Is this a good deal

I went to my lfs today and spotted a beautiful 60 gallon with black oak stand and lights. It included the following:
90 pounds ls
x2 maxi jet 900
water pump-forgot what kind
wet dry with all hardware/overflow
250 watt heater
hydor oscillating attachment
berlin air lift skimmer
total 660.00
It came with more stuff I just can't remember right now.....
OH yeah, it also came with salt. Do you think this is a good deal?

get a list of what the tank comes with and reserch the dry good items on the internet. I bet you would save money just buying the tank/stand at the LFS, sand from homw Depot and other stuff on-line.

most 55 gallon tanks you can get from peaple who have lost interest and will sell them cheap!!!! Check your thrifty nickle and other ads in newspapers and garage sales. I got 2 55 gal for $25 with lots of equipment. Most LFS will pay that for the tanks then sell them for 100-200 and more if it comes with equipment.
