what do you think about these tanks?

well found a couple tanks locally that i might go check out but obviously i have to get everyone heres opinion first

first is this 125 dual overflow tank dual overflows but one looks to be broken. i've been wanting a 125 but probably wouldn't use this one. i want a nice new tank lol. but i might be able to get this one for cheap so wanted to see if everyone here thinks it would be worth the trouble to buy and resell? comes with what looks to be some kind of skimmer and a sump.






so what do you guys think would be good deals on these?

then there is this acrylic tank that i would actually be interested in using simply because i like the all clear look. it says 120 gallons but from the dimensions i think it is a little bit smaller than that. its 60x18x24 with a center overflow.

Gotta say I like the acrylic but I dont trust them myself. Ive heard too much about yellowing and scratches. The 125 I dont know that I would try resale unless it was a super super good deal. hate for it to fail

what would you consider a good deal on the 125? the seller wants $75 obo on it. i was thinking that the sump thats there with it is worth that? just not sure if it is worth moving that big of a tank?

i think i am definitely going to go see the acrylic tank. the seller of that one wants $125.

I am not an expert by any means. It depends on your area too wether it would sell or not. It sounds good to me if it holds water but please dont buy it on my advise!

i think i actually find a site that sells the acrylic tank new for $855. its advertised there as being 125 gallons but all calculators i've used for the dimensions say around 112..

125 Gallon Acrylic Trapezoid Overflow Aquarium 60x18x24,Tsunami Built in Overflow Aquariums,Acrylic Aquarium,Aquarium with Overflow,Overflow Aquarium,Fish Tank,Acrylic Fish Tank,

Businesses do oversize their tanks sometimes lol Acrylic does scratch easier than glass but it is easier to fix via sanding or buffing the scratches out. Honestly on the acrylic tank... If it holds water and I had the money I would probably go for it. As long as its in good shape.
