a new 40 gallon ussually cost (where I live) 65-80 dollars without a stand or light fixture. Seems like a huge steal to me.

Not really a "steal"

I browse craig's list often and see 55's go for that all the time will all the equipment.

I would keep shopping. It doesn't have a filter or anything else.

Not to bad with the stand but if you wait it out you can find better deals.

If you are wanting to do SW then the live rock is worth that much.

Wondering if it comes with a skimmer, heater, etc.

Idk if it comes with a skimmer but the same poster has other tanks with skimmers so maybe I can buy one of those? Not sure. And Idk the price on the live rock, but if I did get this tank, I would likely be getting at least some rock from this person. So no skimmer and as far as I can see, no lights, but has filter and stand.

So you are doing SW?


Keep checking for lights. Those things are $$$


If you have the patients you can piece together a nice set up.

Yes, doing SW and I'm in no rush, I want to do it right, but I also am on a tight budget.

Sounds like piecing it together is a good option for you.


But SW aquarium and budget are 2 words that do not go together.
