WTB big tank setup

Big for a planted tank anyway. I'm looking for 75g or 125g. Had a 4x2x2 120g before, and I had a hard time reaching the substrate in the back. I'm pretty short. So looking for something less than 24" tall. Wanting something with furniture grade stand and canopy, possibly with filtration.

I'm in Crossville, but willing to travel some for the right setup.

Mostly junk around here. The only nice one I've seen, the guy thinks he's gonna get full retail for. :/

Okay, cool. Thanks! I'd like to get the one I saw, but I don't think he's gonna come down. Not to mention he doesn't seem to want to sell it too bad. Answered first text asking if he still had it, the never answered anything else.

You could try Nashville, too. I've seen lots of large tanks lately.

Oh, and I've measured the spot it's going in, and I'm definitely wanting a 125g. So that has made my search even more difficult.

Clarksville also has big tanks from time to time. Some people are reasonable, others want retail or better.
Good luck

EDIT: I don't know what your budget is but I did a quick search and here's what I found:

Damn, if I had the room and extra cash I would scoop this up:

I see tanks that size near Cookeville pretty regularly on golsn.com. Good luck with your search.

Don't use a good email on that one. It's a "honey pot" used by email spammers. They post a deal "too good to be true", you email them, then you'll get multiple emails from various others about "deals".
