Sorry man my mystake reading in portuguese on a page and translating it to english here... I Meant "dead" rocks not corals the topic is a low tech salt water and coral is far more demanding. But all the rest is well translated, dead rock is far more cheaper and after 2 or 3 months she cames alive again if you have at least one piece of live rock inside the tank.

give a look at the topic, at least the pictures you will understand: www.ciclideos.com/forum/agua-salgada-mais-simples-que-agua-doce-t18372.html

The 1st ones are at day one, the video its the 1st year evolution an the pictures after the video are from present time.

this was not a cheap project

20 dollars on salt, wasted alot of salt with trial and error
10 dollars on sand a dollar a pound thats better then gravel :)
15 dollars Jebo heater- 75 wats
hydrometer- 10 dollars
12 dollars for bacteria to cycle aquarium
and about 10 dollars for the live rock

already had a filter and tank

and probably 30 bucks for fish.

i hope this all works out!
