Question on Acrylic Tank...

Anyone know where I can get a good price on a Acrylic reef ready tank in the North East area? I am thinking of upgrading to a 120-140 in the near future but I would like to find the best price possible in my area as I am still a full time student.

For a tank that size, retailer will usually ship for free. If you buy a reef ready system, be prepared to spend north of $2Gs. I ordered my Tenecor 135G from www.thepetsstop.com

HTH.

Ya I wouldn't get a 120 for 1300 there (just the tank) when brand new acrylic 190s are going for about 900 on ebay. They are reef ready too.

I got a custom tank from them, to my specifications, shipped to my house for $1600. It was pricey, but the service was great, and I got a beautiful tank. I probably could have gotten it cheaper, but I got peace of mind dealing with an established and well known company. Good luck with it.

1600 for what size and was that the stand and canopy? It isn't that I can't justify the price it is just that I am still in college and paying my way just to live with a PT job. I am trying to think of the future ya know? I have a 55 AGA and upkeep is fine... I can afford what I need to run it but obviously spending $3000 at once is a bit much for me. I do only have two years left so if I don't have the complete system by then it isn't a huge deal but the bug bit me ya know? I feel the limitations of my setup obviously but I also don't want to buy something because it is cheap either and not be happy with it in a year or so. I figure a descent acrylic tank would suit me fine for years to come. Maybe on the other hand I shouldn't get too into it either because I won't be in my apartment for more than 2 yrs more. That basically gives me two years to piece my system together.
