Mine has cost$450 Au.and is complete with full marie test kit,refractometer and some plakkie water containers and i only have to travel 30km to pick it up. Now comes the search for good live rock, have found red sea argonite for $85 and have a guy just starting shop with corals only that he dives for himself from the Northern Terrotory so might give him a look.
Yes know a bit about fishless cycle, is there anywhere that has full details as how to do step by step and what to look out for?

After you read about cycling with the shrimp, one advice is to use only the amount the article told you to. I used too much shrimp and it kind of screwed up the balance of ammonia and nitrite in my tank

Wow thanks everyone for all the help,also how do you work out what sort of bioload this size tank would be able to support when complete so i can start planning on fish/corals and inverts and in what sort of order to add them

My tank is 36g and I was recommended 4-5 depending on the fish. If you have good filtration, then you can have more fish. Also the type of fish determines a lot also. If you have a messy fish like a lion fish, it'll cut down the amount of fish by quite a bit.

Always consider the adult size of a fish when you buy one. Don't look at a fish at the LFS thinking that it wont grow much.

Also you cant put them all in at once sw is at a snails pace but with the expense better safe than sorry.
Also i recommend ammonia dose, it's really up to you but with dosing you know exactly how much ammonia your tank can handle in a day
