Luke, Malkore has a very good point. Do not skimp to save a few bucks in the beginning because it will only cost you more in the end. I know a lot of reefers who cut corners in the beginning or got bad advice from a LFS and have a basement full of equipment that does not work properly or is not very effective. Keep doing you home work before jumping in with both feet.

If you have a reef remember, electricity will be a factor. I spend between $45 and $60 per month for my 175 reef. Just because you do not actually see the spend does not mean you can forget about it.
