So this is what has shown up so far it is the skimmer, 1 inch bulkhead, locline 3/4 inch connecter, and the locline sprayer just waiting for yhe rest of the locline and the 3/4 inch bulkhead and the return pump. Plan on starting the desk and maybe the cabinet to hold the tank.

You really don't need all of the expensive equipment if your money is funny, All you need is a power head for good current, a hang on the back filter, and a protein skimmer and you're good to go. I've read on different forums that these people go and buy all of this fancy equipment and end up spending 700 to a 1000 dollars, for what? I have a 55 gal saltwater aquarium all I use are 2 penguin bio filters, one is made for 75 gal.the other is for 150 gallons, a protein skimmer, and a powerhead.I also use water conditioners and supplements with no problems.

That's a reasonable price range, I've had my HOB filters for a while now, I think 2 years.My other ones were given to me ,they were old and the things I bought to start up with 3 weeks ago cost about 250 ish.
