2- why did you get it, how much time did you spend deciding
3- how much money do you currently spend on your octo
4-how much will a tank setup cost me

Good questions...I would say that you are going to spend at least 500 dollars on a basic octo setup, and perhaps as much as 1200...depending on how fancy you want to get...
But really, think about the little "frill" items you get on a daily basis...fast food, candy, drinks...media...get rid of those expenses, and you will have a tank in no time...
