(2) $100-150 for the needed pump
I'm probably not going to get a reef octopus just out of principal lol. They are top of the line I suppose, but I'm not shopping for top of the line I'm shopping for bang-for-the-buck, so that pretty much eliminates reef octopus, unless I found a really good deal on one used.

I have an eshopps psk75h, I love it, it's a great skimmer, but their larger models are just as expensive as the name brand stuff for the most part. I think I'm going with that no name cone skimmer, I figure worst case is I buy a nice pump for it down the road.
And I got the eshopps for $40 and a zoanthid frag off craigslist so that makes it even better in my book.

Just bought a little power center to incorporate into the stand. I think it will be cool and help with all the electrical cords that will be coming soon.

I'm reviving this old thread, I have been working on this project just slowly. But things should start moving a little quicker now.
I have the tank in the house, now I have to work on the sump.
