A tank that will need an added powerhead and replacement media, like the fluval c4 carbon and some GFO.

You can use the surface skimmer but I don't. Put the heater in the front of the tank on the left or right side and cut a hole in the hood so that it can come out. Be sure to have a power strip to handle all the plugs.

The tank doesn't have room in the back compartment for the heater?? I have the 28 gallon but it has tons of room in the back for a heater, mine also comes with two powerheads does the 24 gallon not?

Filter is just an overflow sort of thing. It pours into the back compartment and flows through whatever media you have before it is pumped out by the pump it comes with. And it needs a ph because the output from just the return pump isn't enough to keep the water moving in the entire tank.

It doesn't come with a heater from retailers, you should see if he is including it. And GFO is granular ferric oxide, removes phosphates, keeps algae in check.

Oh Kelsey, the 24 doesn't come with powerheads, just the return pump. And I suppose you can put the heater in the back, but I have mine packed with media lol.

You can keep zoas and shrooms pretty easily and for little money. Just keep parameters good, they do fine under compact fluorescent lighting.
