Don't give up the dream so fast! If a low budget saltwater tank is all you can afford, then lets talk about some options to get you started on this side of the hobby. What freshwater equipment do you currently own?

sorry pasfur! i already held the poll. maybe if something happens, like me winning the lotto or someother money-earning thing happens, i will do SW. maybe if i can find cheap prices at the Coral Frag Swap coming up in my area soon, i will do SW.

I'd say if you were handy you could make everything at a small fraction of the cost. I got my lights for my 55g set up (2x175watt ballast) for only $100 and i only needed the bulbs after that. Skimmers are cheap too if you can find one from a club member. i got a skimmer that normally runs around $300 for free , i just need to add the pump. The clubs are the way to go when looking for supplies.

If you can DIY everything it gets so much cheaper still. I built an LED moonlight set up for only $5 and i've seen threads of people building their own MH setup for tanks and costing only $50 or so rather then a hundred here and 3 hundred there. The options are there, just look harder... if you are serious about being a SW keeper.
