Tell me if this is a good deal!

I'm looking to get my son an aquarium for his birthday, but I don't know anything about equipment, etc. I'm at backpage.com, link is chicago aquarium - pets for sale - backpage.com. Under the July 1st listing there is are 2 aquariums and a bunch of fish for only $120... What am I missing? Doesn't this sound too much for too little? What do I need to watch out for? What questions should I ask? Thanks!

Seems OK considering theres 20 fish and two tanks. Be aware that those tanks are fully stocked, so you won't be able to add anymore fish. Also when moving tanks, you MUST keep the filter media wet or you will risk having those tanks crash.

Also I don't know if the tank comes with it, but you need a LIQUID water test kit for ph, ammonia, nitrite, and nitrate.

.... I'm probably drunk.

This is how I lurk
