Are you sure he isnt scammming you? You have to read the description VERY carefully and look at his feedback, and the dates on them to make sure they arent fake feedback.

If it is a local pick up just do not pay until you actually see the tank. Sounds like a awesome deal if it is legit.

You have a link to the auction? I have been burned more than once on ebay and once for almost 2000.00. (guitar amp).

Remember, any deal that sounds too good to be true, isn't.

No biggie, I sell and buy on ebay daily.... when you get there is it'll either be nice or not... I wouldnt worry too much, but don't pay paypal or anything until you meet them and make sure it's the deal you are hoping it is. Sounds like maybe they need the money or just wanted it gone & hopefully thats the case and you got a super deal!!!! I got a great deal from someone here just because they wanted to regain there space from empty tanks lol MTS you know? Keep us posted!
