Help achieving this: Link inside.

Hey guys, I'm looking to set up my first tank. I want it as primarily a nice little tank to house a couple of Clowns, maybe a Royal Gramma and a Six-Stripe Wrasse OR Green/Blue Chromis. The tank I am looking at buying is a 35 gallon (Long - 24.5", Deep - 16.5", Height - 21").

Here is a link to the tank and what come with it:

eBay Australia: Buy new & used fashion, electronics & home d

As I said, I am looking to set up a small marine tank. Some live rock to grow a little coral (nothing too fancy, see below for an idea of what I'm aiming for).

‪35 gallon saltwater reef aquarium‬‏ - YouTube

I was wondering, on top of what comes with that tank in the ebay link I provided, what else would I need? Obviously I will need some salt, live rock (about 30 pound worth?), but what else? I don't want an overly complicated set up, and it can't be too loud as it will be for my bedroom.

Thanks so much for any assistance!

Anyone? I decided I'd add an Aqua Clear 110 (turned into HOB refugium) with the tank instead of the inbuilt filtration system.

How did you turn your hob into a refugium?

I haven't yet, I was looking at this as a possible option:

Aquaclear 500 (110) refugium - Tropical Fish Forums at the Age of Aquariums

Yeah I was told it should cover my refugium needs in a 35-40 gallon tank, which sound goods. Pretty cheap too.

Any recommendations for lighting/heater/circulation pump? I do want to grow coral, not a HUGE amount, just a bit like in the video I linked.

Id add a power head and some sand looks like the lights are T5 so you should be good to go API liquid test kit and some way to measure the SG. I use Koralia PH's a 750 will work for you. also a pail with a heater and a small ph you want to match temps and SG when doing your PWC's There's a few very goods treads on whats needed for a salty
