Does anyone know the best place to buy a "reef ready" tank here on the island?

I'm on my way lol, retiring to the Victoria area soon and thought I would do some research before I get there. 180 gallon preferrably new but used is ok if in good condition:)

We have a great tank builder here, and several ways to get to them. I just had my tank built by them this summer and I'm really happy with it.

The place on the island charges close to 60% more than Concept aquatics does for the same tank.

Picking one up on the way through Calgary is a privilege I won't have. I drive an SUV and will be fully loaded:(

I did the same and saved and got a custom tank with an external overflow. Local company was confused by the external overflow, how to do one or why you'd want one.

Wow, just chatted with Denny at Concept. Definitely impressed so far. There may be some new tanks under the Christmas tree for me this year ;)
