Food, supplies and electricity, etc. I can afford to spend approx $2000 to start-up but I should know before I jump in if I can afford the monthy upkeep.
you might need more to start up but that wasnt your question
we can help you if you give us more information like what filters and skimmers are you running, how much food are you buying, reef tank or FO or FOWLR, also what light your getting since fluorescents wont do much to your electrical bill but MH might.
Fish only. I haven't bought anything yet so I don't know as far as what specific filter or skimmer. What type of food? I have no idea yet. Fish wise, I was thinking about 12 fish with my big one being the Blue Tang and a Coral Beauty for an angel fish.
As far as Live Rock goes, is that something that gets replenished or replaced? If so, how often?
