Starfire glass is much more expensive than regular glass because of the clarity and is usually MUCH more expensive. A 1/2" thick 4x3 piece is probably 800 or so dollars itself.

I would think because of the added width I would say it`s OK.

I apologize, the measurements are 4x3x30 inches. So it isn't quite 3 ft tall, but that shouldn't effect a tangs swimming room. That explains why it was calculating at 270 gallons. I put my old tank on Craigslist today. Let the countdown begin for the 250. Lol

I have a tank that is 39" high... I suggest buying 20w LED's and doing a DIY set-up...

ahh big differnt, wit ha 30 inch tank you could probably light 'er up with T5s only thing is you'll need really good reflectos ballasts and bulbs. the ATI fixtures or icecap would be best.

my LFS has a similar sized tank to that, i think is 220g though but its super expensive with the stand an canopy. i think they are sellign it for something like $3500. and that comes pre drilled with two overflows in the back corners

Yeah, 3500 is probably right. I am giving 1500 for the 250 gallon. It has dual overflows, heater, wet/dry filter (Bio balls will be gone first thing), T5 Light strip (Not a very powerful one), stand and canopy. It is being classified as used, I can't tell if the guy who owned it set it up or not, I don't see a mark on it. It has a black stand and canopy. It was just too good of a deal to pass on.

Nice picture Melosu, do you think a hippo and two or three yellow tangs would be alright? I wouldn't want to do more than that, everything else I want to keep is much smaller and less active.

I bet you could sell those bioballs (I would have wanted them but I found a few gallons of them locally) for a god price. They're in pretty big demand with ponders.
