if the this was the price is right

i would say 250 no low ball status but 300 is great if all packages is included

if anything look for scratches on the tank
or wood for that matter


if anything 300 is really nice if it comes with all the fix-ins

just really make sure it holds water
you dont wanna take home a pile of wood knowing it will leak a week later
if thats the case 200 would do it good cause silicone will just cost you a good 20 knowing you took

200 for the filter
100 for the light
put 80 for the air pump
and the tank and wood put that price
with your local stores

thats alot of work for the seller to just give it up for 300
must not care

rob him blind ask questions laugh later

You do not want incandescent bulbs in there - looks bad, lots of heat & inefficient.

Otherwise, any kind of fluorescent light will work, but for pricing, T5-HO costs more than PC or T8, T12's are cheapest. If you are doing plants, you would want to really check out the lights.

If he has an actinic bulb, that is for SW, You can easily swap out the bulbs, but is another $20 bargaining point.

If it is a MH / LED setup, that is for a reef tank. I doubt you will have that in that tank, as the fixture is upwards of $500-$1000. <If you have a good one of those in there, grab that for $300! You can easily sell that for a profit. >

Good that you went to see it in person!!
As I said, never buy a used tank based on a picture!!

Sorry to hear that was not as good as it sounded.
