    if your doing this for saltwater this is the easiest setup for a starter its basicly plug and play all you need is live sand live rock salt mix a water testing kit and a few other things like a hydrometer to measure water gravity decor is completly changeable if this is your first tank this is a great size but make sure u do lots of research saltwater tanks are not a forgiving hobby there very expensive and if you decide to have corals expect to spend easily over 500 american dollars alone just for your coral

    Source(s): than you should be good 29 gallons is a good size stocking for this should really only have 4 or 5 fish the filters not amazing but it doeswork a setup you should look into should be clownfish,firefish,chromis, gobies and theres multiple others get some hermit crabs to they are great cleaners snails really dont do much other than glass cleaning but with the curved glass they fall off alot

    I used to, they used to be so peaceful. But the newer aquariums, although purportedly better for the fish, are just too busy. And there are too many kids rampaging (literally) around--parents seem to bring their kids there and just set them loose and the kids go running and screaming around--if I were a parent I'd be more careful because pedophiles could easily haul a kid away and it'd be a while before the parent figured their kid was missing. I live in a fair size city and the last time I was at the city aquarium, people were leaving their bags and purses on these benches, unattended, and wandering off to look at the other tanks! Plus the entrance fee for the aquarium is something like $35 now--too rich for me to do.
