Do you know of any complete systems for large tanks?

I know there are plenty of stylish complete systems for small tanks (fluval edge, eheim aquaclear etc). I was wondering if anyone knows of any for larger tanks. I was thinking something over 40 gallons that comes integrated with decent lights/filter etc thats better than the walmart/petco 55gallon starter kits.

Most people here will say part it out yourself and it'll be more interesting for you. It's all about the journey I say - once you get those fish in, it's nice but the rest is water changes and maintenance. Shopping for aquarium stuff is interesting and you should be able to pick out a nice 40+ gallon tank, stand, filter, and light without too much headache... and save a buck while you do that as all in ones are generally higher costs.

But to answer your question, I thought Innovative Marine had some cool looking all in one tanks: http://innovative-marine.com/nuvo-aquarium/index.html

They have ones up to 38 gallons and look pretty modern. Not sure how to order one but just here to show you it

I think it's a bot. If you really are interested in a complete system maybe you could check out red sea max? They are reef aquariums and come in 34 and 65 gallon sizes, but with a few mods they should be simple enough to adapt to a planted tank. But they are EXPENSIVE compared to something you can do better yourself...

Of course there are. It's called ADA.

I think there are so many options for larger tanks that there are probably not too many 'complete set ups' being marketed. Each 'complete set up' is quite expensive, and bulky, so brick and mortar stores are not likely to carry that sort of thing in larger sizes. Most stores will work with you and put together a package that you specify, though.

Once you figure out exactly how you want to run your tank you need to decide which equipment will do exactly that for you.

I've seen some Fluval systems upwards of 65+ gal. Never seen one in person, but while they appeared expensive to begin with, I ended up spending more on my system piecing it together. Granted, I got exactly as I wanted with cool pieces. I don't regret making my own setup.
