Good deal?

I found a craigs list add in my area listing some tanks.
Turns out is:

100 gallon tank ( tall tank ) no stand, asking for $50
60 gallon tank (15 Wx48 Lx17 H) come with wood stand (16x49x25), asking for $110 ( with free biofilter)
40 gallon tank (16x36x17) come with wood stand ( 15x49x24 this stand for 60gal tank but I used for 30 gal tank), asking for $89 ( with free biofilter)
Steel stand (12x48x29) itself no tank ( for 60 gal tank), asking for $15
2 Air pumps, asking for $15 each
3 heaters 300W, asking for $15 each
7 dividers for 60 gallon tank, asking for $8 each
All take it all for $350

Thats much less than I've seen just the 100 with a stand for. What do you all think?

If the stuff is in good/usable condition it's a great price.

From the photos attached it all looks like its in pretty good shape. I think I might have to run over and take a look at it all just to make sure though.

this is ok.... but you are going to have to buy or build a stand. for some people thats no problem but for someone like me.... i would wait you can always find 100 gallon tanks with stand for $100.

Thanks for that. I found a much better looking 100 with everything. For some reason it didn't occur to me to check out the OC.

Thanks again,

Brian

I found one for $200. Its in perfect shape, comes with all of the equipment and has a cabinet grade stand that matches the one I have for my 40. I like the looks of it. I'm going to swing by tomorrow and take a look at it to make sure though.

By the way, I checked out your site. I'm looking at setting up one of my 20s as a planted Red Cherry tank soon. I might be shooting you a message when I get ready for it if you don't mind.

I saw a couple in the over 200 gallon range for $5-700 while I was looking. I'm not quite ready for something that big yet. I'm just getting back into the hobby and want to get used to things first. I figure when I'm ready I'll sell off a few of my tanks and head toward something bigger or a reef setup.

Thanks again. I'll be sending you a pm for sure when I get the 20 out.
