Well its not just "5yrs old" Thats how long she has had it.. said her aunt had it for 20+ years before her so. And claims there isnt even one scratch... with over 25yrs of use thats hard to believe. I'm just sticking to the 75G from my LFS. Thanks for your input guys!

Okay bumping this thread again.. because the lady just texted me and said 100$ for the tank and stand.. and all the little stuff!!!!! I might buy it just for a FW tank.. or start fixing anything that might be wrong with it for a HUGE sw setup later on down the line... inputs are always welcome give me some quick feedback not sure how long she will offer it up for 100$ for 125g Tank and stand!

Someone please give me there input if I should do this.. or just get my 75G for 431.92$ (Thats with tax.) All it comes with is the tank 2 glass tops, a light strip (BASIC) no filters/heaters.. or nothing. And a stand... Where as the other comes with 2 HOB filters, heather, 100lbs of crushed coral and lots more, not to mention its 125G with stand..

have you even looked at the tank yet??? 30 year old tank and stand is kinda old.for a sw i don't think it's advisable because of the cost of the setup.everyone knows sw setup don't come cheap and i don't want to see you regret buying it. on the other hand you could buy it and see what can be used and sell off the rest coz the 75g sounds expensive.

Well the stand is fairly new.. less than 10yrs. She said they resealed the tank about 5yrs ago. I was thinking of just buying both. Use the 125G for a nicely planted FW tank. And the 75G for my saltwater but so many thoughts going threw my head making it hard to decied.
