You need to use ro/di water as well. You can usually buy it at your lfs or get a unit and make your own (cost effective). You can also use base rock over live rock, which is much cheaper. You'll still want a little live rock to seed the tank. You will also need powerheads. Koralias are great and fairly cheap

Ok so, I would rather make my water if it is more cost efficient
And how do I hook up a power head
