i think it's finally for real. i'm setting up a saltwater tank.
received a 29 gallon all-glass from a couple of my friends for christmas. i was always talking about setting up a heavily planted tank, and i think they just wanted to make sure i got started. i had it all planned out, every little bit: fish stock, aquascape, filtration, lighting, etc.
and then i have a completely random thought: fuzzy dwarf lion. and at first i tried to blow it off, but it persisted. then i started doing some reading and find out that people actually keep dwarf fuzzies in 29 gallon fowlr
good bye dreams of a mid -sized, lush underwater garden.
now this is the part where i need help.
the only thing i have right now is the tank. the thing that would be most helpful would be a checklist of what i need.
powerheads (brand?/flow rate?/etc?)

words of encouragement(hey tyler! welcome aboard! hope you brought your wallet, cause it's a long ride!/anything else you can think of...
thank you, everybody.
