Starting my first saltwater reef tank

Hey guys.. I am looking for a large tank and came across this on eBay near me.

180 Gallon Fish Tank Stand and Equipment | eBay

The specs given are actually for a 210 gallon tank. It has overflows and comes with a sump and stand. What do you think I should pay for this or what it is worth?

Want to start a fowl or reef tank.. my first.

Thanks!

Question is do you want to spend lots of money on a used tank? How long have they had it set up for? Thinking of seals getting on a bit etc,..

That is true. But it is the tank, stand, and sump. I have been calling around and a new tank that is reef ready would run me about 1100 dollars at least. Then I would have to either buy a stand, which run about 400 for that size. And the sump would cost me around 350 I suppose plus plumbing.

It would save me about 1400 dollars in which more money I could spend on protein skimmer, lights, ect.
