You can get bigger and better quality - delivered and new on ebay, £600 for that is a rip off, if it came with all the gear it would still be expensive.

Really? I've been after a nice Oak Aquarium for a while now and couldn't really find anything. Any links?

i've been looking for a fish tank to match my furniture and this is just like it but it would be cheaper to just to buy the sideboard and put the tank on top at this sort of price.

Have a look on ebay, aquarist classifieds - for the basic item you want, then visit the site direct where there's often the same thing cheaper or with a discount code... you'll find some with inbuilt filtration/lighting/heating too - the filtration is very light work though so worth adding a decent external - but all depends on your desired set up of course.

Spot on, you pay the premium for the specially designed "tank stand" - you can buy a decent quality wood cabinet in any style you want then plonk the tank on, save a small fortune... it may need some rework on the back panel for pipes etc, but it's quick and easy.... Overall - best way for buying a tank etc - second hand on the fish keeping sites - aquarist classifieds etc, that way you can get a fantastic bargain, bigger, better, complete set up for a fraction of the price you'd spend on a basic shop tank, hood and stand - made from melamine... I picked up a quality 6ft, 2 x externals, 4 more filters, R.O, halides, loads more gear for £180, asked the guy if he could deliver - gave him £20, got well over £1k of tank and gear, for £200 you get a junky fake wood fish tank these days. Always have an idea of what you want and aim for that set up - don't buy a small tank, then a slightly bigger tank etc etc or you'll waste £££££ on the way to the final set up... Been in the fish business for..... 20+ years, been doing the fish for over 30 years.

Expensive ... i am happy with my second hand cabinet just got for 100£

Yeah i got a great tank silly cheap a few year ago, i'm redecorating my whole house now so i want a new tank set up so I can move my old one if that makes sense. Its stopping me decorating one of my rooms at the minute. I want to get a decent one now to match all my furniture so going to get a sideboard and tank to suit and as you say just modify it to suit.

Just make some notes on the sizes, style etc and browse the sites - see what's available, also, think about the final set up - fish etc, a lot of peeps just go to the LFS and end up buying what they are told to buy - end up with mass amounts of live bearers, cannibal fish, nocturnal predators etc If needs must you can get the shop to order in your fish or even use a online verified aquatic store (don't use ebay) - where the fish are much cheaper but you have to pay around £20 for the registered courier... at the end, you'll have the aquarium you wanted then the perfect community tank - oh - worth joining a few Fish groups on Facebook too for impartial advice, I wouldn't trust any advice from a Aquatic Store as they just want the money you have in their till - and will say anything to get it there... If in doubt - drop me a PM
