150g drilled aquariums

Posted a bit ago about a new system I'm having built.

Really high prices for the tank - I've already talked to glasscages.com, any other sources for quality 150g reef-ready tanks anyone knows of?

When dealing with aquariums, I have found that the best thing to do is deal with the LFS. The shipping is a killer on a big tank like that.

I agree, have your LFS special order it, they sometimes might not charge you as much markup as their regular stocked ones.

Indeed. I did just find a good deal on a 150 reef-ready locally.

Yeah - he's got 220G's on sale right now, for less than the 150's (not supposed to say, but its around six with two zero's). All-glass brand. Too bad I don't want to mess with that much water

Oh, I'd love a 220. But I have to beg this missus as it is for a new bucket of salt every couple months. Wouldn't want to have to double that. Gotta be sensible
