Should I buy a 180Gal for $200?

I have been handed the opportunity to buy a 180Gal, or possibly trade work for it. I work in the IT field and he may need some computer work done.

Of course I have not seen the tank and don't want to commit until I see it. I don't know any details about it yet. Like if its drilled or a new style tank, rimless, whatever.

Do you guys think $200 is a fair for a used 180Gal?

I talked to the owner in detail yesterday. It comes with a stand, Sump, Protein skimmer and all the pumps.

He said its in good condition but I may need to build a new stand or brace that one.

He bought a new house and doesnt have room for it. Im going to look at Saturday Morning and decide if I want it.

Well, for $200 with the sump and equipment.
Sounds like a good deal.
