75 gallon w/oak cabinet/top all equipment included
150lbs live rock
1 snowflake eel
1 spotted puffer
2 clowns
1 pajama cardinal
1 or 2 damsels
1 chocolate chip starfish
$550.00 and only ten minutes from my house.
A good deal? My only concerned would be the breaking down an set up. The seller said he would help with that.

Poor stocking so you'd need to rehome some of those fish.
What equipment?

How live is the live rock?

The rock is very well established according to the owner.
As for the equipment regarding lighting and types/brands of the setup I'm not sure, but I'll be seeing it this weekend.
I've been a freshwater fishkeeper for 7 years with a 180 gal tank and am considering converting it to a FOWLR. This-possible-deal came up and my thinking is this tank would be an ideal quarintine tank for future stocking of the 180g. Is this a good deal? Notwithstanding the stocking issues I hope so, that's why I'm asking

Possibly a good deal, but impossible to answer without knowing the history/age and also carefully inspecting the current condition of all equipment and contents. Please see my comments made 2010.05.26 here, regarding the risk of used aquariums:
