I am so excited! I finally ordered my Biocube 29, stand, and other supplies! They should arrive on November 15-18. I have researched all of this for so long it is not even funny. I am modding it so that i take out everything in the second chamber and make a fuge. I am having bags of carbon, chemipure elite, and purigen.

Once I have the tank running, I am ordering 20 lbs of Pukani Dry Rock and 30 lbs of Aragonite. And then the cycle begins...


My eventual stocklist will be:

2 B&W Clownfish
1 Yellow Watchman Goby
1 Green Clown Goby

I would also like 2 fire shrimp with my CUC, corals, and you can't forget the Green BTA :}


Once I have the refugium set up for a while and a pod population, I will try for a blue mandarin. But that is in the distant future LOL.

This is not my first reef tank, so I know the rules/regulations I have a 90 gallon reef in my living room. And numerous freshwater communities.

Any comments are welcome!!! Thanks for reading!

Are you getting the Ora mandarin? I've been considering that.

If I can find a cheap one. I would prefer an ORA, but a wild one may have to suffice if I can't find an ORA one for $60 or less in a few months.

For some reason the stand arrived today. Nothing else. Well at least I have time to set up the stand before the tank gets here already got the doors set up.

After 2+ hours on my Earth Science paper, this seems fun.
