I used to own one and I loved it, and they only cost about $100-120. I just sold a grand worth of equipment off my reef and another $500 in corals so my budget for this tank is pretty much covered. I've actually broke even
so far with setting up this tank with the sales off my old one.
I'm not ruling out the possibility of building my own, but time is something I have precious little of. I don't mind spending some money to have an off the shelf solution.
