Was going to suggest that but didn't think it existed.. There's like this monster fish museum somewhere though. It's like a whole house worth of tank.

I can only imagine how big the one at Big Als was. There was a 5' shark in it.

Plus the what had to be custom one at the Marine Institute... or wherever they are housing the giant squid these days. I believe it was like 10 foot long or so for the tentacles. But I could be mistaken, it was YEARS ago when I did see it.

EDIT: while not a standard tank.. a 29 foot giant squid is on sale at The Rooms. It is in poor condition, and if I'm right, been preserved for 30+ years. I have no idea what's left of it.

WARNING: dead squid, not in the best shape!

oh my goodness.. That nasty squid. It's sadly like the "coolest" thing at the museum. All that money on the new museum, too much empty space inside. I highly doubt the old fishing rooms (from which The Rooms is designed from) had that much extra space in the 17th and 18th century..
There's really cool ww1 and other war artifacts in there though. Helmets and guns.


Oh yum DQ!!! I love them!

Yes, please tell Elizabeth!

I'm back from the plastic shop. Got all the stuff I need, just need to silicone it together. How can plastic be so expensive?

Knifefish!!!!!! I love the knifefish. Knifefish faces look like puppydog faces.

Oh yes, moving the fish will be fun but it's not that far so it won't be hard. The most fun will be the 55gal.

EDIT: Who would buy a preserved 29ft squid and why. And how much. o.O
