Advice: Be Patient and do not cut short when buying equipment. Make sure you have plenty of filtration and live rock. Making your own rock at home saves a lot of money and aggravation in trying to keep algae down. I have also had more luck keeping my temp. at around 82 degrees F. My corals get larger and also multiply much faster at this temperature.

Advice: Plan and read. I wouldn't buy anything until your sure about the size of everything you want and the equipment needed to maintain your tank.You can usually figure about $30 - $35 a gal for a tank that is fully set up with livestock. Make sure to support your Local Fish Store, and check the internet to see if there is a good local reef community or forum board. My local board is: www.sdreefs.com If you wish to see the progression of this tank copy & paste this link: http://www.sdreefs.com/forums/showthread.php?p=142497&posted=1#post142497
