The beautiful thing is that if you put time in and have experience, you can offset the cost greatly by breeding and selling fish

I glued down about 20 frags in my cube before I bought my first fish just to let them start encrusting before fish started knocking stuff over and inverts...

2pcs Hot Marsaqua 165W LED Aquarium Light True Watts 120W±5 Reef Coral Grow | eBay
This is what just showed up at bandits house last week!
Go the 33 UNLESS you can get the 40/45 with same foot print.
We both know why you got the 33's
My GBR grow out great in theirs!
In marine the thing is depth because of the salt that is in the water "cutting" the light.
The 33 will have 15+ cups of salt in it.
Ever try to shine light through a cup of salt?

Lost my typing

Unfortunately not joking

But Australia has different pricing and these would be 4 or 6 ft tanks with say nice wood stands. Depth 2 or 2.5ft so a PAR meter not needed but I think useful.

Not completely overboard but nice equipment.

http://daluaaustralia.com.au/product...ed-freshwater/

As a rule of thumb if I ever manage to get rid of a sofa so I can get another large tank, I'd say I would allow $2,500 for basic FW. Then $4,000 for planted. SW I'm told could run to 10 grand. The equipment would be better now but my neighbour still mentions a guy he knows that has a burglar alarm and backup power generator - not for break-ins but so if power goes down, he gets alarm sent, rushes home to switch generator on

I Traded 60 2" discus for my 150gl with stand, 2 fluval fx6 cannister, and uv sterilizer the size of my leg with mountings.
