Hi all! As you may know I have been looking to get a 200 gal tank (or bigger) I found this one and want to know if it's a good deal or if I should keep looking. I live in Houston TX.

But that's the thing I can't find a place that sells 200 gal tanks or bigger without breaking the bank (start at 3000) in my area.

Right off the bat I would say no. 6ft and 18 in wide would need about 3ft of height to make 220gals. That looks to me to be a 125, 135 or 150g tops. Keep looking.

Houston HAS to have outlets that sell standard 180g tanks for 7-800 bucks. Find a store that sells Marineland or Aqueon tanks.

I have tried looking online and haven't found anything. And the one place I did find was a custom fish tank builder type place. There is one other place but their website sucks so I have to go in person (which I can't so without hubby as I have a 2 yr old and new born).

Go to the Marineland website, enter your zip code and nearest dealers will be shown

It's not to bad. I'm a full time mom so to me it's become easy and part of life but my hubby can't do it without me around he goes nuts. Haha

I looked and all the stores near me who sell marineland stuff are petco or small shops like that. And I have asked the 4 stores near me they said they don't carry or sell any tanks above 55 gal. :/ my closest place I might be able to find one is 3 1/2 hrs away (or longer depending on traffic).
