    Thierry Henry's 40' Tall 5500 Gallon Aquarium

    Check out this article about Thierry Henry's plan for a 40 foot tall 5500 gallon setup. Estimates are that it will cost $400,000 to build and $19,000 per year to maintain.

    Crazy, why only 3 feet?

    And someone didn't calculate correctly, with those measurements its 13,465 gallons.

    Yeah article says 5500 gallons and £250,000 (~$400,000). But yeah, maybe they are getting 5500 gallons based of of the thickness of the glass??
