With that budget it's just a matter of time. i see awesome setups for that price range with lots of goodies and not crappy basic setup either.

Things to look for: solid, unscratched drilled tank, good lighting, either 3 250watt metal halides or a 12 bulb T5 setup. make sure it has a large enough sump, maybe a refugium in the sump and a decent skimmer. For that kind of money you should be getting powerheads and heater as well.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.
