Anyone recommend good places to look for 90-120 gallon tanks? Preferably at good prices

I have found Tong's dry goods prices to be a bit high. Best thing to do for tanks & such is to go to the smaller mom & pop small stores. There are a few in the Orange County Area.
Two to call for prices are: Pacific Reef in Anaheim (on Lincoln) and Discount Tropical Fish in La Habra. I bought my 100g glass tank from Discount (it was a brand new, name brand, can't remember exactly, maybe Island? Or something that starts with a V?) for approx. $200, which was $20-30 cheaper than everywhere else I looked locally. The great thing about the smaller mom & pops is that many (if not all) will go down in price a little, if you ask nicely, and if you pay in cash, and ESPECIALLY if you are buying several things at once from them.
