When Mehmet Ali Gökçeoğlu bought his luxury oceanfront villa in Çeşme, Turkey, he wanted to see the ocean from every floor. But what’s a wealthy homeowner to do when his home doesn’t offer ocean views from the basement?

Build a 164-foot aquarium fence around his property, full of fish, of course.

With the help of a friend who translated for us, Yahoo! Homes talked to the homeowner via Facebook and got the full story: how and why he built the aquarium, how much it cost, what it takes to maintain it and more. Click through the slideshow to find out.
