Is this tank worth it?

I am considering buying this tank. Is it worth the $500 that I am offering? I will probably take it and drill it. Lights sound good and the tank and sump look nice. What do you think? I am not going to pay the $700, but I think it's worth $500.

75 gallon Salt Water Fish Tank

He says it's a brand new 125 gallon skimmer. I don't see it in the sump either. I think the deal is going to be $500 without the skimmer. But, I have a coralife 125 super skimmer that I just picked up on craigslist anyway. The lights with new bulbs have to be worth a few bucks too. I am excited. I see it at 10:00 tomorrow morning. If it is all good I will pick it up this weekend. My 29 gallon is not big enough after only 2 months! Think I will keep them both up though. My plan is to drill this one. I think from the description that it is hob overflow. I think I will drill and hard plumb it. Will have to keep the rock in buckets with power head and heaters while I drill and get the plumbing set up.

$500 with no skimmer is still one heck of a deal.

So, I went and looked at the tank today and it is what I want. I will be picking up the rock probably friday and put it in a 55 gallon drum that I have with water, powerhead and heater. Will pick up the tank and rest of it on Saturday. I talked to my LFS and they are going to drill the tank for me. I was going to get a kit from glass-holes.com for $100 but, I think I prefer the way my LFS is going to do it. They are going to drill the bottom and put in overflows and returns for $220. I like the idea of the durso standpipe. I think it will be quieter and less trouble. I will probably just sell the HOB overflow that I am getting with the tank to recoup some of the money spent. Once I pick up the tank and start the setup I will start a build thread. Thanks for all the advise! I can't wait to get started!
