You might wanna invest in a refractometer instead of the swing arm. i just got one on ebay for $30.

Your list seems HUGE! lol theres a few things on there I wouldnt rush right into though, like the buffers and supplements. The live sand thing is also questionable. I mean really, how live can the sand be in a bag with water? hehe

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Im no expert on coral yet. But from what I've seen posted I think most would agree on mh lighting. But I guess it depends on what coral you have
