Getting a 57g Rimless

One of my friends is offering me a 57g rimless deep blue tank with a skimmer, lights, sump, LR, LS, and return pump, would I need anything else to start the tank or is that all?

Thats is pretty much all you need to get started though a RO/DI water system would be a good investment to make before you start.

To make RO/DI water. Tap water is not suitable for saltwater tanks, especially reef tanks.

It doesn't actually put that much out its just how much it "could" handle, it actually puts out about 15-20 gallons per day. If you look up Carey she has a link to a small counter top unit she used that's good for a lower budget but if you want a higher end system look on bulk reef supply, my unit is from aquasafecanada.com. I had a discount code and got it for about 170 shipped.

Oh and a general rule of thumb is to buy online or from classifieds. This is an EXPENSIVE hobby so every little bit helps. LFS have to make a profit so they are more expensive so if you have the time available to wait for shipping then online is often cheaper and typically way cheaper.
