Some websites

Could anyone guide me towards some websites that have good deals on tanks?

I'm just looking for a 75-100 gallon glass tank.

Also, I know this can vary greatly, but can anyone tell me approximately how much a filter would be for a 75 g and a 100 g tank.

It will be a saltwater fish only tank with 15% water change every week.

Glasscages.com - Home has the best prices online generally, though the quality can vary greatly from reviews I have seen.

If you are on a budget, check craigslist in your area. You can often pick up tanks for dirt cheap that look brand new. If you go this route, you want to pay less than $1/gal.

Petco and Petsmart tend to have recurring $1/gal sales throughout the year. You could ask your local store when they might be having the sale again.

The filter cost is going to very greatly, as you alluded to. It depends on the type, the brand, the size, etc. etc. If you are on a tight budget, make sure you are being realistic with what will be required- there is a lot more to setting up a new tank than just the glass and the filter. Consider - salt, heaters, refractometer, test kits, cleaning tools and supplies, food, livestock, substrate, live rock, lights, etc etc.

Thanks for the link; I will definitely check it out. I have looked into all of the prices with the exception of the heater and the filter just because I am still trying to decide what size tank I want to start with.
