I still gotta buy salt and my test kits for the calcium magnesium and others.
It's gonna be probably a month or two before it running but it's easier for me to save up 100 than 260.
Yeah, buy the things you need now such as Ammo,Trite, and Trate tests. Mag, Alk
, and Cal aren't needed until you start adding coral. Petsmart has relatively inexpensive aquariums. And 50lbs of baserock now and 50lbs later will save you quite a bit of money.
