saltwater setup cost
how much would it cost to get a saltwater tank up and running? I have a 55g.

It really depends on what prices are like in your area. At one of my lfs they have a setup for saltwater that costs 600 usd. This includes the tank, lighting fixture, a stand, heater, protien skimmer, salt, powerhead, filter, water conditioner and fish food.

its ALOT more expensive than fresh water right?

yeah, the only reason I haven't started a saltwater yet. I really want to but I can't afford it.

It isnt as expensive once you start it and maintain. It is just a good amount of money in the begining.
