concrete.

Good, but not amazing. If you remember back in the 80's at Fair Oaks Mall, there was a salt-water pet and aquarium store called Reef-Life Exhibits. The owners/staff were all friends of mine, the store facade tank was 2200 gallons, measured (if I recall, 6' high, 4' wide, and 10' or 12' feet long) weighed 12 tons and it's two glass windows were a special 2 1/2" thick optically corrected plate glass. My buddy used to have swim inside to clean it (and entertain onlookers.) BUT!!!....

The real deal was that the primary investor of the business was a doctor in Romney, WV, that built a 6600 gallon tank in the office of his medical practice...basically, he reinforced a lower-level (roughly) 15' x 15' bedroom on this two story house that he ran his business in...and made windows out of two walls...you would enter the tank by opening a door to a 2nd level bedroom...and jumping into the tank. Sharks were about 4 and 5 feet long. My buddy used to have to go up there once a month to clean the inside of that tank too.

Easily less than 10psi on the floor. Probably more around the range of 5-7psi.
