I'm getting my first big aquarium and my LFS has many huge tanks but I don't know what competing prices are and whether I'm getting cheated out of my money or not.

A 60 gallon aquarium w/o a canopy or stand is around $100

A 100 gallon aquarium w/o a canopy or stand is around $200

Add the canopy and stand and thats an extra $200 for each aquarium.

Whats the better deal? Are there other stands I could get or make that would be cheaper than what my LFS is charging?

Thanks,
Mobern

Where do you live? I find that ebay has tons of great deals on tanks, but they always seem to be in California, or the northeast... Sad

Anyway, if you have a table saw and a few other tools, you should be able to make your own stand... Are you familiar w/ wood working?

IMO, a 60 gallon for $100.00 w/out stand or tops and lighting is an okay deal, not the best, but, imo, you're not getting ripped off either...
