Hi my name is Paul and my wife and I bought 4 RES's impulsively as I am sure many of you have. However, we love having them and are in the process of upgrading their habitat. Looking at 120 gal tanks. Wondering if anyone in the Massachusetts area might have one for sale. Asking price for tank only at Petsmart is 550.00 on sale. What think you all...??? We love our turtles and are glad this forum is available. Thanks

Have you considered 300 gallon stock tanks? They are cheaper the only downside is you can't see them like you can in display tanks. I would try Craig's list for glass tanks. And welcome !

Welcome to the site Paul! Yes, new tanks larger than 55 gallons will be expensive. Craigslist is great for tanks, though you might need to be very patient for a 120 gallon tank.

Are the turtles still hatchlings?
