29 biocube

I'm thinking about getting a biocube to do a small reef. What do y'all think about the biocube or any other suggestions?

I hear mixed things about the biocubes. Just make sure you do some good research on them like reviews abd stuff.

I changed out the bio balls for media trays and a built in fuge. I haven't messed with the lighting and probably won't.

All you really need to add to a cube is a heater and a powerhead pretty much.

I added a koralia 425 power head. Adequate. I would probably go for a 550 if i had to do it again.
