That is not a good deal IMO. You will have to get rid of the fish to let the ich cycle through for 6 to 8 weeks, or get a qt to put them in for the same amount of time.

A 55g tank and stand combo is about half that price new, and you loosing the 100bucks from the lfs. So in reality it is going to cost you $700.

How old is all this stuff?

What kind of condition is it in? tank/stand/sump

Good choice. I am setting up a 55 and I have everything I need except lr, and I have spent around $400 (I did a lot of diy stuff). Good luck!

the only cheap thing I intend to have is the topfin aquarium I have.. it should be fine with all that rock and sand shouldn't it? but it was free..so I'm not complaining.
