They look good, but usually I recommend Hydor powerheads. Fit your budget though, not what I sayaquanerd13 said:I found these. Are they good?
Keep it simple to start, and add the clowns last (assuming you get nothing more aggressive) I'm not sure about the hermit crabs, so that would be a question for Jester.aquanerd13 said:And of course fish. So i am definitely going to get Clownfish. What about Hermit Crabs? Are they good for beginners?
You could do a few of those, plants:aquanerd13 said:I really like the Firefish to. Are there good saltwater plants that i could get?
The ro/di unit is 50 bucks more. If it is really worth it, i will get it, but would rather not spend $130 instead of $80. OMG i forgot a test kit!! I am getting an API saltwater master test kit. I have the freshwater version and i am very happy with it.nikm128 said:They look good, but usually I recommend Hydor powerheads. Fit your budget though, not what I say
For your list:
That light will work as long as you're not doing corals
Keep in mind that dry rock has to be qt'd and cultured in your tank which makes the cycling take longer, that rockX3 is good
Glass heaters are a big no, the salt eats off the enamel which releases it into the water, and puts the glass at risk of cracking. Full metal, or plastic like an aqueon pro
CaribSea sand is great, I won't say exactly how much you'll need yet since some fish will like it deeper for digging
Those powerheads should be good
Are you able to get the RO and DI unit? I think it's about $10 more, very worth it
Refractometer is also good, a TDS meter would also be worth it
DON'T FORGET A TEST KIT!!!
Yikes, I forgot it was on sale when I got mine. RO is fine, but both is better. I think if you want to keep inverts and possibly coral the extra money is worth it, up to youaquanerd13 said:

Hate to say it but API is the worst of the test kits for saltwater. Red Sea, Salifert, Hannah and Nyos are all better options.aquanerd13 said:
Oh, thank you! that is a trap I would have fallen into.Jesterrace said:

I have no clue being honest here
So, Bulk Reef Supply and Marine depot are going to be your best friends here. BRS offers rock called Reef Saver rock at $2.99 a pound, plus you can also request which types of pieces you want. It'll save you a few bucks there. IMO I would skip the tidal and go with an Aquaclear 50-100. Those things are not only beasts that will chug forever, but with a few bucks and some very easy DIY, you can make it into a cheato refugium, which wil lhelp you immensely in keeping water parameters in line.aquanerd13 said:Anyways, here is my updated amazon list
There are cheaper ones, and ones that are easier to take care of. Should no, can absolutely as long as the fish you pick are reef safeaquanerd13 said:Will corals be super hard and/or expensive? Should I have corals for my fish?
