They said it came with salt mix and bio balls and stuff so it has the capability but don't know if it's worth it

The only real difference I see is the overflow is on the opposite Side than a biocube!!

It looks like the newer biocubes. If it holds water then its a valid tank, well, depending on the price. Wont be able to keep much as far as fish but its a good tank.

If it were me, and the tank holds water then I would get it. Could always get one or two very small fish (not clowns) and add a bunch of inverts and some low light corals,

Hmm...if it were me i would put a small goby and pistol shrimp pair in there and maybe a clown goby. The goby/shrimp pair are very cool to watch too. They live together in the same little burrow of sand and the fish will bring food to the shrimp. Its super neat.

I';d say about 1 to 1.5 lbs of rock total. So if you add 10 lbs I would put in 3 lbs of live and base for the other 7lbs. Put in 20lbs and then add 6lbs of live, 14 of base you get the idea.

I've been looking at the gobies I think I want the yellow watchmen a male and a pistol shrimp for my little nano and I don't know what else is there anything else that can go with them besides gobies?? And do most soft corals only need lower levels of light?
