What would this be worth?

I haven't decided if I would run SW or convert it over to FW yet, but since the owner used it for SW I wanted to post it in the correct forum. What would a tank like this typically be worth.

It's 4x2x2 and I have no idea what type or how large the sump is.

"120 gallon saltwater set-up with 2 metal halides. Sump set-up with large pondmaster pump (never been used)."

You already have good light with the MH which is a large expense in SW so you should go with salt.

Do SW. As stated above you already have the lighting which money wise would have been a big chunk of the set up cost.

I'm giving the guy $200 for everything. It does not have the sump or any plumbing, although I have a spare 29 I can convert into a sump and plumbing is plumbing.. trip to Lowes.

I think I'm going to set it up as FW because I really want to see if my Dovii will come out of their skittishness in a larger tank. I'm going to keep the lights but just swap out the bulbs for now. If I decide to remove the Dovii I might go SW with it. There is a salt water LFS literally across the street from my neighborhood and they had a clown trigger fish and some type of a grouper ( I love groupers).. The trigger was awesome too though, seemed very aggressive. I'm not saying I'd get those so don't flame me.. just saying they peaked my interest


Oh yea.. I also saw a green wolf eel? That thing was awesome as well.

I'll be able to go salt in the future.. so it's not totally out of the question.
