You can get rimless frag tanks on eBay for half that easy. Rimless is hard to find on Craigslist. The best way to save- like everyone else has said- is to do a lot DIY.

Also- is this just for frags? If so- why not save the money and run it off your current system? I'm setting up a frag tank and running all the equipment and PVC out of my main tank's sump

This wasn't I have X amount of dollars how can I get the biggest tank possible question. I think most have missed the point. His other thread would fall more into that category. His question is simply is what he has listed fair price or not? Unless I misunderstood him last night the power head price is for two and he has no options as far as help to move the tank. He has to have it delivered and installed as he can't do it himself.

Not if you can find a 250 gallon acrylic tank on craigslist for 100 bucks? Not if you can find a rimmed frag tank, etc... Not that if you have the tools and skills can build a stand for less....

He has a specific list for a reason, perhaps he likes the clean looks of a rimless tank, perhaps he only has that much space available for a 48 inch long tank, etc....

No its not i have x amount of dollars he wants to know if he is getting a good deal and most of us have informed him if he is gonna go the retail route then yes that is the correct pricing roughly but with that being said we are trying to be helpful and offer advice on saving money and setting up a more personalized tank. If he doesn't wanna take our advice that is up to him but you don't have to be his "representative" and speak and behalf of the op.. if he likes our alternative ideas great. If not then we have informed him he is in the average price range for retail. None of us are trying to force him to take another direction just offering our 2 cents which imo is better then just saying yes thats fair or no that's not.

If that was for the Edge (rimless) size good price. They make the same tank with rim that general retails for 360 range.
