    I have bought a lot of used and got a lot of free stuff used. For a 95 gal tank I have spent some where around $700 to $800 range. Valued way more. I have been blessed. That does not include the water going through the ro-di unit.

    I'm in the design phase for my tank (wont buy anything till after getting married this weekend) and for the tank, lighting and sump/filtration my build list is sitting at about $5k, still need to add power-heads, sand, salt, and rock to that list as well as miscellaneous odds and ends I'm not thinking about currently

    We're not looking for any trouble.

    Not too bad, tank was free from little bro....Light was 115, fish total probably 100$, coral about 50$(I don't have much) about 60$ rock, and some number of salt/tests that I haven't kept track of.

    I made my own LR after the initial seed rock so that was a cost savings.

    Original tank was 1200 dollars for me with how it was setup
    500 dolalr skimmer
    350 dollars for more lighting
    all livestock 1500 imo
    200 for more lighting
    misc 500 bucks

    not toooooo bad in the end hahaha, livestock probs not so high, but though I would estimate it like that
