Have $200.00 to start a reef tank, is this enough?

I've always loved the ocean and want to create a slice for myself.  Will $200.00 be enough to get a decent size tank going?

Thank you

I'll sell you a nub of the newly released VividAquariums Confetti acro for $180 and you can put it in a $20 goldfish bowl and be set!  Best $200 ever spent!^_^

Nope.  Come back when you have $2,000 and low expectations on what a "decent" sized tank is.

I was thinking like a 125 mixed reef.  How much on the low end?

 

Guess I had high hopes.  Should lower my standards

You were supposed to buy Dale's old 380 gallon and go nuts, remember?

$200 is def enough as a "down payment"... or basic equipment gathering and such.   really depends on how bug and exotic you want to get.  surf the forsale section here, craigslist, local fish stores consignments, etc.
