should I?

There is a lady next door who is selling used 46 bow $250, 60 hex $250, 55gal $200 all with cheap stands should I buy one OR wait and get the 65gal $170 and home built stand that I orig planned. Personally I don't think any of these are an exceptional value please correct me if I am wrong. Keep in mind I plan to plant it. Thanks

I think those prices are a little high. For example, a friend of mine just bought an AGA 46 bowfront tank for $125.00 out the door. I believe I would hold out for that 65 if I were you

What JED said.
Once you become aware of them, you see used tanks all the time.
It is not at all unusual to find good-sized tanks for free, or under $100.
People just want to get them out of their basements or garages, or don't want to move them.
You just have to be willing to wait until the right deal comes along.
New tanks themselves are not all that expensive.
And those are all kinda off-sized tanks.
If I'm paying more than a token amount for a tank, I'm going to buy new.
