Craiglist or here. Some LFS' carry used setups too that can be bought pretty cheap. As far as delivery, not too sure.

I'm from NJ so not too sure which stores in NY sell them. Keep looking though. It seems like at least every week someone posts a 40b for sale on here. If it's just a fish only FW tank, you can get very cheap lights separately too. Keep looking!

Tanks are like boats, the minute they leave the store they lose soooo much value! Buying used is so much better as long as the items are in good shape.

You will find the same setup here or on another site used for $100. What kind of lights do you want? Are you just keeping fish or do you want live plants as well?
