Good deal?

Someone asked if I wanted this for $350 it is a 29Gal tank that comes with the following
-130W lighting
-New bulbs in unit, plus spare set
-Wet/Dry filter
-Solid wood stand
-Overflow box
-Spray bar
-Power Strips for everything
-Hydrometer, thermometer, extra salt
-Black banded bamboo cat shark, 2 atlantic hermit crabs, a couple smaller hermits, a horseshoe crab, a conch, a giant mexican turbo snail, and a fully established colony of copepods
And the tank is has been fully established for some time now.

Thanks for any advice

If that's what the prices are in your area then I guess its ok. As an example I'm selling a full setup 55g with quad t5 ATI bulbs, remora HOB and fluval canister for $500.

I'd wanna know the make of the lights, the kind, (t5, cp, florescent) etc, the number of bulbs and the skimmer make as well.

Hmmm...a seaclone skimmer is basically garbage. If its a remora, octopus, prizm, bak pak youre good. Theres prob a few i missed lol

Does it have any powerheads?

I'd also be cautious about the lighting. Do you want to make this a reef tank with corals? Or just fish only? is there any live rock or sand coming with it?

I haven';t used one but I can't say I've ever heard of someone having a good one. most people have alot of trouble adjusting it and it's not known to be a good skimmer is all. Thye are also cheap too so if the setup comes with one it doesnt bring much value to the table really
