Hi I picked up a 150g tank for a deal which is dirt cheap. I paid $200 and got 150lbs of rock (3 tubs with 50lbs in each), Nova Extreme 4 bulb t5 48", Tank, stand, canopy, over $400 worth fake coral ( I see some pieces go for $30-100 at my LFS), protein skimmer, heaters, nets, food, books, Phosban reactor, 48" strip light. I'm sure all of this adds up to $1500 at least as the tank costs $500 stand is $400 and canopy was $300 at the LFS he bought his stuff from.

You should get a photobucket account and link your images from there. Then you can upload larger images so we can blow them up. there is no size limit this way.
