Hi Retsek, welcome to the forum.
Some of the better shops are bpk, thinkfish, pets plus, premier pets and vinoos
there are lots of newer shops that I haven had a chance to visit but heard good things about them.

Skimmer, reef octopus is awesome and so is aqua excel. I've had both and I think the aqua excel is quieter and better in my opinion, but you cannot generalize and for a 60g maybe RO is better that AE, but have a look at reviews online for the specific model you are looking at.

try and look at the for sale forum, members are always upgrading and selling their equipment and you might get a good deal on a radeon.

welcome again and looking forward to seeing your setup

dubizzle will get you cheapest from people quitting.

Buy a quality skimmer, pumps and lights...CTLite from Vinoosfish in UAQ is probably the best budget light.

Hi restek...as the Mods said I suggest that you also adjust your budget and not go cheap on your set up as time passes by you will definitely change your mind invest
on quality equipment that can be used again even for an upgrade which I am sure it will come. Reactors and filter medias may or may not apply on your set up so choose wisely before buying them.
