I would be more willing to suggest about $1000. The key here is to take your TIME. There is a website you may know about-Craigslist.com. They have fish tanks and stuff all the time. They are all second hand, cheap, and local. I would spend NO MORE than $100, just be careful there is no copper in the tank, and that copper has never been used. TAKE YOUR TIME...AGAIN :roll:...and shop around. You can also find live rock on craigslist, and the good part is, it's already mature and cured. Animal Mother found some nifty crushed limestone at home depot (I don't remember what it's called :bonk:) that would be enough to fill a 75 gal with enough sand for $5 if I remember right. You will want a very good protein skimmer that is preferably rated to a tank 1.5-2 times the size of your tank. Finally, the filter, I wouldn't spend more than $100. There are many different types, but they all do the same job if you ask me. Again, make sure it's rated to a tank 1.5 to 2 times the size of yours.

Here is a "shopping list" for a 75 gallon tank:
• 75 gallon tank on craigslist---$100
• Live rock, 100 pounds---maximum $400
• Sand---$5
• Skimmer---$100-$400
• Filter---$100
• Accessories (buckets, test kits, etc.)---$50
• Total---------------------Maximum $750-1055

Remember, you will be spending more money on food, some people on tonmo have to pay $80 a week in the winter to get live food. depending on where you live, it could be cheaper.

if it's used, make very sure that it hasn't had any copper treatments used in it... even if it was a long time ago, it's lethal to cephs in small quantities. Otherwise, it sounds like a great deal...

There are actually two species of bimacs, one small-egged and one large egged... the large-egged ones can be raised (with a lot of resources) but the small-egged ones are pretty much impossible.

We haven't heard much from Zyan Silver's dad recently, but at last report, he was going to continue Zyan's breeding program.
