I am going with a glasscages.com tank. The tank only costs $745 retail before shipping. I can pick it up at a tradeshow in IL for $80! I was going to go with an oceanic 200 but my dealer cost on that is $792! And the oceanic does not have starfire glass. I actually think the glasscages uses a generic Starfire glass but if its glear who cares!

I heard some people locally say that the tanks at glasscages.com were very nice and the price was fantastic.

good luck

Did you say $80 for a $745 tank!?!?!

Maybe I'll drive to IL.

I'm having to wait for my final, custom built retirement home for the in wall. Of course with the room in the back for the fridge, water supply, drain, QT setup.

WOW, won't tell you what I paid for my 210.
Nice perk for being in the business.

The low lead glass added $120 and the oveflows were an extra $100 plus you need overflow covers for $50 a piece. I think i added that up right! He told me in a few weeks the will be south of chicago.

Best part is this whole project is a write off! Sometimes life is good!

$80 is just a fee for him bringing it to the show. The tank was $745. If i have it shipped to a freight dock in milwaukee it wwill cost $290. I think i will drive a few hours to save $210.
