This is what purchased so far,and I'm waiting on my T5 light from coralife. I wanted to know what I should use for a filter. I'm getting live rock and I know live sand and rock are a natural filter. Just wanted to be extra careful and get a hob filter, also just wanted to know what people preferred. R/O systems I have seen them attach to people tanks and if I should do that or not Should I just get one for my water changes and such. But what R/O system is a good one to start out with Thanks again!

Is the tank sitting on an TV stand? Or is that an aquarium stand? The lack of bracing in the front suggests it is the former. If that is the case, I'd would look towards getting/building a tank stand.

The stand is top of a sturdy dresser.I figured it being only 29 gallons it would be fine. The light is a two build light bar
