    Hi all, got my hands on a 14g biocube I would like to start up. Looking to avoid the LFS and save some money

    15-20 live rock
    Live sand (if necessary)
    100w heater if you have one not being used
    Instant ocean (or something comparable)

    Can't think of much more, but if you can, let me know! You can respond here or email me at: efbasinger at gmail

    Yeah it will cost you more at the LFS, but the advice you will get as a newbie will be well worth the initial cost. You are near a good LFS.

    Not too many reefers in the club.

    May want to try CMAS or WAMAS...

    Other than the heater it kind of hard to just have that stuff sitting around and still be "live". Go buy a pound or two of live rock and the rest dry base rock and seed your tank. Live sand is unnecessary. Just go buy some regular SW safe sand that's "dead" its cheaper. Tropical Lagoon sell coralline covered live rock for 9.99 a pound.
