Have you checked Craigslist? There are great deals on fish tanks all the time. I recently found a 55 gallon with filters, gravel, etc. All for $150.

If you have a local Petco near you, they usually have dollar per gallon sale around this time of year on 10, 20L and 20H, 40B, and 55 Gallon tanks.

Remember to be patient. When using craigslist many people think their tank is worth what they payed for it brand new. They also think their pink rocks and plastic plants add value to the setup. If you're patient you can find deals of varying quality depending on your area. For instance, in Georgia(great area for fishkeeping) I won't pay more than $1/gallon on tanks, but that doesn't mean these deals are always available. Here's a couple tips:

1.) Patience, wait for the deals to pop up.
2.) Patience, when someone doesn't want to come down on the price, don't give in just yet. If you can hold off, just wait for the ad to sit there for a while.
Come back a few weeks later and re offer a lower bid: by now they probably just want to get rid of it. If you lose it(someone else gets it), so what? Wait for that next big deal.
3.) Remember, it's just business, nothing personal.
