Good Deal?

There is a 70 Gallon tank with glass top and light strip for $200 in the local paper. It also has stand. I am looking to setup a saltwater aquarium.

Is this a good deal? Anything I should look out for?

Thanks,

Pazman

A bit high for a used tank. Offer 150 and settle on 175. Make sure you get a goo history of the tank, including if it has had any leaks or hashad any medications added to it (especially copper).

Thanks all. I appreciate the advice. Sorry lando, I'm not familiar with goo. Can you explain?

Thanks,

Pazman

LOL.

I guess I should have been able to figure it out. Here I am thinking goo must be an acronym for somethings. My bad.

Thanks again.
