i been looking at doing this for awhile but ive decided to finally do it im moving into a apartment in a month at marshall and i have to leave my 55 gallon fresh water tank behind. so im gonna setup a 29 gallon biocube in my apartment. this is my first venture into salt water. i wanna set up a nice reef inside it and get a fiew fish i wanna put in a small dwarf lionfish and a couple bigger clownfish. clownfish big enough where the lion cant eat them lol. and wanna get some inverts in there. but anyway i know fish will come a while down the road after everything is cycled and settled for the reef. but ive did alot of research online and have learned a good bit but id like to get a good rundown with some experence. i know bigger would be better but the biocubes biggest is 29 gallon and thats about all ill have room for in my bedroom anyway. but i know ill need to get the tank,i figure about 25 lbs of live rock, protein skimmer,the sand and the other odds n ends. but gimmie a good rundown of what all i need to get and the process of initial setup n putting in the live rock. n where can i get it all local ill get the tank online probly unless i can find it around here for the same price.
Stop by and see us at Specialty Pets or go to Berts Pet Center either one of us can help you get started in the right direction. I am sure there are others on here that can also help you along in the process. JBJ nano cubes are also pretty nice if you decide to do something else than a biocube. I think if you do the biocube I would go with the halide light on it, it is much better imo.
