Someone wants to sell it to me, he has it up and runing now but hes moving to a new place with a built in tank.

He says:

Sorry, lets try again.

I have a 55gallon tank, someone wants to sell me the stuff listed above. What do you think its worth. He asked me for $500 for it. I just want opinions on if you all think its worth that or if thats a great buy?

Thanks

I would say 500 is a good deal if all is in good working condition. The rock alone would retail for $390 at $6/lb.

Yeah I'd start with $400 (so you're not insulting him) and see where you can finish.
