It was 23 so not much in my opinion. Yes I heard they are hard but a project sounds good

Haha they are amazing - get one! if you are serious about a sea star let the tank grow a little first to ensure he has food

I use aquaray mini hd 500 led lighting. It's perfect for my tank and when I have a little more money I will buy the controller. This will allow me to have storms and ramp the lighting to simulate sunrises.

There is loads of lighting units out there it depends what you are wanting to do with the tank. how big is it?
