A very popular issue .
They are paid to make a sale and tell you what you want to hear .
Very common mistake is everyone always wants a bigger tank .
Plan what you wish to stock , research what you need then build to suit your wish .
Something To look forward to , and work towards .
Rome wasn't built over night and neither were any great reefs .

Yes sir..I plan on starting with just live rock and fish.. then.maybe in a few months moving on to coral... I plan on a pair of clowns..perhaps a pair of gobys? It sucks because going off my LFS advice i already have my 8 gallon cycling with live rock in it..I guess I'll just move the rock over to the cube

The clowns are a good choice .
Gobys are not unless you can get a mated pair .
Very territorial and will fight .
Don't get me wrong ,
This is your tank and learn from it as a experience .

Any suggestions on cleaning it up? Vinegar right? What about all the filtration chambers? Do I clean them as well or leave them as is

I have an evolve 8 and i put a single fish in it, a tailspot blenny. He is always in a ho;le in the rock so he doesnt swim anywhere, lol, perfect for an 8 gallon tank. Depending on the fish you might be able to get one in there. I am going to concentrate on inverts in mine which is another option.

I also have a 29g biocube which is such a great tank! Easy to maintain and you have soo many more fish options! You still have to stay small fish wise but you can have several fish if you choose right.

Good luck and hope to see how well you do.

A cup or two in a full tank should be good. Just be sure to rinse it really really well.
