Question 27g cube tank questions

Hi everyone,

Iíve been interested in setting up a reef tank for over a decade now. Iíve done lots of reading and research. But time and money has always been a tight commodity. However, Iím about to acquire a 27g Marineland cube tank and stand for basically free. So Iíd like to setup a small reef in it. Iím aware of the possible difficulties in starting a small reef especially for a beginner like myself. But Iím determined to make it successful. Money is tight for me so this project is going to be slow going. My plans after getting the tank home and cleaned up is to purchase some dry rock (as much as I can afford and enough that is aesthetically pleasing. Then some live sand (probably Fiji pink) and then some saltwater. I plan to then start the cycling process (maybe Iíll buy the bacteria starter or go some other route). I donít plan on doing a sump (at least not yet). Eventually Iíll put a HOB protein skimmer as $ allows. My questions for the forum are advice on heater(s) and powerhead(s). Should I get two powerheads and set them on timers to alternate flow? I only plan to keep some fish, inverts, and maybe some easy to care for soft corals. No plans on LPS or SPS for a while, if ever (at least for this tank). Iím looking for affordable yet decently made equipment. I look forward to your suggestions! Thank you for taking your time to read my post & potentially for replying!
