Buying equipment used can save money but is risky for about $10-20 savings. You can also buy dry rock and sand to save money, it will become live over the cycle (and the bagged LS is not really live, it's just wet anyway)

Look for a nice ric pack, so much more variety than regular mushrooms ( kind of boring IMO)

You need to frag when your tank looks like Bribos :p. there's no real number of corals, as long as you have enough room for the aggressive corals not to kill the neighbors it's ok.
