New tank with pic

Here is my first saltwater tank. Its a 29 gal. FOWLR

Equipment so far:

29Gal All-Glass
Fluval 205
Rio 600 Power Head
Rena 150 Heater
Coralife Aqualight T-5


I currently have 40 Lbs of CaribSea Aragalive sand and just added 30 Lbs of live rock from Gulf-view. This rock looks GREAT!!!


Tell me what you guys think so far about the tank and its setup. I am thinking about adding a Protein Skimmer. Any suggestions? I was looking at the BAK-PAK or RamoraC. Also any Beginner Fowlr books would be great too.


Thanks Vince

I have a 29 gal also
Are you going to be able to get enough surface aggitation with your PH pointing towards the front like that?

I have mine on the sides pointing up to the surface and a Penquin 350 creating some surface movement.

Just a thought....

Nice rockscape

Its pointed up and towards the center of the tank. It keeps everything flowing nice and gets it to the filter inlet. But i dont know this is my first tank should i move it to the side?
