where do can you buy a reef tank?

Been trying to shop arond for some 90-125g reef tanks (preferably predrilled?) glass or acrylic but i haven't really been able to find anyplace that sells them. My region really isn't a big on fish and the LFS's in my area sell some glass tanks that are larger but no reef ready.

Online shops or even LFS in Lincoln/Omaha/Kansas City would work. Can someone point me in the right direction?

I want to upgrade to a 125 reef tank. Not that i want to start a reef really but i will in the future and i'd prefer to buy a tank that i can use for a reef later on...even if i'm only going with a FOWLR tank for now. I'm thinking about building my own stand and canopy and making my own sump. But i would like to purchase the aquarium itself. Any ideas?

For glass- Oceanic and all-glass sell pre-drilled tanks
For acrylic- Tenecor and many others.

Remember, just because a store doesn't have a pre-drilled 25 with bulkheads in-stock doesn't mean they won't order it in for you. I know Fish World in Lincoln will deliver the tank to you if you live in-town.

There are usually some really nice acrylic tanks on Ebay, as well. Shipping is usually fairly steep, though.

I bought my 50 gallon acrylic Tenecor from www.ah-supply.com. Cost me just over $200 and shipping was included (!). Arrived in perfect condition, great tank. I recommend them.
