Lol, have a look through google sell all the furniture, tv's etc and get a 1000gallon tank if you do all this before everyone gets home you can maybe get a portable TV player to go in the living room along with the 1000gallon and they might not notice.

I feed in the evening and always turn off the return pump, usually after dosing myself with 2-3 Vodka Martinis, dose self not tank is my rule, numeres times the return has been of for 8-10 hours over night, never lost anything or had a problem, just low temp, heaters are in the sump, might be worse durring the day with th MH on.
