    New tank from Perfecto!!

    I went by als kanata today and was asking about some tanks. Apparently you can order a 300 gallon tank from perfecto now. You can get it drilled, and with starphire glass too. The demensions on it are 72x36x27.
    This is great news to me... I thought the 265 was big enough but I like the depth more on this tank and I could still use the corner overflow.
    Price at als, drilled with corner overflow is around 1800$... Not too bad but I think I can get it better than that else where.
    150 (reef) 56 (FOWLR)
    75 gal sump 25 gal refuge
    300lbs CaribSea Aragonite Reef Sand
    280 lbs of Assorted rock
    Tunze 9010 skimmer, Current USA 48" Fixture
    1 cleaner shrimp, pistol shrimp
    50 blue legged hermit, 15 nausaurus/astrea snails
    Yellow tang, 2 clowns, 1 blue chromis, 1 yellow watchman 1 corral beauty
    Colt coral, Frogspawn, Bubble, Donut coral, Mushrooms,Starburst green, Green and orange polyps an Umbrella coral, Purple Long Tentacle Anemone.

    Check BA Montreal, normally their prices are ALOT cheaper then around here... eg:900$ for a 210g with overflows vs 1500$ Innes.

    Oh I know what you mean... I will look at all options before buying a new tank. You have told me before that als montreal is cheaper and I have heard the same thing from others too.
    Well, in due time... Wife isn't too gung ho on the idea of a 265 let alone a 300. All I have to say is "too bad for you" :b10: As I get slapped upside my head...
    Oh yes, it will be mine... HAHAHAHAHAHA...

    Not sure about that.Big Al's is the middle man and make their cut on the deal.

    I'm lucky that there are tank builders in the Toronto area.

    Give John a call at North America Fish Breeders.It may be worth a long drive if you save enough money.
