Back from the store. There are so many things there! Clams, fish, crabs, corals, ect. It was so much fun.
I asked the guy at the store about starting my first SW Tank. He said they have a 34g cube tank that has all the filtering equipment in the back of it. It has three compartments in the back. He said the skimmer was in one compartment, the other filter media went in the other and the other compartment had little bottles for freshwater. The bottles point down and he said you had to keep freshwater in them. And he said that the top part of the skimmer had to be emptied. The whole set is about $350 not including lighting and the stand. He said stands will run me about $150-300 and the lighting could be around that as well.
I was thinking either a FOWLR or a mini-reef. Oh and live rock at this store is $11.99/lb.
