How much do 75G + tanks cost?
 
I just gave my brother most of my fish, simply because they were to big for there tank. I really wanna get a much larger thank so i can get them all back. Does anyone know how much you would spend on a 75g, 90g and 100g tank. Ive seen the ones at the stores going for 1K+ and that's way out there. I'm really hoping you can find them for less help????

Your best bet is to try to find one on CL (the whole setup). I bought my 75 gal. setup with oak cabinet, glass covers, light fixture etc. for $250 (ish) and then wasn't happy with how many scratches there were in the tank glass. So I went out and bought a new tank for approx. $300. I don't remember the exact cost - it's been a few years.

IMO, the equipment and stand are always a lot more expensive than the actual tank. I've seen some really sweet deals on CL over the past few weeks.

Good luck.

Haha i couldn't imagine leaving the hobby. The stands make me mad. They double the tanks cost and you can make a solid one yourself for 60$. I know filters are pretty expensive too. Any idea of the cost for a filter and just the tank?
