Not bad, you could have searched for weeks to get a better deal, least you have it now and can begin the work. lol

So many fish are great in that cube, gonna be hard to pick just a few.

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

It will indeed be difficult! I definitely want the pair of Clowns, but other than those two, I am not quite sure. At the LFS today I saw a pair of Midnight Clowns which were breathtaking! Completely jet-black, with one having a bit of orange on the mouth.

I feel like I should be pretty prepared with this aquarium since I had that 34g Red Sea Max for the longest time. Remember that one? I had quite the adventures with that guy!

I am thinking that I am going to set the tank up how it comes, and will decide later down the road if I need to change anything.

I actually lied in the past post, LOL. The tank was actually $389.60.

For simplicity sake I would get the media racks from intank at least. That will give you the option of running whatever floats your boat and its much better filtration than the single cartridge filter thing. lol

Did you use the wet-dry part too?

Not sure if this matters for filtration, but I am not sure I will be keeping corals with this tank. I am thinking I will keep it fairly simple, but will make up for corals with some inverts like crab and shrimp. FOWCAS (Fish Only With Crabs And Shrimp).

Even with a "FOWCAS" system, lol, I would still add the media rack. Just makes water changes and maintenance so much easier. You also wont get nitrate issues if you remove the bioballs. They tend to catch a lot of crap that floats around the tank and will just build up and muck up your parameters. Just my opinion though.

OHHH, so the fuge and bio ball compartments are already separate, right? So if I got the media basket, I could still the use the refugium part?

Thank you!
