Long before we had an endless catalog of All In One aquariums with most of what you need built-in, there were all inclusive aquarium kits. Rather than build in all the components of lighting and filtration needed for an aquarium, these kits from major brands like Oceanic, All-Glass and Tetra bundled a standard tank, light, hood filter and various accessories.
The all new Coralife Fish Only Marine Kit is just about one of the best saltwater kits we’ve seen in a really long time, coming with everything you need except the salt. The Coralife LED 29gal Marine Kit includes a standard 29-gallon glass aquarium, a basic blue & white LED strip light, a heater, hydrometer, thermometer, fish net and various additives you need to get started.
Obviously you won’t be getting the finest refractometer and brightest controllable multichannel LEDs the hobby has to offer, but this is still some great gear to get started. But what really brings this package together is the new Coralife Marine Filter with built in protein skimmer.
This new HOB filter from Coralife is actually packed with features including a self-priming feed pump with needle wheel impeller to drive the skimmer, carbon, GFO and biological media. Obviously if you’re a regular reader of this publication you probably wouldn’t consider this kit for your next reefing masterpiece.
However the Coralife Fish Only Marine Kit sure is a helluva package to get family members started with a saltwater tank, and it’s also a pretty nice all-inclusive package for putting together a nice quarantine tank. The entire kit costs just $199 and the only thing left to add is water and salt, and this package even includes a coupon for discount on Coralife salt.
