Slitherbomb: thanks for the reply! Right now I am using new life spectrum to feed my fishes but I was wondering if I should mix fresh crushed garlic with this?

what is this new life spectrum thera that you are talking about? and what kinda pellets do you feed them?

Also I mean are biocubes worth it? cause I have a 29G tank but I want have all the NECESSITIES to properly care for the clownfish. Cause I mean I know that the biocubes have the filtration system thats good for SW tanks?

You can definitely mix in fresh garlic. It'll help. Once the clown becomes lethargic, then and only then do you go into medications.

I honestly don't like the dimensions of the biocube and would rather have the 29 as a tank, even if it only had a hob filter. Most of the filtering is coming from the live rock anyways. It also gives you more options for lights, which would have to be really good ones if you want an anemone.

Slitherbomb: ok so I am decideding to go with the 29G tank! now I was wondering if you could help me decide what I need for this tank?

So far I am going to get:

Heater
Hood/ t5ho light fixture ( does this take up a lot of your elect bill?)
Filter (what kind?)

Should I get:

airhead?
protein skimmer?

What other things would I need?

Well you need the essentials(salt, refractometer, test kit) then you will need powerheads, the filter( I recommend either marineland or aquaclear) rated for about 2x your tank, then maybe a heater, depending on the temp in your house(I don't use heaters, but my temp stays constant) and a good t5ho fixture. I recommend at least 4bulbs with individual reflectors. I really like the current nova extreme pro fixtures.

Also, the food I give my clowns has always been New Life Spectrum Thera+ a 1mm pellets. They contain garlic.
