I watched the whole video. Fascinating. Where is there coral farm and how many gallons is it? I tried to find out but some of their website isn't developed. They have got to have several million gallons. Wonder what that cost.

That's the farm, right there in the video. It's the lines of rocks on the sea floor. I'm still so amused at the idea of a farm that requires scuba gear to work!

I was wondering where in the world he could have an aquarium that big to farm. I couldn't find the answer. That's millions of gallons of water. He must co-own his farm with a couple of banks.
