i've bought from tenecor before and the service was great and the product they delivered (stand, tank, canopy, filtration) was in perfect shape. they are a top notch company and well worth the extra cash you might end up spending...

ebay is a tough call. i used to buy stuff all the time. some pet related, some regarding my other hobbies. i got smoked more often on ebay than i have dealing with all my other companies put together...

nothing worth doing in life is easy, seriously, nothing...

My custom tank was 66 inches wide, 33 inches tall and 20 inches deep with a center overfow. Total volume approx 188 gallons. I didn't mind spending extra because this tank was going into a spot in my living room that I will have for...well, my mortgage is for 25 more years. It fits the spot perfectly. So I am going to have this thing till it breaks. Acrylic is not cheap, and the larger you get, the more it is. I agree with wright4lfe, ebay is risky.

Time to roll the dice.

Ya the ebay links that I would concern myself with are ones from actual businesses not just joe shmoe who doesn't want his tank anymore. I wouldn't buy a used acrylic tank unless it was perfect.

FWIW You know, I would spend the next two years doing just what you said, piece the system together, because it will be a royal pain to break down and relocate. so little by little, get the basics, like the tank you like and maybe the stand and canopy. I would hold off on the pumps, etc until you are ready to set up. Two years down the road, there may be different things available you may want to use, but the basic tank and stand will not change.

Happiness is defined by the joy we bring to the lives of others, for without that, we ourselves cannot be.
