Ya its a coralife or an aquaticlife with 4 good bulbs. This is where the deal stands.
30 gal tank
Stand
Skimmer
Light
Live sand
2 free bangaii cardnelfish (free)
For 220... I didnt want his filter so he lowered the price

If it's all in good shape and the stand and all is nice I would for sure go look at it. If it's a coralife light then its a bit cheaper than the aquatic life one and they usually are CF fixtures so make sure you check that out.

$220 is kinda cutting it close as far as value. I've found the hardest part of my builds is always the stand. lol Especially for a 29g, lots of stands come in 24" and 36" and up but the 30" ones are kinda hard to come by near me.

In the end, it's what you think. When you see it if it's worth the money to YOU then it's a good deal.

If it's t5 you have a better selection of corals to choose from. If it's CF bulbs then you might run into some limitations.

A good stand is hard to find, specially one that you like. lol I've had to paint some of mine to get them to what I wanted.

Just sayin... I got my 20l/29g stands for $17 in the clearance isle at walmart. They're changing to a new stand or something, I got 2 from 2 different walmarts.
