Well the tank came in today. THe item description, title, and in a personal email stated that it was new in box. This tank has clearly been used. It's scratched, the filter cartridge was caked with nastiness, the light bulb was burnt out, and none of the sample foods were inside. Not to mention the million rocks I had to dig out of cracks.
I cleaned the tank and filter with vinegar, bought a new light bulb, and replaced the filter cartridge. Right now it's setup and working but I'm terrified to put a fish in it because I have no idea what was in that old filter cartridge.
Here's a pic of old vs new:
