Please do not cycle with live animals.

This is what I just bought:
2) CD-967052 Aragamax Sand (30 lbs)
Quantity: 9
3) CD-18867 SEIO Pump M820
Quantity: 3
4) CD-18797 Pro HQI/Compact Fluorescent/Lunar Light Fixture 72" 834W
Quantity: 1
5) CD-21154 Pro HQI/Compact Fluorescent/Lunar Light Fixture Suspension
Hardware(adjusts from 12" to 72")
Quantity: 1
All this was about $1200, but you probably can get away with cheaper lighting.
Keep in mind, you still need salt, refractometer, heater/s, LR.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
