More to the point, what sort of fish or plants are you going to try to produce? Are you doing this for fun or to make a profit? Also, does your fish room have to look great or do you just need something to hold water to grow out the livestock?
I've noticed a lot of people recommending Petco's $1 per gallon sales. There is nothing wrong with this, provided you want to spend the money for new equipment. However, if your doing this setup for making a profit, you want to keep money spent on equipment as low as possible. You may want to look around for used equipment or for items similar to the "three hundred gallon water troughs" mentioned above, but smaller.
