Wow way out of my budget lol
by no means do you neeed the exact setup as me.. There are really nice options out there that do not break the bank.. Really cool AIO systems that have everything except the lights for about $800-1300.

Honestly a lot of reef stuff you can get used to save money, the tank itself included although that can be risky but a tank of this size is always going to be expensive.

I have a reefer 350 too and the tank itself new is going to be $2,500. You can do Chinese pumps and get 2 power heads and a return pump new for $200 total or go something like ecotech/AI and Spend $800 on pumps new or try to find them used. Skimmer is great used because the replacement pumps are usually less than $100, a lot of the value is in the acrylic construction which as long as someone didn’t break it won’t go bad.

lights are a problem on bigger tanks too, I have 2 XR30s over mine so lights with the arms were $2000 just for lights. Then if you want an apex/trident/DOS for auto testing and dosing 2 part that’s another $1500-$2000.

it’s an expensive hobby for sure ha the smaller you go the cheaper it is.
