No, it's much worse $$$ than freshwater. A nano setup is an alternative because it becomes easier to transpotrt water from the LFS. But nanos are a bit sensitive.

How so? The larger the tank, the more expensive the lighting.

Well, that may have been excessive. I could light a 40 for just over 100.

From your other post I can see that you are young and the LFS didn't really care if you succeeded. That sucks because I was you. I am older and now can afford stuff. If you watch Craigslist you can find rodi units. I just have an ro unit. You can get them for about $120. Or watch eBay. You don't have to buy stuff from your LFS you can find cheaper online Bulk Reef Supply. The only reason I find buying from the LFS is important is for emergency help in the future. If your LFS is just selling you stuff without telling you important facts like you need to do water changes and top off with rodi water they may be just wanting to make a quick buck. Also didn't tell you about cycling and moving a tank may cause a cycle. Read these forums read all post by Mr. X you will learn a lot and so far Mr. X has been right on everything I have read so far.

I hate to compliment Mr_X because it goes right to his head and coral sainthood is already eminent, but one thing he seems to promote is you can pursue this hobby in rubber wash tubs. It doesn't take a lot of cash to adopt the KISS principle. And it works really well for him. As an engineer, I over complicate things sometimes.
