I will have around $1,200 to spend on equipment for a 265 gallon aquarium.

All I have is the aquarium(no overflows), powehead, and the stand, plus salt, test kit, hydrometer.

I need the protein skimmer, lighting, filter,overflow box, etc.

What equipment would you buy for this in the budget?

I would like everything to be as energy efficient as possible.

What type of livestock do you want? It really depends on what you want because then you can see where you can cut some corners.
