    Skimmer
    Powerhead
    Heater
    Live Rocks
    Aragonite
    Testing Kits
    Glass Canopy
    Decent Light
    Hydrometer
    Thermometer
    Water Conditioner
    Power Strip
    Electrical Timers
    Marine Salt
    Background

    All that and no fish.

    Actually I m glad I got it. Cause its also a filter too so my water isn't cloudy and it since my rock formation is tall it helps circulate my water where my powerhead cant.

    It sounds so far that those cute little clowns and tangs you see in fish shops are really little devils coming to take all you money by looking cute... lol.

    I found a small Eclipse nano-cube for only 49.95 at Petco. A great deal compared to what I have seen on the internet. To start, I will buy a bucket of pre-mixed SW, coral sand, and the nano cube. Once I get My tank set-up I will purchase LR. When my tank is done cycling I will probably buy a test kit, hydrometer, and sea salt.
    When I have time I will go to Petco with a notepad and find the overall cost of my starting setup.

    I have no idea lol. I guess I will get a test kit before cycling.

    Would this keeping routine work?:
    1x per week 1/3 water change
    1x per week ph test
    Watch aquarium daily

    Would bio-wheel filtration work? It is included in the tank I am going to get.

    i do a ~10% water change every week.
    throughout the week i top off the water.
    i have not done a ph test yet, though i think i should.
    you will need a calcium test and a magnesium one too. in addtion chemicals to boost those trace elements. strontium and iodine are needed too but to a lesser degree. you can buy something called C-Balance that dave66 recommened to me that will boost all your trace elemts accordingly. i couldnt find it at my lfs so i had to go with other stuff. for the time being i monitor calcium and magnesium quite often (bi-weekly) and add the elements daily. later as your tank matures u don't need to monitor the elements all that much (every 2 weeks - monthly) but you will still need to add the trace elements a couple times a week (thats what my bottle says).

    for your filtration system i have no clue.
