(I use gallons on this form cause most people here are American even though I live in the uk) so in the UK we don't use gallons we use litres so we don't have a one dollar per gallon sale at stores also we don't have pets smart we only have pets at home (which does not do marine fish) so 75 gallons is about 300 litres so what other ways can u get a large fish tank for cheap

I assume you are able to get shipments from anywhere correct?

Probably not, anywhere in the UK would be great but I suppose I would not mind getting something from west europe but I would probably not be able to

Normally I'd say trying to order from a tank manufacturing company for warranty purposes. But I'm not familiar with your specific situation so have you tried amazon or eBay?

75G = 283liters
300liters = 79.2G

So close enough.
200liters is 52G so probably a 55G commercially sold aquarium.
They always round.

Here you could get a 55 for under $60, don't know the equivalent in pounds

But with a stand it'll be more.

$60 dollars would be less than 60 dollars in pounds since 1 pound is worth more than a dollar

I know the pound is worth more. That's why I said I'm not sure how much $60=pounds. And he could always build a simple stand for cheap :)

Edit ok $60=47ish lol

With your situation it doesn't sound like you are going to be able to get a great deal on a tank. People who are selling used tanks for cheap aren't usually willing to deliver them. They are selling them so cheap because they want someone else to do that work. Since you are probably going to have to pay more for a used tank I would look into a new one so you can get exactly what you want with a warranty and get it delivered.
