amazing deal

Well, I have a friend who was going to sell me a 125 gallon tank.
about a week ago, he called me about a 150 gallon tank. Naturally, I was interested, so I called the person who was selling it and asked to see it. When I did see it I was amazed! The amount of stuff I got is incredible.
I Got:
6 foot, 150 gallon all glass aquarium
6 foot full pine cabinet stand
GIGANTIC fluval canister filter
custom glass hoods
light fixtures + extra lights
3 beautiful peices of driftwood (largest being over a foot long, all of them with slate bases)
15 gallons of gravel
TONS of plants
2 extra HOB 110 gallon filters
4 new heaters ranging 100W-250W
4 air pumps
3 air strips
25 foot long python hose
insane amount of decorations
tons and tons of chemicals (pH up/down and various treatments for diseases)
and 20 Convict cichlids.

I originally thought that i was only getting the tank, stand, hood and filter. I would have been thrilled with those alone! In any event, when I told my friends about the deal, they thought that I was going to get a tank in awful condition. They were totally wrong! Its gorgeous. I touched up the stand with some murphys wood soap and its lovely. All in all, it took about 8 or 9 hours to move, clean, and set up my new tank. I have to say it was worth all the work.

Now, I got so much stuff, and I haven't really given what I payed. Can anyone guess?
I'll post pictures within a day or so!

I would guess $150. There was a 200 gallon tank for sale in my local paper with everything for $175 just wish I had the cash at the time to buy it.

thanks! I moved all the convicts to a different tank and put in my 15 various other cichlids. I'll eventually get around to posting what fish I have in there, but I'm forgetting about half of the names.

**EDIT**
I was wrong, it is 125 gallons. Still a great deal!
