Hi everyone I'm just wondering if this is a good deal or not. A 108 gallon which is actually much larger more like 118 72"X19"X20". It comes with an ebo jager heater 250 watt i believe, an Aquaclear 50, a Fluval 404, glass tops, a 4 foot light/ballast and I assume a stand but am not sure. The tank is in excellent condition no scratches, brand new. The guy wants $400 canadian for it. Do you think this is a good deal?

If Canadian dollars are pretty equal to US dollars, better hurry before it sells to someone else.

The guy is just goin to talk it over with his wife he wanted to sell all 13 of his tanks together but had no luck his ad is now out of the paper so I think I'm in the clear. So how good of a deal do you think it is is it a steal or a good deal? thanks for the quick reply

It sounds like a steal (once again if Canadian $ is simalar in value to U.S. $) if like you said it's practically new and comes with the stand and all the trimmings. I may be paying too much but I only buy OceanicSystems tanks and stands so maybe also depending on who the mfg is. Good Luck!

1 United States Dollar (USD) is equivilant to 1.1073 Canadian Dollars (CAD)

In other wors a US dollar is worth slightly more than a canadian dollar

400 CAD = $361 USD

The tank is a hagen and I'm gonna get back to him on friday after he's talked it through with his wife. Also in the lfs the same tank without heaters filters etc is around $1000.

that looks like a petsmart price to me. (the 1000)
the 108 new shoudl be between 300-400 stand $100 heater 40$ 4 foot light 100$ and the 2 filters I don;t know
call it 700 new?maybe 800?

50% is fair asking price for used tank. however. tank along used, should not be much over 1-2$ a gallon
roughtly your paying 100$ for the tank, 100$ for the stand, 100$ for the light, 100$ for filters?

My last used, I paid 400 for tank, stand, sump no extras 100 gallon. and I feet jewed after I bought the one I wanted less than a year later.

I would not say it is a steel, but fair asking price.
