Default Advice on 100+ Gallon Tank



I've decided to move up from my little 29 gallon fish tank (one clown
fish and three other fish -damsel(sp?)). Anyway, I want to move up to 100
gallon tank and start keeping a little more difficult fish than clown fish.

In the two pet stores I went to, I only found one 100 gallon tank, and
it was actually 110 gallon. It came on a black stand that had the center
open. Price $500.00

Now my questions:

Can you order fish tanks on the net? Big tanks like 100 gallon plus?
Can you get them cheaper off the net or would I be better off finding one at
a pet store? How much should one pay for a 100 gallon tank?

What kind of filtration is best for a 100 gallon tank? Right now on my
little 29 gallon I have one of those penguins hanging on the back. As long
as I change the water and filters every so often the clown and other three
fish seem to do fine. Would two or three of those type of filters be
sufficient for keeping a little more advanced fish like angels, tangs,
etc... I also want to try my hand at keeping an anemone. Yes, I know it's
hard, but I would like to try to keep a simple one. Can one survive with a
hang on the back filter? I know about lighting, so I don't need info about
lights. I'm prepared to spend some money on the lights. The fish and
corral/rock I want to keep will be the easier/hardier fish. Nothing too
advanced. I'm just wondering if a hang on the back filter can provide good
results on a 100 gallon tank.

What about heating? Will one or two inside the tank glass heaters work
good for 100 gallon tank?

Would appreciate info because I have the money to spend now on a big
tank, and don't want to waist my money.

Thanks!

You CAN buy tanks on the net - in fact, you can buy one from me! Let me know
exactly what dimensions you're looking for and I'll get you a quote that I
guarantee is WAY lower than anything you can find in a store.

Look for a used one in the newspaper, bargain paper, etc.
