I have the option to buy a 90 gal sw tank

I have the option to buy a 90 gal sw tank with extras like lights, live rock,coral, sand, and fish . They are asking 350 for all. I am in process of setting up a 75 gal and I am not sure if this would be a good move for me to get the live rock, water, and sand. They sent me some pictures and i will attach to this post. The tank looks alittle rough to me but once again remember im and new at this and not very sure. Any advice is appricated. I dont want to make a bad investment.


thanks all
Josh

I'd do it in a heart beat and then turn around and sell whatever you don't need on Craigslist a month later

The seller says the rock needs blown off it has some brown algae, coraline algae and several polyp that have be neglected. 5 fish flame angle,coral beauty,2 perculas, and a damsel. 2 -175w halogen with 2- 65w compact. Can I clean off the rock with powerhead and resuse. The sand is pretty dirty I was just goin to buy live sand and use that. Am I able to do this ?
Thanks all

I'm sure you could use a large bucket of saltwater and scrub it off- then shake it off in another bucket of clean saltwater.

As far as the sand- I wouldn't bother with live. Of course- even though time consuming- you could just clean his sand to use in your tank.

Are you planning on a reef tank or a FOWLR? The Angela shouldn't go in a reef tank.
