    Hello All.

    I’ve been on here a while now and post the odd time but I’m here for advice please! :) I’ve always done freshwater fish in the past and have always wanted to go for a Marine setup (Fish & Coral) I’ve been researching and also been to my LFS for advice to see how much this hobbie could cost to set up.

    So I’ve been looking about at my LFS for which size and style tank suits me and come across a Aqua Marin 900 (Which my LFS told me this is a new brand) which I thought was nice.

    So I went through all what I would need to setup with them and I came to a ball part figure of £1800. This would include the following -

    Tank
    Stand
    Lights (Not the lights in the photo)
    Sump
    Heater
    Pump
    Skimmer
    Sump pump
    Test kit / refractormater
    Live rock
    Salt water
    Substrate

    May be difficult for you guys to say but just wondered what all your thoughts were on the price ?

    I’ve attached a photo of the tank setup in the LFS.

    Thanks all for any advice

    Do you know what lights ?

    They can vary massively in price

    Two rations for example would be £1200

    And then the price would be very good
