Hi fellow hobbyists. i know i have been away from this forum for a while. Almost a year, but i waited to start my Marine build so that i could source all my materials. Now that i am going to start it i was collecting all necessary material/equipment info for a completely custom DIY 3x2x2 with a separate sump.
But i found a guy in chennai who gave me a quote of 35k for Tank,sump,stand,rocks,sand and basic equipments excluding the lights ( I will be doing a T5 and LED hybrid ).
Now my question is , is 35K a proper estimate seeing that my initial estimate for the tank sump and stand alone was 30k. This guy is giving away more stuff in the package like rocks and substrate and probably a low level skimmer, which i intend to replace or use as a substitute.
I havent seen any of his models in the flesh and have asked for pics but still this sounds like such a deal which i cannot miss....

Sounds too good to be true..... but you might get lucky... how big is the tank and sump? I would strongly suggest that you pay him after he has delivered all the stuff at your house and set it up. or 50% on delivery and 50% after everything is working after setup. If he is genuine he will agree, if not stay away.
With the Chennai heat, invest in a chiller or keep the tank in a AC room.
