Good deal?

Ok well I found a guy selling a 180 gallon tank and stand for 1000 dollars. This doesnt include livestock. It does however, include moonlights, 2 250W MH and a 400W MH with around 5 month old bulbs. Also included is a 40g sump and 4 koralia 4 Power heads. The tank is RR , about 2 years old, and oceanic brand. Good deal?

IMO it sounds like a good deal esp. with the added equipment.

whats the mh sump and powheads worth? tank around here is worth $200 i dont use any of that other stuff so i dont know....

what are the dimensions of the tank? many people often say their tank is bigger then what it is.

order some pizza and invite a couple people over. i would say at least 3-4 people. its heavy. good luck.

In SW more water volume is always better. But you`ll have to spend more money on lighting and equipment that you got on the other deal.

Send a message via AIM to Lance M.
IMO find out the brand of the MH lights and their condition. If the tank is still setup, ask if you can see it in action with everything working then decide. Like said before, lighting is the most expensive (other then the livestock lol) part of reefkeeping.
