Are these decent prices?

-Oceanic 72g bow front Reef-ready tank for $220
-Overflow kit for $60
-Oceanic stand for $300

I dont have any other stores to compare to...

Always helps to have cash up front.

I paid $250 for the tank, $260 for the stand and the overflow accessory kit came with the reef ready tank. Don't let them try to sell it to you, it is shipped with the tank.

I bargain w/ mine, money talks. If you're using credit or debit, forget it. I usually negotiate tax or a few bucks off livestock w/ cash.

Always try to bargain! Or at least demand a discount because you're such a valued customer .. most of the prices are super-inflated so they have plenty of room for negotiation. The first thing I do whenever I'm in any store is go chat with someone who works there (or if possible the owner). Building a good relationship with an LFS is well worth the effort.
