    What's a good site to buy rimless tanks? I would like to upgrade a 90 gallon tank.

    I have never bought from a site. To be honest I am a big believer of local reefing sites, you can get a great deal and not pay a fortune

    Way easier.

    You're better off getting a tank locally. Whatever you would save buying online you'd make up for in shipping.

    acrylic may scratch, but you can actually buff the scratches out. In a glass tank you cant.

    Have you looked on craigslist? Or checked with one of the manufacturers of the tank you're looking for? I have a DSA and a Deep Blue and love them both.
