I've already got an RO

$45 to a Refractometer
$65 to a Protein skimmer
$30 to chemicals/ new RO
$100 for lighting
$50 to dollars for a stand/tank(going to get a computer stand as they will have wheels to move around easier and already have a whole in there for wires which I will use to route my plumbing.)
$20 to glass cutting equipment
$10 for piping
$60 for a sump pump.
$100 for lr
$200 for livestock...
$40 for a Hydor Nano
So that will add up to about...$720. I have a lot of saving to do...I feel dizzy from how fast that added up.
You could do away with some of those items up front like the protein skimmer. You could also do without a sump for now. Id just worry about the tank/stand, lighting, heating, flow, and rocks.
The koralia shouldnt cost you $40.00. Look on ebay. You can get alot of items much cheaper! I got a Koralia 2 for $37.00.
For rocks, just get a bit of live rock and the rest dry base rock. Get cheap dry aragonite sand.
Oh yea, how big is your tank? It may be much too heavy for a portable computer desk.
Depending on size, you likely wont need a skimmer or a sump.
