Craigslist pickup. How'd I do?

I picked up a 70g reef setup today for $170. Included was the tank, stand, canopy w/ fans, Marineland halide fixture and bulbs, sump and pump, timers, hoses, etc. This will be my first saltwater build to go with my 55g and 6g Edge tanks.

It will be a long running project since this was a spur of the moment buy and I have a lot of reading to do on reef setups.

Fantastic find. What are the dimensions on the tank? Looks really deep (front to back) that'll make for great rock scaping.. little jealous now haha

So I'm bumping this because I've figured out that I have no idea what the hole on the back of the tank is for. It's drilled in the overflow with a threaded fixture on it.

Other than that I should be a week or so from water and rock in this thing.
