Default Good price for 90 gallon tank?

What's a good price for a used 90 gallon aquarium? I put an ad on craigslist stating i'm looking for a big aquarium and a guy contacted me and said he has a 90g for $200. Is that good? Too high?, about right for that size?

is it just the tank? if so its a bit high, you should ask him how thick the glass is and if its scratched up. still If I where you I would shop around, I see on Craigslist all the time 125 gallon tanks for about a bill but that's just the tank with nothing else

I emailed him and asked if it comes with lighting, stand and everything. I'm just waiting for a reply. I asked for a picture too.

I can buy a new 90gal glass tank (nothing else) for about 215 IIRC. So asking 200 for tank only is pretty high. For refference, I just bought a 75 with light, stand, canopy, and filter for 140. If I was you, I'd see if you could shoot for 175 for a complete setup, much less for tank only.

I'll see what I can talk him to
If it's just the tank I'll see if he will go down more on it, and if not I think i'll keep searching.

Man I'm glad I asked you guys first before jumping at it Trying to find a large tank for the cichlids I want is hard.

ps: so 140 for a 75g is ok? I've seen a few of them too.

EDIT: He just emailed me back and said it comes with a stand and canopy. He's sending me a picture after he gets home.

considering the filter it came with was almost brand new and would cost 200, I was happy with the price. although the floresent fixture looked a little rough. I ended up replacing it with one of the marineland's LED fixture.

Ok here's the photos of it:






Does it look good to you? I think I might wait and see if I can find another one.

lawl at above. tank doesn't look bad from just that one pic, the stand looks like it's been beat on pretty hard. I wouldn't trust it holding the roughly 900 pound tank at all. If you really want a 90 gallon, see if he will give you a deal on tank only and you could possibly build a stand, or have someone else build one to your liking.

^Ok I'll do that. My dad built my 55g stand strong enough to hold 2 elephants.

Also I found a 125 Gallon Aquarium with stand for $100. The only problem is it was put on there July 25, so I don't know if it's still available until the person emails me back.

don't be affraid of waiting around for another good deal like that 125g deal, that's why I hate Craigslist sometimes cause right after I think I found the best deal the day after I get it I find a even better deal, but at the same time don't let a once in a lifetime deal go cause your waiting on a better deal.
