That should probably work. All fish don't have the same "swimming area" if that makes sense so I don't see why not. It would just be about making sure the bio load doesn't get out of hand and monitoring levels. I honestly don't even check my biocube anymore because I found a good medium with water changes that everything seems cool.

You going to do any mods on the biocube? I took my hood off and threw a radion xr15 pro on. I have a aquatic life 115 nano skimmer I think it is in chamber 1 (decent skim mate). I also have a Tunze 3155 ATO.

I still use those pads with carbon and filter floss on them and underneath I took out the bio balls and put in some ruble. I would definitely recommend taking the hood off and get some LEDs over it after the power compacts go downhill after 8 months.

Yeah I'll definitely be going for LEDs. Haven't put any thought into any other mods. Is a skimmer necessary for a 29g or is it just to save on maintenance?

Not really sure about that. I had the coralife biocube skimmer they offer and it was terrible and broke on me a couple months later and barely pulled any skim mate. Went skimmer less for a couple months and everything was fine with my water changes. Then I bought the aquaticlife 115 skimmer because I felt naked without one and it pulls a decent amount of skim mate. Not that black tar you see people getting but a real dark brown/yellowish skim. Not a great pic below but you can see a little

A skimmer seems like a good call. I'll see how it goes skimmer less but if it looks like I'd benefit from one I'll definitely get one ��

You can avoid using a skimmer under 30 gallons as you can do large water changes to manage parameter issues.

That was what I had been told before, but if I can find a quiet skimmer it's not gonna do me any harm right?
