I just replaced my tank, keeping the old frame and electronics, etc. The tank was about $160 - saving me about $400. Not sure if that is what you are talking about or not.

My old tank had some sort of weeping leak that was getting worse and worse. The new tank has the Styrofoam surround versus the old fiberglass insulation.
