Hi folks. I'm getting a 29 gallon biocube this weekend and have decided to set it up for marine. I'm SCARED! haha
I've been reading and reading, but I want to get a little personal input as well to ease my nerves. I know nothing about marine setups, although I have much experience with freshwater and have 4 established, stable freshwater tanks.
I live in a small town so have to do all my shopping at once when I go to the city to pick up the bio-cube. What are the absolute necessities I will need to get this tank started?
I want to make sure I don't forget anything.
Also, so I can start researching...what kinds/number of fish and coral will I be able to get for this size of tank?
I'm unsure how big or compatible marine fish are and there are so many that I don't really know where to start. I know I like clownfish and I'm fond of orange and pink, so having some orange and/or pink fish would be nice. Any directions on some fish to start researching? Any advice on clean up crew would be good too. I have a fondness for shrimp of all types.
I'm a research type but I'm overwhelmed by the AMOUNT of research to do here. I would like to at least get the tank up and on a start to maturing in the next week or so though, then I will start researching fish. I have a feeling my choices will be limited in my area.
