May want to call a local dealer as well, all glass protects them so you will probably get a better price locally, but you need to mention they will be in town and thats when you want your tank so you can get the special.
I talked to a rep last week via my dealer. Prices seemed resonably fair to me.
I spoke with them yesterday on the phone, earlier poster was correct - the pdx trip is just for deliveries / not for show. I don't want to order anything right now, I'm just kicking tires and looking at different configurations.
I took my 90g down last summer, and started a bunch of home remodel projects, which are starting to slow down. Now I'm talking ideas with my spouse regarding 'how big' and 'where' the next one is gonna go
Joel has some nice ones new and used in stock, so does Patrick. I popped into each of their stores in the last few weeks. I always try to spend my cash locally and support the hobby wherever I can.
