Oh, talked to fish store today. They wont match the price. The guy said he bought the tank from two different batches, and he cant go any lower or he`ll be losing money on the deal.
So I think I`m going to take a roadtrip up to a shop up in Pensacola that I`ve heard good things about so far for livestock, and order the rest of my parts either through catalogs, or online. This is coming from a store that advertises themselves as the largest marine dealer in norther florida for the last 35 years, although judging by the size of their showroom, I would tend to doubt that. Its a shame, I really expected better customer service after I waited this long for the stand. The guy did say he called ocea and the stand will be there friday.
