I paid $300 for my 120 gallon with custom built stand and canopy with built in sump. All pre drilled with plumbing and over flow box. Also came with return pump and a skimmer (which i sold and bought a new one). And as a bonus he gave me his RO/DI unit. So $300 for that tank is a lot of money, you can find good deals out there just have to look hard sometimes. I held off buying a new one, and it was the best thing I did.

Yeah that first set-up is extremely expensive. That 90 gallon sounds like a fairly good catch especially with 90lbs of live rock in it + the equipment.

that stuff isn't worth 6 grand. boy...people trying to get out of the hobby act like used car salesman sometimes..lol.
those prices are way inflated. the skimmer is under powered. google those items he has listed. you will see the prices he listed are 3 and 4 times the retail cost.
