Thank you guys very much for all the info. Yes I'm already having loads of fun
I love to research and look at pics and learn! Makes the day go by faster. Sorry for the late reply, I was caught up on the planted side of the sphere tonight solving a lighting issue and thanks to Aqua_chem and Convict I think I've solved it. Xing fingers
hopefully, knocking on wood... dancing jig, kissing blarney stone lol ... you get the picture.
As for the AC110 setup I'll certainly look into that. Convict you mentioned your friend had a 10gallon, is this the same friend with the AC110? I might make mom a home made 10gallon cube... Which AC110 did he get ? Looks like there are several diff versions with different voltages/flow rates and all are called AC110, example > http://www.google.com/products/catal...ed=0CFsQ8wIwAA
and you mentioned it has a refugium option? that would rock!
That @$29.00 one certainly would be cheaper than the bio cube lol . I'm gonna look into that.. feel free to link more of your friends 10gal pics and products with the specific AC110 model
Peace guys, more tomorrow I'm bushed.
Ps convict .. yeah I'm leaning towards the live sand and rock way ... I want this thing to support a large coral ecosystem. well large for it's size. I want to do the best I can with it and I'm under the impression live sand and gravel is the best approach. I haven't gotten to the point where I weight the pros and cons yet so if you feel like listing, list away
otherwise I'll research in when I get a moment and run it by my LFS
