If you want to stay under a lot of money, don't get saltwater or Discus. The SW is very expensive when you first start-up. I plan on spending 200-250 dollars on my 10G SW tank for the "chemicals" (salt, testing kit, etc), RO filter, light fixture, powerhead, and others I can't think of. My light fixture is going to be $75 for a 96 watt fixture.
The discus will be expensive too. A lot of nessicary equimpent wil need to be bought, not to mention QT tanks, medication and the discus itself. A discus can be very expensive, and isn't exactly for a new aqurariust. They are very fragile for the first few weeks, but after that they can be very hardy fish.
