Petsmart top fin 75 gallon?

So I've been browsing Craigslist, etc for over a week and I'm looking for a 75 gallon tank. This one at petsmart:

75 Gallon Fish Tank » Clear for Life Rectangle Acrylic UniQuarium 75 Gallon | PetSmart

Why is it so cheap? I figure the hood light will be a toss, but brand new that seems less than people are selling the same size used. Some tanks at petsmart run $500+...what's the difference?

Current: 50 gal freshwater. Soil substrate, sand/gravel cap, live planted tank, Super HW-302 filter. 2 blue line rasbora, 3 red serpae tetra, 1 black molly, 2 koi angelfish, 1 plecostomus, 2 blue dwarf gourami, 1 common musk turtle named Leo.

I bought that same tank. Its actually a really good deal. Do not toss the light and hood because they are very good quality. It even comes with the bulb. The glass top is really good too. The tank is really good quality and had it for about a year and still have no problems. Just like new.

It is just the tank and hood.
No stand or filter. Dont know what is included in the Clist deals you see but that would change pricing a lot. Also some people think they can get back all the money they've spent.
If you put off what you can do today until tomorrow it will never get done cause tomorrow never comes. It's always today.
