    Just buy one from tropical and marine pets in st. john's......why the facination with getting it from the mainland? The "markup" on the tank from TMP is only because of shipping costs, you won't get one in for much cheaper on your own.

    No, they get there tanks from Tropic Aquaria, they are AGA. I've had a 38 and a 90 from him, both were AGA.

    Atlantic I have spoke to the guys at Eason and he doesnt feel comfortable shipping in a 180g cause apparently shipping is like $800.00???Also theres no promise it'll show up undamaged and if it did he and I would be out alot of$$$.

    I also spoke to pets unlimited and the biggest they can get is a 130g and the person I spoke with seemed like he knew nothing about aquariums and seemed uninterested so I pretty much ruled those guys out.

    Looks like TMP it is I just found it strange when the owner said $1099 for the 180g tank plus $99.00 for each overflow as If it was being assembled for me in particular but I thought AGA were manufactured preassembled with the megaflows??Guess Ill have to check into it somemore.
