thanks for the info and which Tunze are you using? I was thinking of the Tunze 9004 but it looks like a surface skimmer so a AutoTopOff would help a constant water level.

I think for now, I'm going with a protein skimmer (HOF or in tank), heater, 2 small powerheads. I'm hoping the skimmer, rock, rodi water and powerheads is enough to keep a 30 gallon tank clean. But I do have a old HOB carbon filter if water test don't seem good enough.

It's a lot to hang in a tank but it will do for now until I can get better and move onto a sump system.

My first saltwater fish tank - need some input

If you get a dark back ground on the tank it at least hides some if the ugliness. If you pick up one of the larger aqua clear hob filters (70 or 110) you can usually find a heater small enough to store in there, cleans things up a little in the tank
