Go to www.dangerden.com and build a custom one. They are about the same price but the quality is sooo much better. Heres a pic of mine (old picture of my system):

Yeah, you're better off simply building one from scratch using dangerden parts. It'd actually be a tad more expensive than the bigwater but cheaper than the aquarius and you should get awesome results.
