Best places online to buy a tank?

I was wondering if anyone had had any experiences with ordering a tank thru a website? Right now I am shopping around trying to find the best quality and cost balance. I am getting quotes from and feeling out my LFS’ but I am still wondering if I can get a better deal from somewhere online. So please let me know how you feel about the various websites that sell tanks online. I am looking at getting a glass tank over 125 gallons with overflow holes drilled for me. I would like to buy a sump from the same place but that is not as important as the deal on the main tank.
Thanks for all of your help,
BurlyBear

i do not have experience with ordering a tank but the first thing that comes to mind is shipping. a 125+ would be heavy.

as for a sump i suggest picking up a used tank ( a 55 gallon would work ) some plexi (or glass) sheets, and some aquarium safe silicone. a DIY sump allows you to make it how you want it, and saves you a good number of bucks.
