I have a remora aqua c skimmer, marineland led reef capable light, two 1600 gph wave makers, a 120 gallon canister filter under the tank, and marineland heater. 75 lbs of sand, 30 lbs of real reef live rock and 40 lbs of base rock.

Everything was new except for the light which was only used by a guy on eBay for a month. Said he didn't like salt and to prove it was only used for a month sent me the original paper work for when he bought it.

I feel like going all new, especially with the tank, is a waste of money. I guess spend it if you got it though. I just don't got it haha
