cost to convert tropical to marine #1
looking around on ebay for a tank i have found one i like but its a tropical tank. having had tropical several years ago i fancy having a marine setup, assuming i get a tropical 3ft tank, how much roughly would it cost to convert to a marine tank, this will be on a budget so just the basics.

Re: cost to convert tropical to marine #2
u'd need

a skimmer, extra powerheads, test kits, live rock?, lighting (mibbe), additives, all in all you'd probably be lucky to have change from about £500 once its all added up.......... theres maybe only 1 or 2 real expenses ( skimmer n LR) but all the other bits n bobs are 30 quid here n 40 there
never boast about ur malu.............. i did n it got chewed up a few days later
