Hey guys I am looking to get back into the fish hobby, as it has been about a year and a half since my last tank broke during a move. I have been thinking about doing a saltwater setup with a biocube 29. I feel the biocube would work out well in my 2 bedroom apartment so I wouldn't really want to go larger than that. In addition, it looks like the lid is more sturdy than most, which is important because my cat probably would get into it otherwise.

Anywho, to start out, does anyone have any suggestions on other equipment and the cheapest place to buy?

Bienvenudo. And welcome.

Craigslist is usually a great place to get relatively cheap equipment. Be sure to include denver amd pueblo in your search area.

Other than that here is really the next best place. Tons of equipment usually laying around in ppls garages

Welcome to our club. Also keep an eye on the Denver craigslist, there can usually be more to choose from up there.

I have a biocube 29 as well. I love it. I don't use the cover though. (Flipped over in the garage and shattered the damn PC light bulb and then I broke the new on installing it) I use a Kessil light over it now.

Romebaby has some skimmers and equipment for a 29. You wont have pm privileges till you hit 25 posts though.

Before your lid broke, would you say it was secure enough to keep a nosey cat from getting to the water?

Welcome to the madness!

Just wanna chime in on this, (if you don't mind) I don't know if the biocubes have changed their lids in seven years - I'd guess yes - but speaking from personal experience with the 14g, there's no way any of my 5 cats at the time could've gotten into the tank lol.

I used to have a 29g biocube and yes the lid is more than sturdy enough to have the cat sleep on it or lay on it all the time. Would probably be too hot and uncomfortable for the cat but it would hold it.
