new tank

newbie to saltwater and recently bought a biocube 29. I'm going on week 4 now and all seems to be okay. I have read so many posts and so many different ways of setting up my biocube that it's quite over whelming. I'm currently just running the stocked equipment it came with besides that I added heater and filled the extra slots with LEDs . I have about 30lbs of live sand and 25lbs of live rock. I also have 10 snails and 10 hermits. I also had two feather dusters that came attached to rock. Any feedback of what u think I need to do or others have had luck in let me know. I've heard from take bio balls out to get media basket. My LFS tells me to leave balls in. Click image for larger version

Aqua scape looks good! What are your readings at? Maybe soon it's time for fish

Sometime LFS rocks are already cured/cycled... If your ammonia is 0 and nitrites 0, then go for your first fishs.

Last week ammonia was about .25 and nitrates 5.0

Do I remove bioballs and put in media basket?
