    A very WARM welcome to MASA Wetty! Please elaborate on your plans. What type of tank do you have in mind?
    Have you thought of:
    - filtration (ie, skimmer, sump, reactors, etc)
    - lighting
    - water flow
    - substrate
    - live rock
    - etc.
    Also - please have a look at the threads in the "New Members" forum/area. You will find a LOT of questions asked and answered.

    Have a look at other members tank specs and then pm them for a rough guide to cost of setting up, and equally important, running costs.
