Craigslist is a great place to get bargains!

[CENTER]Please don't forget about the toxins in some corals (like zoas and palythoas)

You can also check your local newspaper "for sale" ads, garage sales. And petco has $1 a gallon sales, think the largest tank is 55. Or you could try posting a "wanted" ad in your local newspaper.

Craigslist. I.E- Right now in my state there is a 55 gallon and stand for sale at $50.00. Too bad I don't have room otherwise into the savings account I would dive.

Go with the Base rock idea. i spent 100 bucks and got fifty pounds of base and free shipping. Then spent about $60.00 for three pounds of manado live rock and that included shipping.

Do your research and don't impulsively buy. I dropped $100.00 on a sea clone only to find out it really isn't that great of a skimmer.

DIY projects also save you money I.E. a petco stand with canopy for a fifty five gallon would run you around 250 and I built myself a stand for forty and have left over wood enough for a canopy. also built my own sump/fuge for about 40 as well.
