Do you think that if I got the Biocube 29 instead of the 14 it would be better?

It would for sure give you more options. It's also not that much more money.
If you have the room and the extra cash I say get the 29g. Youll be glad you did. I find mine to be just the right size for what i wanted. Nothing humungous but still big enough to hold a couple interesting fish that i can look at all day.

It's also a great place to have delicate fish as you can keep a handle on them. Like my scooter. He has special dietary needs that I wouldnt be able to meet in a bigger tank.

Whatever you decide let us know! And we'll want pictures!

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

Yeah it is roughly $100 more for the 29. And then there would of course be increases in the amount of sand, rock and salt that I would have to buy to fill the tank. But then I could house more fish/keep them more comfortable. I am leaning towards getting the 29. Would you say it is cheaper to get supplies like LR,LS,salt at major chain like a petco or petsmart, or a local "mom and pop" pet store?

I would get supplies onlineif you can. I just bought 200gallons of salt mix for $47 with free shipping. For the rock I would get some cheap base rock from one of our sponsor sites, like reefcleaners for $2 a lb and buy a few lbs of LR from your LFS, or local store. I bought some LR from petco, and while I got a huge chunk of it for cheap it had die off on it for days and days...

Where are you looking to get the cube from? I bet I could find you a cheaper price. I paid $249 for my cube with free shipping and a $30 gift card to use towards fish.

wow that is way cheap! I ordered the 14 from petco for $169 w/ free shipping, but plan to return it as soon as it arrives. The 29 is on petco's site for 270, but it is out of stock. There is a new one on Amazon for $280. If you could find one for 250$ that would be amazing! If there are no local places here where I could get a deal like that, I would most certainly paypal you the $ if you would be willing to purchase and send it to me. I would of course pay the shipping and you could wait to ship it until payment had cleared. Where did you find that awesome deal?! PS - thank you for being so friendly and offering so much advise. Really nice to not be looked at as the lame newb haha

lemme do some price checking and see if any of the sites offer paypal as payment method, then you can order it all yourself.

You have a credit card or do you use paypal just through your bank account? Cause every site takes visa/MC

I have a credit card. I only mentioned paypal in case the price you were talking about was a local only deal, then I would paypal you the $. If there is a deal like that online then I can use a credit/debit card for payment no problem. You are awesome!
