Please Help with this Purchase!

I have never looked at a SW tank setup before, but I found a really good deal. Here is the description:

Hi! I am selling this cool little saltwater (can be used for fresh water as well) fish tank. It is an Oceanic BioCube model and it's water capacity is 29 gallons. It's really cool because the filtration/circulation system is pretty much all built in and it has a nice cover with a lighting system built in as well. This makes it very sleek, organized and easy to maintain! It would be a great starter saltwater tank for someone interested in trying to raise saltwater fish and creatures. It is pretty compact and very light making it easy to move around. It comes with everything for the main light and filtration system: Hood top with double 36 watt Coralife bulbs, probably 30 or 40 bio-balls for the wet/dry filtration, power head with tubes for connection, saltwater hydrometer, heater, thermometer, lots of fish food, a little charcoal, and more! I gotta get rid of this since I have no more room in my place so make me an offer or feel free to ask call me and ask questions!

All of this for $75. I will go look at the tank in 18 hours, do you guys have any recommendations for questions I should be asking? I mainly know about FW tanks, but I can't pass on this deal! Please help asap.

See if it holds water first off. Fill it up with water outside or something and see if it leaks. Make sure the lighting turns on. And clean out the bioballs before using them. Also, scrap them once the tank is established with live rock and sand, consider putting chaeto in that section instead. So long as it's water tight and the lighting works I'd go for it.

I run electrical appliances underwater and enjoy injecting things with Kalk filled syringes.
