How long has the tank been up and running? Have you considered some corals?

About a week but it's fully cycled. Yes I was thinking corals but wasn't really sure which would be able to survive with the lighting in the biocube.

I have the 29g cube myself.

I for sure would look at some zooanthids, very colorful, easy to keep and realtively cheap. Mushrooms are alsos a great choice, for color as well as they don't need very much light. have you looked liveaquaria.com and checked out their corals? They have beginner packs that you can look at to see what kinds are recommended.

I haven't taken the plunge on corals in my cube yet, I have alot of other tanks going so it gets neglected sometimes. But it is perfectly capable of keeping corals as far as light. I wouldnt get into a birdsnest or any other SPS or hard corals though.

I just looked at liveaquaria.com and was wondering which type of corals would clownfish host? Anemone?

Ahh I see where youre going but I hate to tel ya, I don't think a nem is gonna work in that cube. The lighting for one, and the age of the tank. You need to have a stable tank for at least about 9 months or so.

On another note though, clowns won't automatically host anything, it's all a crap shoot. lol

Clowns have been known to quite frequently host corals but thats not alwasy good for the coral or the fish. My clowns were hosting an elegance coral, real expensive too, and it was awesome but they eventually almost killed it. i had to give it away. :-(

I had a nem, was more trouble than it was worth. LOL I rehomed him after about 2 months. he eventually took over half my tank he got so big. Plus some people say they can eat fish so that was the last straw for me.

I don't have one of those, but if you keep it away from other corals you would be fine. it looks to be one of the rampant growers so you might want to watch out for overpopulating the tank with it. Did you see the mushrooms and zooas? Check under polyps...

I think I'm going to go with this since it's easy to take care of and is cheap.

Dont rush it, shipping is expensive so you wanna get as much as you can in one order. Look around the site and see if theres anything else that catches your eye.
