Flat back hex
I have an old 55g flat back hex that I've recently setup after 20+ yrs out of the hobby. It work and holds water but im a little leary of it because of its age and some checking in the acrylic. So I'm looking at the possibility of having to get a new one. If I do that it will likely be larger 75 or 100g.
I'd like to get it such that I can use the stand that I built for my 55. I know I will have to brace it up for the additional weight.
Who would you recommend I talk to for pricing on a new tank? I found a 75 in similar dimensions as my 55. But if I do 100 it likely have to be custom.

You can typically find great deals on standard 75 gallon tanks with the stand included, both new and used.
That might be the best budget option for you.If you take your time to do the research FIRST, you can successfully set-up and keep ANY type of aquarium with ease.
