Buy a new setup or use my own?

Hi. I have a 55g that I intended to use for my SW upgrade from 29g. BUT I will have to wait til I find a 125 to move the current occupants of the 55g.

So I was thinking and looking and I found this setup on ebay

AQUARIUM 55 GALLON SALTWATER OR FRESH WATER COMPLETE | eBay

This way I dont have to buy new lights either. Between his rock and mine I would have more than enough. I already have a remora skimmer and I can always get a new hob filter since the one included isnt too good.

Any thoughts? I'm waiting on calling him cause I wasnt too sure if it sounds like a good idea.

I now have four. 2 tens for qt, 29 reef and 55 cichlid. I just made the necessary room for a 4 foot tank. Just fits LOL

I figure it will take a week or two of running both setups til I'm satisfied with water quality. With the amount of LR there hopefully wouldnt be a cycle.

I called the guy and am going over tomorrow to check it out. He couldnt remember the name on the lights but he said they were really nice and new. This is so cool! LOL I wasn't even looking for SW setups and here I am now. Gonna have to make a new build thread soon! I hope anyway.

Thanks for the input guys.
