40g breeder will not fit any stingray. You are going to want more like 400+ gallons for the smaller species. And more like public aquarium size for the mid to larger sizes.

In my 40b reef i have the following fish.
2 clowns
1 lubocks fairy
1 coral beauty angelfish.

I wouldnt look at one persons setup for the price. I would breakdown what you think your tank needs, budget each section, tweak when the overall budget gets too high. But a few tips to keep costs down.

Dont buy a budget skimmer, better to have no skimmer and filter some other way.

Used is ok for many of things we use . Save dollars where you can.

Lighting can be expensive, leds while the new toy are not necessary, a low cost t5 setup will grow any type of coral. Dont want corals use a led rope lol.

What is really needed for a sw tank. Rock, pumps to move the water, and a plan to deal with nutrients and a way to measure salinity. For corals add light, plan to maintain alk, mag, cal, better water movement.
