Default How much should I start saving up?

So I want a new tank. I want to set up a rimless Iwagumi tank, and I want it to be ADA. I also want it to be bigger than most of my tanks, so about 10 gallons. As far as ADA goes, I was thinking either the Mini L or the 45P. I kind of like the dimensions of the 45P better than the Mini L.

So do you think I could do an Iwagumi setup with HC, Blyxa japonica, and Staurogyne repens (some of my favorites) with pressurized CO2 (paintball) and a stand (homemade) for about $300? Is it even possible? I'm at a loss as for lighting, so suggestions are welcome.

Also: I want a canister filter. Suggestions are welcome as to what I should use for this. Lily pipes, etc too.
