Oh man, that tank makes me want to get into SW soo bad, but unfortunately funds are an issue (I'm in high school with a part-time job so...). That is a VERY nice tank! Good work!

I feel your pain Doc Wink

A SW tank need not cost a lot if one is patient and willing to limit their livestock choices. I started with a used 33G. tank, normal florescent lighting and a powerfilter. In such a tank with some liverock and/or an established sandbed one could begin keeping a pair of clowns (false perculas), some snails and/or hermits. When funds allow more live rock and an upgrade in lighting would allow the addition of some hardy corals and one or two more fish.
After that you will be hooked and any discussion regarding the ability to afford the hobby will seem silly and meaningless...
