Used equipment

I am looking to get into the aquarium hobby but don't want to make quick decisions. I want to do it right to start with. I have someone offering to sell me a 90 gal tank, a Rena filstar xp4 filter(I think is what its called) as well as a fluval heater for 175.00. I will have to get lights for it. He tells me its a deal I should not pass on. I was just wondering peoples opinions because I have never owned an aquarium before.

Thats an okay deal. If it had a light it would be a good deal. A cheap light for a big tank is around 75 bucks

Those are cheap. Maybe 30 bucks total for rocks and gravel.

If you really wanna get into the hobby, look around and save your 175. There are much much better deals to be found

or talk him down to 125, that would be a much better deal. 90 gallon tanks are about 200 new, but as with any other thing in this world, the value drops tremendously when its used
