I've been taking care of a 29gal for a few months now. Had some downs but after doing a little research and asking questions here things seem to be fine.
I'm ready to upgrade and have been looking at 75-90gal tanks. I've come across what seems like good deals on Craigslist but want some feedback before moving ahead. I want to stock with cichlids.
- There is a really nice 80gal acrylic aquarium complete with stand, lid, lights, pumps, etc. All for $500. It look really really nive with the curved corners I just don't know anything about acrylic. They don't seem to be popular as this is the first I've come across. Are there pros/cons to an acrylic tank?

if anyone wants to look.
- There are a lot of aquariums for sale without any additional equipment such as heaters, filters and lights. I am also a bit confused as to the difference between the water pumps and filters. I need advice on the hardware I would need operate a tank this size.
- There is also a nice 72gal bowfront with all sorts of pipes and sumps in the stand. I've never run a system like this, what is the purpose and do they actually make things easier to manage?
