I would spend the extra and get a 29g , you have alot more options for livestock and if buying new, there's really not that much difference in price considering your doubling your capacity.

Wonderful advice. If you can afford the bigger one, it's well worth it!

Stock lighting in the biocube 14 is good enough for anything but most sps corals.

Stock wise the 3 fish you mentioned is too much for a 14. In most instances I would tend to agree that it is too small for clowns as well. I have 2 black ocellaris in my 14 but they just lay around in 2 RBTAs all day and night.

I'd just leave stock lighting in and stick to 2 fish. The dimensions of the biocube make it a little different for stocking options.

Oh hell. You're doing way better than I was at eleven! I think my biggest pet project at the time was wild caught garden spiders. That... did not end well...

Get one small piece of live rock to seed the dry rock
