Ok, I am only looking into doing a 40 gallon set up, nothing fancy, this is a starter tank, Im not going to be going all crazy about this tank. once i can manage this tank, in a few years il upgrade and go all crazy. I found a powerhead for 30, 20 lb sand for 30, 7.99 per lb for live rock, havnt priced salt yet, 30 for a skimmer, and it looks like i found a tank with all accesories on a website that i can buy for 200, after that all i need is some fish. i have everything pretty much figured out. so all i need is to figure out the water. this is a new tank, so i dont need a quarentine, i am going to get the tank and the rock first, and cylcle the tank with just water and rock to further cure it, once thats done, i will e adding in the sand, then cycle that for a while, then finally after its all set up i will put in the fish. SO all i need is to take care of the water issue.
