I don't know if they're good deals, because I have never researched tanks bigger than 75g....I just have one question....

Will you be comfortable with the height of those tanks?

I almost bought a 55g once (21" high), but decided not to because I would have a very had time reaching in (5'6", short arms ). Several days later a friend of mine gave me his abandoned 40g long (48"x13"x16") for free. I'm so glad I didn't buy the 55g.

I don't buy new tanks, I just have people leak test it in their house for 2 days before I buy it

That way, I'll be sure they're not lying about the tank being good.

Sounds like a good deal to me. Usually 120 (perfecto) tanks run about 350 and stands about 250. (Give or take depending on your part of the country).

If you think you'll be happy with it I say go for it. I had a 90 gal. perfecto for a number of years and it worked just fine. I like AGA construction a little better but you'll pay a little more for it.

If your not 100% on all of the "extras" (filter, light, etc..) make up your own list of components and see what kind of deal they can give you.
