Reflections Marine at Moorabbin gave me an estimate. They were extremely helpful. We just got back from there as they had an open night for members.
The only things I needed to get were a full on outside skimmer (protein) lots of real live rock and saltwater. The current filter will do fine and I can upgrade later. Also coral reef flloring was included as well at 100ltrs of fresh saltwater (boy the car was full).
The next most expensive things will be the lights of course, aproxx 400$,aud for T-5 set up. Which can wait.
The interesting thing was his comments about the live rock and it's importance in the longevity and natural filtration whereby I need not have anything more than power pumps for circulation and the protein skimme..
Only 500AUD so far including a professional skimmer, water all the live rocks and coral sand. The most expensive parts are the lights! I will still run a filter pump but that should be OK.
