Hello everybody! I just recently purchased a 29gbc and Im not sure whats next. Skimmers, powerheads, pumps and heaters all should be added if not upgraded according to what I've read here but how do I know which ones to buy if I have no experience at all?

Hi. I just got a cube a few days ago too. Im going with the one koralia 425. Should be enough with the output flow.
If you check out my other posts I have one for 29 cube with lots of good suggestions.

Good luck

I've actually read a couple of your threads. How is your biocube treating you? I think thats the ph I'm going to buy. Have you bought a skimmer yet? The oceanic skimmer is not getting good reviews so what other choices do I have that can fit perfectly in the first chamber and will get the job done?

With such a small tank we can get away without a skimmer but you have to keep up your water changes. I had a 29g regular tank then upgraded to a 55g sw reef. the 29g when i had it didn't have a skimmer until later. I never had any water issues.

I ended up buying a remora skimmer that i still use now on the 55g. Not many people on here like the remora but I've never had any problem with it. I think they make a baby size remora too.

heres a good link.

They have alot of the tweaking stuff for cubes.
