Caitlynn's 75 gallon reef build!

After deliberation I decided I just simply can't fit a tank larger than 75g right now and I found this deal on CL that I wanted opinions on. The person said the lab a d filter and stand and obviously tank are included but idk. They want 350 but said will take a better offer. What do you all think is a good offer?

Yah that's not a bad deal I would bargain with them and say $250 or $300 always start with a lowball an work up

I can't compare to the prices in Florida but here in Indiana I bought a 125 with a crappy stand but it had a ton of coral 6 fish wet dry filter and skimmer with a bunch of other stuff for 540 so I would pay 200 for it if your going to go saltwater your gonna have a lot more money invested on the other stuff you'll need

That's the thing depends on location. Wasn't thinking about that one.

350 is a good price down here but since I'm gonna need the extra cash to put into turning it into a SW tank I offer 200. She said 285 was lowest they would go. I think. I'm gonna offer 250 and see what happens.

I did she won't budge from 285 not even to 275. I just asked her if it was painted and about the standard 75 gallon because you are right it looks awful short for a 75 gallon. I might keep looking. I want the traditional long one

Yeah I decided too. The lady said it was painted but you can take it off. No clue how that's supposed to work and this tank has funny dimensions. 36" by 20" by 24" is what she said I'd was. I want either a 55 or a 75. What do you think of this 55 I found?
