I've heard those are good but that one doesn't have a pump

I did some reading on that one and its for up to 200 gallons. Your skimmer size will depend on the space for it in the sump

I'm not sure in that light. Might grow LPS and softies but I'm not sure on SPS.

Thats what I assumed. He said they are bridgelux LEDs. My plans as of now is to mainly grow LPS and softies. Would buying this be worth it to hold me over for a while until I have the funds to either add more lights to supplement or to buy a whole new fixture? Or should I just hold off?

The skimmer looks like a seaclone or similar (crap), but I don't see how you are going to be able to fit a much better one in that sump without cutting some of that euro-bracing away.
IMO, this guy already has this system and realized he needed something bigger/better, so he's selling it. I feel that you are going to be feeling the same way about it in a short time. Someone before me mentioned the front to back dimension- the footprint of a reef tank makes or breaks it.
I would rather have either a 40 breeder, or a 75, as mentioned.

I realize the downfall of the width. I was looking into both 55 and the 40 breeder because that's around the size I want. I live in a pretty small house and the width to the 55 is somewhat helpful in keeping it closer to the wall and taking up less travel room. The 6 inches I lose in the tank I'll gain in front of the tank. I worked with a 14g for a couple years so the width was similar. It's just like 3 of my old tank side by side. Aqua scaping wasn't real fun but I managed to get good at optimizing the space. As for the sump I'm not crazy about his design. I have debated making my own depending on the space the stand has, but that might be down the road when I have the funds and the time. It's a tough decision and I think I'm gonna base it off how it looks in person and what the seller has to say about it.
