Have I found a great deal here?

I'm just trying to justify this. I sold my 92 corner bow, my 55, and I'm selling just about everything else I don't need and putting everything on hold (except my 10g planted 2 w/fry) until at least mid-summer (when I find out if I passed my PE)

Today, I found a local person selling a used 125 Long (72x18x20) oak trim non-drilled tank in excellent condition (minimal scratches, seals are great) and a custom-made oak stand for $350, delivered to my house.

I want it. But am I blinded? Can I buy a new tank for 25% more and build my own stand for $100?

I plan on drilling the tank myself for a Calfo 3-pipe system, so I don't care that it's not RR.

My tanks: 120 Reef w/L2 Algae Scrubber, 60 Reef Pond w/floating Algae Scrubber, 40 Breeder Reef w/L2 UAS Tester Algae Scrubber
I maintain: 144 SW Reef w/L2 Algae Scrubber | 200 SW Reef w/L4 Algae Scrubber
Special knowledge: Algae Scrubbers, Acrylic Fabrication

Be patient I sold my 125 gallon tank for 150.00. Deals come and go everyday. Pick the tank size and details you want and wait for it
