tank upgrade!

I wanted to upgrade my current 40 gal acrylic to a 80 gal acrylic with built in overflow...

Ive called a few places and found the lowest price of $280 for the tank only...

U guys think this is a good deal or no? Im going to check it out today!

What have u paid for your tank? what size?

That is not a bad price. However, I have no experience with acrylic tanks. I do think they run a bit more then glass of the same size. The built-in overflow will also icrease the price. FWIW, I think I paid $259 for my glass 72gal bow front reef-ready tank. I do not think it is out of line.

Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
