Thierry Henry is getting a 40-foot fish tank
Stretching 40ft from the bottom of his house to the top, it will require 5, 500 gallons of water to fill, house 300 fish and cost a staggering £250, 000 [$400, 000] to create. His proposals detail the extravagant four-storey aquarium.
Along with the vast cost of construction, the 15ft long by 3ft wide tank will set Henry right back £12, 000 [$19, 000] a year to perform, including weekly inspections at about £50 [$80] one hour. The annual bill for fish food alone would be £2, 500 [$4, 000].
That appears like an awful lot of money for fancy fish. If Henry wanted to see something witlessly float around without achieving any such thing, he should just watch a few of Andrei Arshavin's recent highlights.
Unnecessarily large aquariums are the rage among footballers: David Beckham, Joe Hart and Micah Richards all keep these things, and based on the Daily Mail, Stephen Ireland is planning "a shark tank under his kitchen floor. " Presumably, the program is to install a trap door and invite Steve Staunton over for drinks.
