how much should a 46 gallon bowfront cost???

i went to a petland today and the 36 gallon bowfront and a 46 gallon bowfront were the same price. they are 129.99. im gonna pick it up later on today. i was just wondering how much money i was saving by getting the 46 gallon. i guess it was a typo but the man there said it wasn't and he wasn't sure why it was that price either.

Um... if you make it saltwater it will be about 1500 dollars. With live rock/ corals, it might run to 2K

Yup, I'm running at about $1000 now, and no fish yet.

46gal tank and stand= $400
AquaC remora skimmer=$160
PC lights= $180
60lbs live rock $230
60lbs live sand $60
Clean-up crew $90
Powerheads, sand, salt mix, heater, test kits, etc.

Thank god for the tax refund.

Mine was 188. came with glass top metal welded stand 36" light. Wal mart still has them, I guess they are going to carry them from now on. I was hoping it was a Christmas item so they would clearance it out

oddly enough I was looking at some 120's tonight and the 120 was like $40 more than the 125.It probablly has to do with the shape of the glass like how many they can cut from a sheet or what have you
