Two tanks on one stand?

I found a used tank setup that has two 29 gallon takes side by side on a 48" wide stand. Is this just a hodgepodge setup or is there actually a common reason for doing this? Seller is asking $50 for the whole setup.

He is a picture of the setup. The seller says they have been empty for a good 10 years.

Those are some odd tanks, but I see nothing wrong with the setup. It's not much different than having one 4ft long 60g tank as far as the stand is concerned.

Should I be concerned about the seals seeing as they have sat empty for the past 10 to 15 years? I'm having a hard time passing them up for $50 bucks.

for $50 you can always get some new silicone and reseal them...

you may run into a lighting issue if you plan on keeping two different types of tanks...

The seals look good in the pictures, but it's hard to tell. If it's not flaking or peeling, test it. Silicone is pretty cheap.

I have never saw that before. For $50 that is a good price if you want something like that.

Sitting empty and dry will not harm the silicone. Fill them up and see if they leak.
