Mega Flow tanks

Anyone know about how much a mega-flow 65 gallon tank would be? Drilled, overflow, and ect. I figure around $200 since 65 gallon tanks run around $120 themself.

I pretty sure it was close to $250 with the standpipe kit, that's what I was thinking I'd like before Jeff's 90 poisoned my mind....:D

The place on Monroe in Toledo...(somebody from Toledo help me)... near Franklin Park had better prices on tanks than I found elsewhere, even Gary's or PSP.... not much salt water but lots of FW.:cool:

You're talking about Trilby Tropicals. Which reminds me I need to stop in there again to see if they've got their SW going yet.

That's right I couldn't remember. They were getting started with their SW when I was in. Looked like a nice enough place.

They are on their second attempt right know I believe. Their first attempt was going to be on the wall off to the left when you walk in. Now they bought out the entire front end of the building (to the right as you walk in) and are going to do that whole section in SW.

They must be finally coming along on it. They've added a note about SW to their website, which they've never done before.

"We are in the process of EXPANDING again. We will be adding over 2500 sqft. worth of Saltwater Fish, Corals, Live Rock, and of course the Quality Merchandise to take care of them, and another 1500 gallons+ of Freshwater Fish and Plants. Be sure to stop in for updates."

Well guess ill be calling a few places for prices. Jacks also has good deals on fish tanks so ill have to call them too. As long as its less then $300 ill get it. Don't want to pay a crap load here. ( Won't be up til my other tanks are gone and until I paint and re-do my room )

I was in a few days ago. They're selling salt mix but that was the only thing I saw SW related. Wait, they were selling sunpaq(?) hqi fixtures too. I didn't even see room for more tanks. They've got the back wall full of tanks with nothing in them, but with gravel bottoms and sunken ship decorations in them. They wouldn't put SW fish in there would they? I was going to ask but the lone worker was pretty busy.

Over $300 now but once I get the rest of these tanks sold ill have over $100 more. I might see if my dad will just make me a stand. :)

My point is you can spend about as much as you want. I've looked at stands and canopies @ AA in Columbus you could probably spend $500 easily for a decent quality setup. A run of the mill stand for a 65 should be much less.

Ive seen some also alot. PSP here got in some sweet stands but they charge you can arm and a leg. Also, im going BB. Should be a sweet new start.

Now ive gotta figure out the lighting for a 65 gallon. Since its 36'' its kidna hard to only put 1 mh so I may have to push two mh over the tank. Also checked some prices and it will be around $300 total.

Andrew... it depends what you want but I have a 175W MH over my 58 right now, esentially the same as a 65 except a couple inches shorter, and it's working out pretty good. If you put 2 of them on I'm sure it would be better but not entirely necessary.
