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

Ok so I need a protein skimmer right? So I'll get the one made for that cube its like 30-40 bucks online. Do I need a refugium?

It doesn't come with one. Just trying to figure out what I'll need to get. What size heater would be good as well? Aqueon Pro? If so what watts? My bedroom gets pretty cold in the winter. And had AC for summer. Put it this way. Heat is maxed out and the bedroom is only 69 degrees. I just added a space heater to bring it up a few degrees for the baby and wife.

Anyway what do I need? What's not necessary?

You dont need a protein skimmer, or a refigium actually! I would buy the 40 dollar one withthe cube even though it isnt the best, but for a 29 it will do!

As for the heater, anything rated to around 40 gallons will be good enough. I have heard that aquons are good, but i bought some german brand lol
