Pacific aquarium and fish town USA in bayside does mAintenance work but I'm sure the fee will be sky high.

I would go the route of DIY

I agree, the price would be 2x-3x what it normally is for the equipment alone, let alone the installation fees. I asked pacific for a tank and they quoted me over $500 for a 90g.

I do not have the new tank. I am, as you might have guessed, in an apartment building and do not want to risk setting up the tank myself. I will tank down the old tank and have the "professionals" do the plumbing.

If you check out manhattanreefs.com they have local vendors who do this type of set up.

I'd say go to Ridgewood Aquarium in NJ, but they are ADA and are probably expensive. Definitely try Rt.4 Aquarium in Elmood Park, NJ. Ask for Mike. He is trying to get that store on the map and is pretty competitive. I've seen his custom work, and it's nice. Worth a shot...
