250 for long term. What comes with the 180? Rock? Livestock? If it does- purchase both- then transfer everything to the 250 when done building the stand and then resell the 180

Same price? Definitely the 250 then. That way you can also build the stand just the way you want it.

I'd say the 250g. It is the weekend, he may be tied up.
