Is it a 55 (48" x 12" footprint) or 50 breeder (36" x 18" footprint)?

If it's a 55, I don't think it's a good deal. Petco has a sale a couple of times a year where you can get the tank for $55 new. The UG filter and screen top don't add much value to me.

If it's a 50 breeder, see if you can get him down to $50. They are harder to find and are (IMO) easier to decorate and have more surface area per gallon.

Having said al that, you are in Alaska, so I'm not sure what kind of access you ahve to stuff versus the contiguous 48.

Yeah, its all a bit more expensive up here. In store a 55 costs in the realm of +100$. It turns out its a 45 long. 48"L*12"W*17.5"T. But I still bought it all for 60$.

Just found another "year old" 125g for 200$. With stand and hood. No extras but still not a bad deal. Going out in the next two weeks to check it out and if it's in good condition I'm bringing it home. Score!!! Haha.

Shoot at this rate I'll have enough tanks to trade for a 300g soon enough haha.

Not sure how CL is in your area, but I would NOT pay that for that light. I personally would hold out for higher quality lights at that price.

He is in Alaska. Probably not easy finding aquarium stuff up there is it?

Are you kidding me? We have one of the nicest stores I have ever seen. Ever... Alaska coral finatics has anything you could ask for. Tim even has his international shipping licence

Never heard of coral fanatics. I don't know about many fish places besides petco and pet zoo around here. If you could tell me about the places you shop at that'd be great.

If I had the room, I snap this up! And I bet I could talk them down on the price too. Although $25 isn't that bad to began with.
