Nottingham fish tank man dreams of big aquarium job
A man who owns what is thought to be the UK's biggest privately-owned aquarium, in the basement of his Nottinghamshire home, said he dreams of building something much bigger and turning his hobby into a job.
The 4,500-gallon freshwater fish tank is 7ft (2.1m) deep and 13ft (4m) wide.
It cost Jack Heathcote from Carlton £5,000 to create and is home to several stingrays, two turtles, a catfish and a 4ft (1.2m) alligator gar fish.
Mr Heathcote said he had had a passion for fish since childhood and dreamt of building a 50,000 gallon tank and breaking the world record for a private aquarium, currently held by an American.
