Depending on what your planning on setting up .
It's not that expensive after you get everything set up .
You will go through a fair bit of salt from the start with constant water changes but once you get your parameters to where you want them it runs it self .
And water changes are only 10-20 % weekly
I bought a 35 lb bucket of salt on July 3 for $65 and just did my last water change last weekend with it .
$65 for 6 months isn't expensive at all , but keep in mind it's a obsession and there is always something you will want, you will always want more , bigger and better .
