Cracked tank dilemma

Well, the guy that built the aquarium told my LFS that he would not replace the aquarium. He said it was a "chip" and he would not replace it because of that. Nevermind the fact that it was INSIDE the joint, and not accessible to the exterior of the glass at all. So anyways, he told the LFS it would not expand, or leak. That's a load of ... because it wasn't noticable when the tank was purchased and now it is noticably spreading. I refuse to put 125gal of water +livestock in there. So, my buddy's gonna buy it off me for a snake tank and he's gonna get me the tank at wholesale...about $150 for a 125gal tank, add $100 for the built-in overflow (yeah! ) and it's a grand total of $250 for a ready tank and overflow. Not too shabby. It's not a perfect ending, but you know, it's better than it could've been.

Does petco offer any with built-in overflows? If they do, I'm sold. Perhaps I'll look for that sale when (and that's when, not if) I want to upgrade to a bigger tank. =]
