= Fish only, and FOWLR
= Fish only with live rock. A reef system should also consist of lr
and sand as well. There are lighting requirements to think about with a reef. If I were beginning, I think I would do a FOWLR
so I can get experience with it. Reef tanks can get expensive! Take your time and research though. This is a hobby of patience, and without it, you will be disappointed.
Also, remember you have a 29g tank, so if you like a particular fish, check the requirements (tank size) for them. liveaquaria.com has a pretty good chart for determining tank size for fish, temperament, and feeding. Good luck to you!
