Price quote on RR Aquarium

My LFS is selling 75gals reef ready for 259.99, and then 79.99 for the overflow kit.

Is this a deal, within the norm, or overpriced?

When I was tank shopping about 2 months ago, I think the 75 RR was about $220. The overflow accessory kit is definitely overpriced at $80... should be $49 (you could just buy that online).

price also has to do with what the local market demands...

so in your area that might be the right price...

What brand of RR is it? Oceanics seem to be pretty spendy but I love my 58. I just wish I could find a source of them in Oregon so I could get a 110 instead.
