Santa Monica algae scrubber
Skimmer
Return pump
Heater

Lots of live rock
ATO
Huge bin of extras and odds and ends

I’m only giving myself another 1000 to get this tank up running and fish, and possibly some corals!

The two 20 gallons are my first purchase for my QT tanks!! I had the lumber lying around so I built them a stand. Probably 20-30? With 8’ 2x4 cut up to pit them closely, and a box of screws. Got the 20 gallon long brand new at Petco for 30 bucks too.

25 for the building materials
30 for the tanks
= 55$

Down to 945$ left to spend on this tank.
