What prices do you guys see for 150/180g tanks?

I've been looking to upgrade in the next couple months and have found
this a little akward I do not understand. The 2 local stores I would consider buying a tank from offer the following

the hidden reef(not sure on make but they have 2 overflow in the middle of the back wall)
150 non reef ready $420
150 RR $500 plus need to buy 2 overflow kits $39.99 each or make my own durso pipes

180 non reef ready $570
180 RR $ 640 need to buy/make durso pipes

thatfishplace(oceanic)
150 non reef ready $500
150 RR $650 (I belive overflow kits included)

180 non reef ready 500
180 RR $808 (I belive overflow kits included)


Why is it one place the non reef ready are cheaper and the other place the RR are cheaper? This doesn't make sense to me, maybe they are different make tanks? How do these prices compare to what anybody else has seen/paid?

I was looking at that when I bought my 72g bowfront but coudn't swing that plus all the money for lights/etc... So I would up getting the 72 which is just to small to do what I originally wanted so I"m looking for a new plan for this tank and a larger tank for my other plan .

Thats why I went w/ the 175...That way I can go 4-5 years w/o upgrading again.

Its odd that a 175gal tank feels small.

You could always DIY. My 82 gal. was a DIY, I bought it from the guy who built it for $70, around here that size is between 150-200.

Yeah it kinda all depends on where you go but like the 135g Oceanic show tank that I was looking at was 500.00 somthing for the tank and the stand.. I believe the tank was like 249.00 or so.. Tank prices all very by where you live.. An LFS around here usually holds on to tanks for quite some time before selling them.. I just got my wife a baby trigger for the bedroom 29gal.. (in hopes that when it starts to get bigger so She can take the 55gal and I can finally buy a 150+gal) Use guilt on her.. Well we have to get a bigger tank or get rid of that cute fish of yours LOL..
