I found what I think is a decent deal on craigslist and I need to know your opinions.
-55g tank with overflow
-custom built stand (nothing crazy nice but it works)
-protein skimmer (didnt say brand,but it looks cheap and I cant seem to identify it in comparison to others online)
-2x koralia powerheads (dont know which ones)
-300 watt heater
-mag5 return pump
He wants $250 for that.
He said he can keep it up and running with water so I can make sure it all works and does not leak. That in general seems like a decent deal, even if the protein skimmer is crap. I wanted a 40 breeder, but didn't want to drill and I think I can deal with the smaller footprint.
In addition, he also has an LED
light for it. It's described as 48x3 watt light with two ballasts and he will give it to me for $150. All I know is his description. From what I can tell it looks very blue from pictures but he didn't list the brand or anything. From the pictures of his tank he was growing at least lps
under it. Hard to tell how well it was going because resolution was bad, but it looked to work. If the light isnt powerful enough could I just supplement with more LED
later on or mix with t5ho?
I am looking at it today. I want to know your opinions on whether or not to get the light and in general if its a good deal. I know this may be tough as you have such little information on the light and such.
