    Question Does This seem like a good deal?

    I have a 24g nano cube. Great set up, this is running, and has:
    tank
    stand
    pump
    heater
    HQI lights (very good stuff)
    live sand
    live rock
    some coral
    a bubble tip anemone
    some livestock - including crab, snails, a nice clownfish (nemo) and peppermint shrimp

    great deal at $300
    or $225 with no rock or livestock

    No someone wants to sell it to me thinking on taking it.

    Think a hang on the back Skimmer is a good idea?

    if it stays as is.. not buying any corals/fish etc.. hydro, water, salt and what ever test kits you need as well to check its parameters.

    no idea.. really depends on a ton of variables.. but its a small tank.. probebly 40$ a month ? for some rodi water / salt and hydro >?

    someone in Ontario or around your area may have a better price point for you. my last tank cost over 2-300$ a month.. hydro, food, salt...

    so the 24g hqi package is around 200$ + stand ~100$
    then add 5$ a # for LR probebly 10-15# in there.. so 50-75$
    not sure if heaters/pumps come with it I believe.. else another ~60-70$
    live sand and corals.. depending on whats in it.. anything from 30 to 100$
    clean up crew and fish.. probebly 60$

    all in all that kit new would be 500 to ~700$ +tx
    so 250-300$ ain't bad at all bud. ( considering stuff is usually sold at 1/2 what its paid new.. or less.. )

    its enough to get addicted to the hobby *( remember I said that he he )
