Question 2 Questions

1) I have a 29g biocube, should I invest in getting a powerhead (there already is something like it from the third compartment in the back that has a pump)?

2) What would be the best equipment for water changes. I have 2 new buckets already for old and new water but can someone recommend a specific pump/tubing for the water changes? Post a link if you will!

For me it`s simple. I just use a 3/4 plastic tubing and I siphon out old water and pour in new PWC water.

1. Depending on your current water flow, you may want to add a PH.
2. Suck out the old water, the bucket and tube needs to be lower than the tank for the gravity effect to work and then add your water.

Personally, I have a 32G bucket of water that I keep a constant supply of pre mixed water and I use a ph to get the fresh water back into the tank.
Age is relative, you are only as old as you act....of course, this works in reverse....

Questions loved, heeded advice greatly appreciated!
