Looks like dry rock to me. Any idea what was in it before?
I would say yes, it looks very saveable. What happened to the other plan?

Agreed. You have some nice basics there. It will take about $200 to get this thing turned into a beautiful display.

This is the tank that I found that looked awesome in the Craigslist add and so I asked for some more pics and they lady had already drained the tank and left all this in there. Is it worth the 200.00 and what will I need to do to get it going say this weekend? Thanks Pasfur!

It was set up and looked very nice. It had a whole bunch of different color coral and stuff and they lady drained the tank and let all this dry out. The other plan was to setup a 24g Nano from scratch and now I am thinking I may just want to go that route. I am not sure!

In no way is that stuff worth 200 bucks. Go with your own from scratch. Wow she let it all die out? Thats horrible.

I think $200 is an ok value. A nice light fixture, cool looking stand and tank. The rock will seed again, so it is usable. But you will need an ADDITIONAL $200 to get this where it needs to be, and for $400 total you might find a better deal.
