If you do buy from CL
be sure to inspect the braces of larger tanks. If the tank is not indoors and in use, a lot of folks store their tanks outside. I've seen a lot of tanks sitting outside with plastic braces/trim in bad shape because of the summer heat and uv
damage to the plastic.
I learned the hard way when I got my 125g for $50. Plastc brace was cracking and snapped into pieces when I got home. Ended up replacing the brace with aluminum and is working out fine now.
Just make sure to inspect everything and ask how long it's been sitting outside if that's the case.
