I need help buying a 100 gallon aquarium :(

I can't seem to find any sort of official pricing for 100 gallon aquariums. I need a common brand that is carried by pet stores and local fish stores.

The Marina and Marineland aquariums suit my needs, but I have no idea about the cost.

Any tips, advice, and suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

This is what they sell for near me, they are Visio brand, I owned a few and had good luck with them.

New 100 gallon glass aquarium(60"x18"x23") with glass tops $204.99.

Where do you live? Petco has aquarium sales every 3-4 months. $1 per gallon. I have a few aquariums from them and have never had a problem.

Petco only offers the buck per gallon up to 55 gallon with no tops included.

Tops are always an issue with Petco.
They can get them, but not usually in stock at the store .

Craigslist may offer the size aquarium needed, some deals may also include all the tank components.

Have you checked the big box (petco/petsmart) online? They might have ship to store/store pickup available I avoid shipping costs

Its a lot cheaper to build your own at that size. I have built 4 tanks 3 out of glass and my new 1 out of fibber glass would not recommend doing it in fibber glass though expensive, a really big job and hard work in fibber glass. look on youtube lots of people show you how to do it.

I live in Canada and the max size in PetSmart is 75 gallons. I kind of ruled out building my own aquarium as I don't trust my handiwork with these types of projects, nor do I have the time to do it.

Anything else you guys want to share?

What kind of styrofoam is used underneath the aquarium?

The Petsmart clerk was telling me today to watch for "stupid" sales on fish tanks the next few months. Particularly January. "If it isn't on sale before that, it will be on sale in january."
