Well a bigger tank means you have to buy bigger equipment to fit it out right. As well as more sand and rock so short answer, yes. Craigslist has deals some times for this stuff, I got 1k worth stuff for 300$ so just matter where you look.
Reef tanks are coral reefs, you have coral and it's a lot more care for it.
Also fish tank are most likely a fowlr
tank. Fish only with live rock, same things are needed but without the high quality lights
