Need opinions ASAP

Hey guys, I was just curious as if I could get some help. My wife and I are moving next week and I am going to be upgrading my tank, since I have to take it down anyway. I currently have a 40breeder reef. I am thinking anything 75g or larger. I have found some great deals on Craigslist. One in particular is sticking out in my mind. Could I get some feedback on this one?



150 Gallon Saltwater tank setup



Does this seem like a good deal? Should I be trying to find someone selling their whole setup? Should I just try to find a used tank and buy equipment for it over time? I really want to keep tangs. Thank you

I would say the tank alone is worth the price and when you add everything else that is included seems like a heck of a deal imo.

That's what I thought too. Worried about the age of the tank and that it isn't a drilled tank.

Well I am personally not familiar with drilled tanks but it looks like its been cared for and even if in the event it needed to recaulked you would still be coming out ahead.

Even if you only took the equipment and rock an bought another tank it would be a deal. The light and rock are worth more then that not including the ro, filter and skimmer

I don't believe that would be much of an issue if it has been cared for and treated well

Its a good deal because that rock might be close to 300 dollars and that light is a couple of hundred the skimmers proable 200 don't worry about the tank you can always get a new one sometimes petland has a dollar a gallon sale.
