It does look a little rough. But not anything a little cleaning won't take care of. Heck of a deal if everything works.

HOBs are actually VERY BENEFICIAL in a 10g saltwater to get the water moving- anything that is below 40g can have modified high output HOBs instead of canisters- this is coming from personal experience.... The only thing is you will need a water circulator/ powerhead and at least 3 to 4X the filtration. Lots of live rock too. Oh, and put a mesh screen on your intake tube on your filter or you will have to clean sand and salt out EVERY day.

Bio filter
Protein skimmer

Heater
Rock and sand
Salinity guage
Not sure what type of light

pretty good deal for 150$ I think

Ok I have a couple questions now. He said all I need is salt and Ph balance and cycling stuff. What should I get

And everything in the picture looked covered in algae and he drained it so how should I clean everything before setting it up?

Yep, rinse out and scrub the sand, tank, filters, pumps and rock in water. You can get a buffer if you need it (I like Kent Superbuffer) but that can wait. All you need to cycle a saltwater tank is an uncooked shrimp. I'd get a book like the Idiots Guid to Mini Reefs. Having a real book on hand is indispensable.
