It would be considerably easier than building from scratch. They are great tanks (with a few modifications) but be prepared to pay a premium price for a premium product.
The skimmer needs changing. Tunze and deltec seem to have some popular offerings, I think the deltec MCE500 fits in the back on the 250 and the Tunze 9002 fits in the back of the 130 (with an aftermarket collection cup).
I have heard of people having problems with temperature being almost uncontrollable in the summer months (in england btw!) so if you went with the 250 would you be running a chiller? What your climate like?
Just make sure you check out custom options beforehand.
