The biggest pit fall would be lack of planning and research. Many problems take time like months or yrs after you have spent lots of money not to mention your time.

There is a basic setup that will give great results but you might find that this varys alot also. Finding that medium that will work for you takes knowledge of what your tank needs and any cause and affect from your water readings.

I would buy a startup book ( i can give link to anything you need ) and ask questions and preplan your complete setup before you buy anything.
