hi

The costs can vary greatly, as things like tank size, brand names, your local shop and even your location in the world can make a big difference.

But for a ballpark figure and asuming that you live in the US or UK I'd put aside about a couple of hundred to do it right :)

have a look at the equipment list and tick them off on an online retailer or a shop near you :)

Cheers
