- - Tap Water?

Can tap water be used when starting a saltwater setup? and can any kind of coral be kept without spending thousands on lighting?

Right now im just going to start off saying RO water (LFS or RO UNIT) is what you should use in a saltwater reef tank. I use tap water and dechlorinator on my tank (fish only).
As for lighting you can get T5 bulbs and starters now for about £30 that would mean you could keep soft corals and others. If you do use tap water make sure its not really really bad water. I have been told mushrooms and Zoas will be fine in a tank with tap water BUT i would suggest getting an RO unit and i am going to get one. They go for about £50-70 for a decent one but some waste alot of water so im not sure on getting one.

t5 are great lights i just started with them , for water i used water from the store filtered and added the salt any time you use tap water you add chemicals and i hate to put something extra its no good to remove a chemical thats my feelings i started a 125 and put the right water and live rock and had fish in there in 2 days awesome ,,
