Bio balls
 
i just got a bio cube 29 and i was wondering if i should get rid of the bio balls or keep them?

get rid of them, they will slowly build up and collect debris and detritus allowing it enough time to break down into excess nutrients. your live rock will be all the bio balls you need.

do you have any suggestions as to what i should replace it with or should i leave it empty?

Leave it empty. You can always throw GFO or Carbon in there when you need it.
