I'm interested in upgrading to a 6x2x2. I live near Toowoomba and was wondering if anyone may know a cheapest (must be quality, not interested in dodgy tanks) place to get a tank (10ml), hood and cabinet(prefer) or stand from.

I dont mind paying for quality, but if i can get that quality cheaper, well, it gives me more money to get other tank stuff *LOL*

I normally get my tanks from the lfs, but even with the couple of places i've been i've noticed the lfs is the dearest. I really do try to support my lfs, but the price difference is quite large in regards to the tank and such. So while i may not get the tank through them most of the other stuff will be bought there.

I also really need some one that preferrably will deliver and help get the tank in place, i have a bad back and that size tank would kill me, though even if i didnt have a sore back i'm pretty sure i would be struggling. I'd rather not end up with a cabinet/stand and shattered tank :(

So far Starks Aquaria has been the best deal, is there anywhere else i can check out?

Scotty has a shop. I think it's Aquarium Wholesale Warehouse. Actually, maybe it's not, but it's something like that. He knows tank building better than anyone, and tends to rip himself off. He's been building tanks since before there was silicone. I've got his first silicone tanks, which are now forty years old! You can be sure of his honesty and quality.

I've bought smaller tanks off them before, and still have them, no probs.

Their tanks have a decent warrenty on them, i looked over the tanks, stands/cabinets & hoods they had there, looked great, no sharp edges on tank etc. They offered me the best deal, well the deal that suited me, i wanted a few things different to their norm in regards to the cabinet and hood. :)

Anyway just gotta sell my motorbike now lol
