Hi.

A heater if you live somewhere that gets cold and a powerhead is about it. Other than the usual saltwater eqiupment.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Yeah, the biocube will have most of the dry equipment you will need. Stuff like sand, rock, etc, will be seperate. A heater, like Carey said, is the main thing that it doesn't come with.

The filtration is included in the biocube.

I wouldn't put any fish tank in front of a window unless you have some serious coverage and keep them drawn.

Yes, you can get a nice assortment of corals that will so well with the lighting included.

On a saltwater aquarium you will need more flow like a koralia powerhead, and a heater. There are a few things you will want like a refractometer and if you can an auto top off for it. If you are going to use a stock light you can have softies and LPS.

I wouldn't place an aquarium in front of a window if at all possible because of heat in the summer and cold in the winter.
