Good evening everyone! I apologize if I am in the wrong thread area. I have been debating purchasing my first saltwater set up and need help. I have been doing research on this for well over a month and trying to get my ducks (fish) in a row. I am currently looking at purchasing a 75 - 92 gallon tank and I want to run reef and fish. I have found a couple on craigslist that come with lights, sumps,live rock and live sand, that seem reasonably priced. I am trying to figure out if I should purchase a full up and running tank or if I should start over from scratch. I think starting over from scratch would be the more fulfilling/expensive/difficult but not opposed to purchasing up and running. I am not in a hurry to get up and running, and don't have an unlimited pocketbook (which from what I have seen might be necessary.) So if you could, please let me know what is important right off the bat, what I can wait on, and anything else that you feel would be good for someone new to know. Thanking you in advance and look forward to hearing from you!
