HAIFA, Israel – A man named Eli from Israel has built a massive 10,000-gallon home reef aquarium in his living room.

Eli, who is a wildlife enthusiast, came up with a massive coral reef aquarium in his living room all by himself; just for him to be able to swim with his fishes.

On his YouTube video, Eli explains the filtration and life support system he is using in the home reef aquarium that he built in 2012 and will complete five years soon. The tank is so massive that he can even get inside and swim with the fishes.

“It is a 30,000-liter tank and when adding the sump [the aquarium’s filter system], it is close to 37,000 liters, or 10,000 gallons, making it the largest home reef aquarium in Israel, and probably one of the largest in the world,” Eli said in the video.

An impressive glass panel installed as one of the walls of the aquarium was used by Eli to look into the tank as he sits relaxing. He admits that it needs a lot of upkeep and quite a bit of technology to maintain.

An article by Kara O’Neill for the Mirror Co UK said that the sump and filtration system located on the floor below the tank was installed by four water pumps technology with 25,000 liters per hour capacity to return water from sump back to the aquarium.

This technology is also used to maintain creation of foam at desired level.

Eli says that he uses natural sunlight to keep the corals alive and nourished and also has used four 100W LEDs for evenings. He has created a YouTube channel and a Facebook page to keep fans updated with more information about his incredible aquarium.
