1st of all im not sure what section to put this in so this might be wrong. But anyway a friend of mine has been wanting to buy a new tank and came across a 44 pentagon set up. It looks nice and everything but the asking price is $250 the guy told her he'd take $200. I told her I thought it was high but here is a link to the listing, maybe you guys could tell me your thoughts?

I'm pretty sure she was just going to put some small tropicals in it. I was just thinking the price was pretty high, it comes with a lot of stuff but it all looks pretty old. But I think she's alre decided against it bc we've seen 75 gal set ups for that price. She thought maybe the unusual shape is what added to the price but my thinking was that unusual shaped tanks shouldn't cost as much bc not everyone likes them.

Not worth it in my opinion. The filtration is nothing special and so are the accessories. Though not the same shape, Petsmart has a sale on their 56g column. If you buy online and pick up in store they offer $50 off.

$205 for new tank, tops, light and stand is a better deal to me.
