is this worh the price?

ive been talking with this guy since last night about this setup he wants 600 obo is it worh it? its a 180G with stand and everything it has i included below so tell me what you guys think www.keithbarnett.photoshop.com




180 Gal fish aquarium, and stand (no hood, or live stock) with dual internal plumed overflows previously used as a marine aquarium. Included is a large trickle filter (wet dry), a matured home made nitrate filter, Triton5 5000 pump that can be used both in-line or submersed, heater, glass canopyís, pvc plumbing, at least 80 lbs of live sand, and crushed coral mix ( good for both marine and African cichlids) various pvc valves, and you may also be able to use the existing plumbing depending on how easy it is for me to remove it. I also will give away a 4 ft light strip with 40 watt florescent 50/50 bulb, large nets, and a large algae scrubber with screw on stick. Non powered protien skimmer that attaches to the sump, large piece of artificial coral decoration that rises from the tank floor to the surface, and a smaller piece of artifical coral decoration ($200.00 value alone). There is nothing else you will need to purchase to get this tank up and running.

Looks clean and all but seems a little high in price to me. is it for sw of fw? Cause if you wanna use it for sw I think the lights might not cut it.
