What do you mean by ported? Canisters dont require a special tank. Are you meaning drilled? Thats only necessary for a sump, and would be more of a hassle if you're not running a sump. You're going to get your best deal local. Shipping will kill you on a tank. Do you have a petco around? They periodically have sales for $1 a gallon on their tanks (there's a size limit though). Petsmart doesn't have bad priced tanks either. Craigslist is always the best choice IMHO
. I've made several good deals on there. I got my 150g complete setup with 2 canisters, lights, stand, heater, and a bunch of accessories for $225.
