I am on a budget when it comes to live rock too. I found 45lbs of Fiji for $150 w/shipping. That's the best I've found.

http://www.marinedepotlive.com/live-rock-sand.html

Also check out www.hirocks.com for baserock. very inexpensive

For live rock I would definatley recommend www.eastcoastclams.com

I would not recommend clams and anemones to beginners. You would probalby want to let your new tank age for a while even if you are not a beginner.

That is kind of iffy. I personally would recommend Metal Halides for clams and anemones. However I have heard of keeping anemones under pc lights. However they were high wattage systems with several bulbs. Considering you will be waiting till the time is right to add clams and anemones maybe you could save to upgrade you lighting later. Starting with pcs will allow you to keep a nice variety of soft corals, mushrooms, LPS, zoanthids and polyps. Then when you upgrade to metal halides you can keep clams, anemones, and sps coral. This is all considering you have excellent water conditions, a mature tank, and have thoroughly researched you new additions. BTW I personally have never seen a clam kept successfully under PC lighting, but I am sure it has been done. I just dont recommend it. Beleive it or not you probalby can afford metal halides on your budget, I would watch ebay closely. good luck.

For live rock and live sand I will recommend www.candybass.com BUT at this juncture he only has a few hundred lbs to sell. I expect that in the comming months that will increase as he has not been able to get access to his aquaculture plot in the FL Keys for some time.

This is where I got some of my LR and all of my LS that I have used to seed both my 20 and 80.
