We feel what is included is almost the bare minimum you will need to get your tank cycling and ready for your first fish or corals.

100% pest free, Reef Saver rock is by far the cleanest rock available, and with the chemical-free cleaning process every rock goes through it is hard to find an aquarium dry live rock that can give you the best possible start to lead to a successful reef aquarium. Reef Saver is one of the only sustainable options available for live rock and is not harvested out of the ocean, meaning that the removal does not hard any coral reefs making it one of our favorite types of dry live rock.
The larger particle size of CaribSea's Special Grade Sand keeps it in place even in some of the most high-flow aquariums. We have found that with the smaller particle sands, you need to be very conscious about how much and the direction of the flow within the tank or the sand may end up on one side of your aquarium. Special Grade sand is small enough for most gobies to sift through while being big enough not to be blown around with reasonable flow.
Easily one of the most essential pieces of equipment is a good RO/DI system. The BRS 4 Stage RO/DI System can be installed in just a few minutes, making 0 TDS water. This system is great for water supplies that are treated with chlorine or low-contaminant well water and can be easily upgraded to a 5-Stage system with an add on RO canister upgrade kit if you have harder to remove contaminants.
Using a quality salt is an easy way to ensure you are starting your aquarium off on the right foot. Tropic Marin Pro Salt mixes fast and can be used for any type of saltwater tank, with the balanced trace elements and optimized calcium and alkalinity levels, if you want to keep coral, you can know that they will have everything they need from the salt to be healthy and grow.
Easily and quickly measure the salinity of your freshly mixed saltwater or the aquarium water. By just taking a few drops of water and placing it on the prism lens, you can look through the eyepiece to see the amount of salt in the water. For almost all saltwater aquariums we aim for 35 PPT or 1.026 SG, and using a refractometer makes it easy to target and maintain the salinity.
Sicce Voyager powerheads are super quiet yet powerful. The 530 GPH of flow coming out of a single voyager nano is perfect for water movement in tanks up to 40 gallons and can be placed on a simple on/off timer to give an oscillating (wave) effect throughout the aquarium. The kit comes with two pumps, both of which can be used in the aquarium, or one in the aquarium and the other one to mix fresh saltwater.
Temperature is easily one of the most critical components of a healthy reef tank and is also one of the leading causes of failures. Eheim Jager heaters are by far one of the most reliable heaters on the market today, and with the included calibration ring, can be pretty darn accurate too. We do like to connect every heater to a secondary controller, but if there is one that we would forgo the controller for it would be the Eheim Jager.
What good is an aquarium with nothing in it? Good for up to 60-gallons of water, Dr. Tim's One & Only Live Nitrifying Bacteria allows you to do a fishless cycle with your aquarium, but also is the perfect additive to dose right before adding new fish. The bacteria will help stabilize and instantly create a biological filter that can help eliminate harmful toxins from building up that could be harmful to your fish.
