 Looks  like  a  decent  buy....
 Any  idea  what  make  the  filter  and  the  pump  is.
 Please  check  for  any  scratches  on  the  glass  and  functioning  of  all  the  accessories.
 One  final  question,  where  are  you  from?

 @garothmaan  -  Thanks  for  the  quick  reply.
 
 I'm  not  sure  of  the  thickness  of  the  tank.  When  you  mean  the  tank  "should  be  worth  75".  Did  you  mean  Rs.7500?

 @Vinod  -  Thanks,  I'll  check  that  out.
 
 @garothmaan  -  Wow  alrite..  Do   think  this  setup  is  overpriced?  I  couldnt  get  the  exact  details  of  the  filter  but  this  is  what  he  mentioned  "The  Aquarium  already  has  the  filter  in  it.  There  is  also  a  motor  that  pushes  water  from  the  aquarium  to  the  filter  layer."
 &  me  being  a  newbie  doesnt  help  matters  much.

 Show  me  that  filter  and  the  rest  of  the  material.  If  the  GUY  is  realy  broke,  then,  may  be  you  can  be  charitable.  But  if  its  a  different  scenario  then  try  to  exploit  the  situation  (IMO).  Can  you  find  out  how  old  is  that  cabinet?

 Check  the  Aquarium  glass  thickness,  Scratches  if  any...and  of  course,  if  it  has  leaked  previously  and  repaired  before  sell.
 
 If  that's  the  case,  then  I  prefer  to  stay  away  from  such  purchase.  Otherwise,  it  looks  a  good  deal.
 
 About  other  material  such  as  filters,  heaters,  it's  better  to  check  the  usage  of  these  items  and  conditions  before  purchase.

 @Sandy  -  Thanks  for  the  headsup!  The  seller  stays  on  the  otherside  of  the  city.  So  I've  asked  him  to  email  me  a  few  pics  of  the  setup/accessories.  I'll  take  it  forward  from  there  but  since  garothmaan  said  the  glass  is  worth  only  Rs.75/-  I'm  really  confused.  
 
 Could  I  get  the  aquarium  that  cheap?

 Dont  rely  on  pics  Abhi...make  sure  u  take  some  time  and  personally  chk  them  out.
 Carefully  observe  for  scratches,  chipped  edges  ,  any  small  cracks  ,  see  functionality  of  all  the  accessories....
 Dont  follow  heart  in  second  hand  buys  as  u  n  u  only  will  be  responsible  for  a  bad  buy.
 Were  you  able  to  speak  with  the  person  whose  contact  I  shared  with  you.

 @Vinod  -  No  not  yet..  I'd  personally  inspect  the  items  before  purchasing  them.
 
 Also,  I  needed  a  little  help  before  I  call  up  the  dealer,  I  dont  want  to  sound  like  a  complete  noob  to  him.  I'm  interested  in  Aquascaping  so  I  wanted  to  know  what  type  of  substrate/lighting/filter  would  be  necessary.  Also,  the  height  of  the  aquarium.  I've  been  reading  up  a  little,  would  if  be  cheaper  if  I  go  for  a  standard  dimensions?
