Hi All!!

I have been running my 150 gallon reef tank for 3-4 years now, and it is time to upgrade to a 300 gallon! My tangs are getting a bit to large for my 150.

To put things in perspective: I am looking for a 2-3 year tank. My fiance and I are still in our starter house and will be looking to move in a few years, so I am not quite looking for the starphire tank of my dreams. Instead, I am looking for a light, durable, practical tank.

That being said: does anyone have a reputable source/best bang for your buck 300 gallon acrylic tank?

Thanks,

Scott

Check with local reefers, clubs, fish stores, Craigslist, post in WTB sections, etc.

I picked up a 375g that needed repair/polish, rough stand and 125g sump for $700.

Built correctly, 3/4" acrylic, new, with external overflow, I was being quoted $3500 with shipping included.

Goodluck

Haha, I have definitely been doing that for the last couple months, but I will keep looking! Thanks for the advice!

A ton depends on your area, Seattle area has been a positive pleasant surprise.

Marine Solutions in St Charles, MO had a large used acrylic tank for sale on Saturday when I was there. I would give them a call and ask about.
