If you want all inclusive I would suggest a biocube or nano cube or something similar. everything in one package.

Looks like a good deal, a little pricey in my opinion but it comes with decent lights which usually are the most expensive part of a reef tank. You do want corals and the such correct?

I think a standard 90 is only 4 feet, maybe 5. I woudl wait for a 125g if you can. I got mine for $100 with stand and lights (sold off the lights for $75 ) so it came out to $25.

These deals are not everyday but they do exist. i have an app on my phone that alerts me to new stuff when it's posted so I get first dibs.

I just missed out on a FREE 180 tank and stand. :-(

With that budget it's just a matter of time. i see awesome setups for that price range with lots of goodies and not crappy basic setup either.

Things to look for: solid, unscratched drilled tank, good lighting, either 3 250watt metal halides or a 12 bulb T5 setup. make sure it has a large enough sump, maybe a refugium in the sump and a decent skimmer. For that kind of money you should be getting powerheads and heater as well.
