I have a 30 gallon aquarium, I would like to make it a saltwater, All I have is a tetra EX 30 filter, and a light... I have 200 dollars and I was wondering if I would have enough to make it a saltwater aquarium.
Oh and the light is a shop light that has the lights for a greenhouse.
Thanks!

I also have a 20 gallon with out anything but a dinky 20 watt light without a hood or anything (right now I am using two picture frams with the light on top)

How much wold it cost to get one setup?

Read this article it will give you the idea;

http://www.aquahobby.com/articles/e_basic_reef_tank.php

Read all our articles about Marine aquariums;

http://www.aquahobby.com/e_articles.php

All is possible if you buy a decent skimmer.

Also lights are important if you are to keep corals.

Now off to reading Wink
