I see everyone trying to help you save money

here is a good example of what they are trying to explain to you .

I went new with everything when I got my 90 g a few years back set me back around $3500. ,

now if I went the same set up but used I could have achieve the same thing for about half.

No one is telling you anything to mislead you just showing how you can save some money .

remember not all used tanks are worth it you can most of the time visually tell if things were maintained .

Always look around at a few setups before you decide don't jump on the first thing you see unless your sure it's the right one . if the seller is trying to push it on you there is probably something he is not telling you.

the more you look around you will find that diamond in the ruff In other words used but well maintained , along with everything you need to get you up and going

always remember the final decision is yours

glad to see your considering upgrading and look forward to your build

good luck

Thank you for the advice everyone! I am not in a huge rush to try and get this new setup going overnight.

I will look around for online posts of people in my area getting out of the hobby.

Sooner or later I'm bound to come across something that might be the right fit for me and what I would like to create with this next tank.

I learned a lot of things from setting up my first aquarium. One of the biggest things I learned was to have patients and to do all my research well ahead of time.

I was so excited to get started with my first setup that I didn't really do enough research. I had to stumble a lot and Learn things as I went.

There were a lot of things that, if I had only known about them from the beginning, would have saved me a lot of frustration, time, and money.

I'm excited to share more about how this venture progresses as I start building the new set up.

Thanks again everyone!

I picked my 125 gallon with filters, lids, lights, stand, and heaters up off Craiglist for $275.
