Ok ive had some fun here and got a shopping list for you. What i have in mind here is High end equip on a penny some things are "DIY" or home depot items but they pretty much are the same as a "aquarium item" but are about 50% less exspensive here are some linke of what i have found
here is a GREAT light fixture that you can hang from the ceiling or even put right on top of the hoods. i reccomend switching out the lights though. Light Fixture
For the Lamps your going to want a combo of them here is one that i reccomend and use for the Very high Blue and red spectrum which plants NEED to photsenthisize. Lamp 1 Lamp 2
now for heaters this is definately one thing that you DO NOT want to cheap out on it is the one most important thing in your aquarium. The ones i choose for you are very reliable Accurate and very very easy to hide i reccomend buying two of the 250 watt ones Heater
Filtration wont be too much a a big deal for you but i would still throw in a cannister filter just because :D
Look at the c053 model here
as far as hoods go if you decide to go with the lighting i choose for you look for the clear vers top hoods they are pretty cheap and easy to use. or you could always make your own :D
This is the "low budget" list for equipment lets add it up.
Lamps Total-Like 70.00
Versa Tops-77.98 assuming you buy x2 48inch ones Here
Test Kit-18.00 which can be found here
(This is a API Master freshwater test kit which i bought here too.
Your gunna want a good water conditioner which can be found here
Get the big bottle ;) 7.49
a alge scrubber These work wonders in big tanks i suggest the medium one which can be found Here
Maybe Two thermometers which you can find Here
these ones are pretty cool and cheap!! 14.78
i also reccomend a Python for your water changes they are a breeze to use for a tank of this size. find them Here
25Ft model 34.99
And the grand total is................................................ ...........................651.13!!! WOO
now im sure others might give you a diffrent list but if i were you this is what i would get for equip. i would also use Play sand and wash it myself so that its suitable for my aquarium. if you went this route your looking at Maybe 25.00 total for like 100lbs of sand compared to 100$ for "Aquarium sand" that still needs washed. I hope this helps you Money.
