I wouldn't consider live sand a necessity, but I would highly recommend live rock. Some people like live sand, and some don't. I used live sand to set up my current tanks, but for my next tank I probably won't use it.

You will really like saltwater, it is amazing!

Very smart! Research before you buy and then your odds of encountering problems are cut back!

Thanks. I'll keep you posted. Probably not till after Xmas. I have a lot of research in the meantime. No rush here, I want to make sure I plan everything out.

On craigslist now! Already finding some awesome stuff!! One guy has a whole sw set up for sale but it's about 2 and a half hour drive. 40g sw tank with power heads, skimmer, rock. Then it just says other equipment. Also says comes with stand. Picture of tank looks like death though.
