Lets see...

Marineland 55 gallon tank and stand - $200
Live sand - $60
Salt - $30
Buffer - $11
Minerals - $11
Live rock $300
Eheim return pump $100
overflow piping $60
Custom sump setup $280
Service and setup - $200
RO/DI unit - $150
Salinity rerfactometer - $30
TDS meter - $5 (hadn't realized I didn't need it)
Copper test kit - $10
Tank thermometer - $5
Micron Mesh bag - $10
Cuprisorb - $15
Saltwater test kit - $30

So, so far $1550. And I still have to buy a protein skimmer.

It's expensive, but really it isn't a bad price for anything, and is more expensive because I opted for setup and installation as well as having the sump made to fit within my stand. As well, everything is brand new instead of hunting around on ebay or whatever.
