would make for a relatively interesting saltwater tank. something that had high flow to keep it cleaner and a ton of colorful saltwater fish schools

 

And.... no. I will absolutely not be swimming in a tank raised that high off the ground. especially with a see through bottom. 🤣

So I guess you wouldn't swim in London's Sky Pool, either?

Ya. Me too. Once was going to take a forestry class. To pass you had to go 50’ up and then 50’ out. I dropped it the next day 😂

For me it’s weird. I can climb trees and do rafter work. But as soon as the roof sheeting is up. I’m out 🤣

I would not hesitate to use the pool, but skinny dipping would definitely be out of the question.

I've been a roofer, skydiver and a rock climber.  When the opportunity presented itself, I climbed one of those transmission towers before the wires were installed.  For some weird reason, risk management mode kicked in 10 feet short of the top, and I couldn't finish.

Ya. It’s getting worse as I get older. Used to not be so bad. Last month I climbed a feed bin to fix its rope. It wobbled. I was frozen in place for 10 minutes. It’s only 18 feet tall 😂

And you’re up there trying to figure out why the heck you can’t move. Stupid brain

Love the marine tank idea. Open water setup, maybe some floating buoys or the like for shelter. I love the razor-thin silvery fish in public aquariums, that virtually disappear when you see them head-on or top-down.
