It looks really nice, but you can get more bang out of your bucks if you build your tank from scratch.

It's a nice setup for a beginner but I agree you have more room for expanding if you build your own setup (tank, filter, light). Depending on the size of the tank you choose, building your own setup may cost more than $200 though. Remember smaller tanks need more water checks than larger tanks.

Petco's dollar per gallon sale is coming up. Start researching on the items you could have and want in your tank. This is the fun part of this hobby. I stay up late at night reading about equipment, livestock, and water quality. Watch craigslist everyday..

Enjoy the hobby!

24g is a good starter kit. I believe the cubes come complete with lights,filter, and heaters. Not a bad price either.

Do a search here for 24g biocube and see what others have done with them and it may give you ideas. It will be fine to hold clown fish and other small fish.
