Those are designed for a mature tank. I don't like a lot of the packs because they tend to throw in a few critters that I don't like, like hermits and sometimes crabs.

Also, most of the packs are desgined for the established tank. You want to build your cleanup crew as you build your tank, a few at a time.

I was thinking for a future purchase anyway. I still like the idea, and they do have build your own..I think I will end up doing that.. Id rather start ordering online with some inverts rather than a fish first, Im kinda hesitant about the fish.

IMO fish do better than inverts. Maybe it's just that inverts require much longer acclimation times. Good luck and keep us posted on your progress.

I agree with cmor, it's harder on inverts than fish.
