 Amazonian  I  think  that  was  call  as  a  fish  holding  tank  Smile  and  not  a  marine  tank.  
 
 Yes  you  can  try  to  make  it  as  economical  as  possible  initially  with  a  few  gift  from  friends  but  down  the  line  when  things  start  to  fail  you  will  end  up  investing  in  better  equipments.  
 
 For  a  FOWLER  u  don't  need  a  sump  u  can  live  with  an  external  canisters  for  HOB.
 
 Can  get  a  Reef  octopus  hang  on  skimmer  and  work  for  a  nano  or  smaller  tank  but  that  itself  is  going  to  cost  u  closer  to  10k.   So  budget  yes,  but  not  in  4  digits  :)
 
 Been  there  done  that,  killed,  wasted  -  now  investing  heavily  into  equipments.   
 
 Equipments  are  you  key  to  running  a  successful  tank  and  even  If  u  DIY  like  I  do,  it  is  not  cheaper.   
 
 The  best  way  to  start  an  economical  marine  tank  is,  as  a  fowler  with  just  a  pump  and  canister.  Later  replace  one  by  one  and  buy  expensive  equipments  and  slowly  go  from  fowler  to  reef  based  on  your  fund  supply  :)
 
 And  please  not  DON'T  add  sea  sand  they  have  silicate  in  them  and  will  slowly  leach  into  your  tank  to  spurt  your  Algae  out  of  control  and  u  can't  do  a  thing  to  control  it.  Go  bear-bottom  or  use  aragonite  sand  (again  investment).  Bear  bottom  is  the  best  currently.

 wow..  a  great  refresher...
 
 Just  put  up  things  a  bit  simpler...
 I  did  have  a  budget  (about  15X  you  mentioned)  for  my  marine....and  it  turned  to  be  an  yearly  one.....
 The  one  you  suggest  to  start  with-  is  it  the  weekly  one?
 
 Read,learn,  speak,  learn,  see,  learn....there  are  many  in  here  who  can  guide  you  and  help  you...  
 pls  take  informed  decisions...  you  are  playing  with  lives

 @MarineMania  not  sure  what  was  that  but  it  was  pretty  decent  and  nice  looking  but  algae  problem  was  there.  I  think  what  experts  are  saying  is  correct  and  it  was  just  an  example  of  low  budget  tank.  I  will  not  suggest  anyone  to  do  it  if  you  are  not  staying  near  seaside  and  can  take  pain  of  cleaning  algae  manually.
 
 It  looked  good  though  and  fishes/inverts  were  quite  agile  and  looked  fresh   ROFL  
 
   The  octopus  was  not  there  probably  dead  or  eaten  by  some  guest   Sad

 FOWLR  tanks  are  cheap,  dont  think  of  reef  tank....  if  your  tank  is  kept  in  a  dark  area,  far  away  from  sunlight,  and  if  its  minimum  60g  with  high  surface  agitation,  fans  and  led  lighting,  you  might  not  require  a  chiller,  but  you  will  require  an  auto  top  off  device,  since  evaporation  will  be  fast....  fishes  like  chromis,  ocellaris  clowns,  damsels  are  the  only  cheap  fishes  available....  LR,  1"  of  sand  max  is  enough,  +  low  bioload...  i  had  a  20g  cube  fowlr  for  2yrs,  housing  jus  1  damsel  and  1  chromis,  i  never  had  any  issues..  refractometer  is  a  must  buy..  So  in  a  60g,  no  more  than  6  fishes,  would  be  enough.  u  might  not  require  a  protein  skimmer,  jus  a  25%  WC  monthly...  if  u  going  for  a  reef  tank  then  you  will  need  chiller  and  skimmer  or  ATS  if  your  good  at  diy...
