AquaPod, Nano Cube, Bio Cube?

I am leaning towards a 29g Bio Cube for a small reef setup prob ending getting it from petco or something b/c our local petstore is way overpriced! Could anyone help me by letting me know what else I will need to get or what all i will need to get started for a sucessful reef tank!

Heres a basic list:
Heater
Dry argonite (sand)
Powerhead
Salt
Refractometer
RO/DI water

Then once everything is up you can get probably 30 lbs live rock which will be most of your filtration. Make sure you read up on cycling! Do not add fish till your tank is cycled.

I have personally maintained the 14g BioCube, and have to say they are nice setups. The 29g is nice as well they are just Big. Good luck, and welcome to the hobby.

The only thing I would suggest ontop of skae310's list is a test kit. Make sure it has atleast Nitrate, Nitrite and Ammonia.
