First saltwater tank

This is my first saltwater setup and wanted some input and opinions so far..any advice would be great thanks! Going to be FOWLR, maybe a few moderate light corals, So far I have 16lbs live uncured rock, am getting about 13 more lbs, it's a 29 gallon tank, and 20lbs sand. How is my rockscape so far? As I said I'm new to salt lol

Looks pretty good so far. Adding some more rock will make it look a lot better in my opinion.

Do you have a powerhead in there? i don't see one.....

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

No power head at the moment, but I do plan on gettin one.. Any suggestions on a reliable one? I heard Koralia Evolutions Nanos were great

I would go with a koralia 425. I use them in all my tanks and have not had any issues with them.

The 425 would be good on the 29 gal? And would I only need just one or two heads?, since it's going to be mainly rock

I have a koralia 425 on my 29 gallon reef and love it. I also have a Maxijet 400 because it was cheap. I would definitely get 2 so there are no dead spots be hind the rock or anywhere else.

I have never thought the 425's where enough flow in my 29g. Depends what your keeping, i think you would be happier with 2 550's but thats just my opinion. Cubes may be different, mine is a standard
