I'd get the info severum asked you for. I think you haven't gotten a yes or no because you haven't answered yet

Also, at that price, I would want to see some live rock thrown in with the deal.

Considering that you can get a 29g tank for $29 at petco when they do their sale, $30-40 when they're not... who knows what brand skimmer and filter... the light is expensive, but easily found cheaper elsewhere.... I'd say you could piece together a new setup for about the same. Unless it has a good quality filter and skimmer, I'd pass on it. $150 is as much as I'd pay for something like that, provided the filter and skimmer were of decent quality. If they're not giving you brand names, that raises a red flag IMO

If it's an aquatic life light then it's a good light. The skimmer I think if you look at it you can tell if it's a good one. Seaclones are cheap so if it's one of them its not super.
