Well he could spend a little more and have a better chance of surviving the beginner trials. You don't have to buy brand new, I got a used 29 with stand and filter for $50 when I started on the advice that I shouldn't start with a ten gallon, here it is three years later and I'm four tanks deep! I'd take rex's advice, but don't buy brand new, theres always someone who's given up trying to unload a tank on the cheap, my 2 cents!
