I live in central FL area. Iv been looking for a 75 gallon tank... it will be freshwater. Actually going back and forth between getting a 55 or 75. Haven't seen much on craigslist for awhile and most pet stores only sell it as a packaged type deal. I just need the tank since I'd be replacing hood, stand and everything. Lfs said I could get one for 160. Is this high or is it about right for a new 75 gallon tank? This would be larger than what Iv had before so I'm a little unsure. Pricing is all over the place online. Opinions?

A 55 gallon you could get for $55 at petco during their sale, but I think that's over now, but they do do it regularly.

$160 sound about right for a new 75 gallon. I would just keep checking Craigslist every 2 days or so, you might find yourself a bargain.

A new 75 gallon with all the trimmings for $160 is a bargain IMO.

$160 for just the 75 gallon is a great price for a brand new tank.

That's a really good deal imo. I have a 75 gallon and I payed $400 for tank and stand ensemble. I did some shopping around and people selling just the tank would have cost me anywhere from $200-250. Then I would've had to buy a different stand.

Thanks every one.

Yes, it's just the tank - no extras. Iv been watching craigslist. Most are not what I'm looking for. There was a 75 gallon with iron stand for 200... but since I was leaning towards having a custom built stand I thought it made more sense to just get a new one at that price.
