I personally would spend a little more for the proper fish. If you want a healthy and happy tank then it's best to stock it properly, freshwater fish converted to salt is not really proper. Look at it this way, spending 5.00 on a freshwater fish and acclimating it for a long period of time to have it die and need to replace it equals spending 10.00 on a saltwater fish. I'm a firm believer in quality and I would rather save my money for a while and buy what I want than spending what I have right now for something that's ok. This usually leads to wasted money cause you still want that fish and will buy it sooner or later so don't waste your money. Plus if you set aside 10-20 bucks a paycheque it's not really hard to come up with the cash, a fifty dollar fish is covered in 1.5 months.

Like puffer was saying you'll end up buying what you want eventually so just make a wish list of things that add up to $200 and start setting aside $40 a week and in 5 weeks you'll have what you want...patience is important in this hobby

Then you will get the tank you want instead of a hodge podge tank
