Yah, I'm thinking stay away too. I have the huge pleasure/luxury of having just found an EXCELLENT LFS
right down the road. The owner Marie has been a hobbyst and community expert for over 50 years and her son (who works the service end) has been doing it for 11 years since the shop opened. They are well known in cricles here in florida and he was asked to be on Tanked but declined because they pay "$0.00" for a full days work.
Anyways, he said that one for $100.00 could be good could be bad depending on what model because during that time frame nanos where "new" and somewhat still evolving. Some of the first ones had a lot of flaws so it depended on the model. I haven't heard back from the owner so who knows. I'm temtped to jump on the Biocube29 but 1. the guy was a D-bag at first and 2. It's kind of earilier than I wanted for a purchase.
I may hang loose till closer to x-mas and I really don't want to sacrafice my new 55gal to have it.
IN the mean time I'll just keep reading more. Oh BTW the LFS
guru gives your beginners coral recommendations a thumbs up!
Thanks for the list
I'm thinking for fish/invertibrates
1 Arrow crab
2 yellow Clown, i know they get bigger but I'm told they are the whore of the ocean as far as what anemone they will nest in including the cheap $12.00 ones
3. Mabye a Benny? did I say that right ?
4. Not damsels but the tourquies blue/green shinny little fish.
5. and a bunch of corals I can't remember the names to atm
Ps thanks for the mod pictures, they look great. The light fits well like that. What's the media tray for ? Refugium type filtering ?
