Yeah, definitely save up to start a reef. Even if its small like a 10 gallon. You do not want to skimp on supplies. 2 Years ago when I began reefkeeping, I did not know how much was involved. Okay, got the tank, now I need to get the lighting, got the lighting, now the skimmer, the pumps, the rocks...it adds up quick. I remember leaving the fish store in shock when I bought my very first peice of live rock. Did I really just spend $40 for this rock? What!? Of course i hadnt really looked into how much everything was going to cost when I began my adventure....I just had alot of learning experieces
Oh well, you live and you learn.
