Brauny: New Biocube 29 Gallon SW Reef Tank

Today starts my journey into the beginning stages of a Salt Water Aquarium. I just purchased from petsolutions a Coralife 29 Gallon Biocube for a great price and bought both white and lunar LED's. Shipment is expected on in a week. I will use this thread to keep you up to date on my progress. Big thanks goes to Dino and others who gave me advice and who will continue to give me advice as I learn. Thanks Brauny.

Biocube 29 Gallon Has Arrived

My Biocube has finally arrived and is in the box. Now I am nervous as heck and afraid I will make a mistake. Any guidance is appreciated. Thanks Brauny

Your very welcome buddy. Shoot away. What's got a hold of your nerves?

Unbox it. Check and make sure everything is there. Pump, filter etc etc. check for cracks in glass, plastic all over check with a flash light inside the chambers as well. I think last time we spoke you didn't go with the stand right?

No bother bro. Anytime you don't need a stand if you have a sturdy strong place to put it. Once you have a place all set up. Add some rock and then your sand and we'll get ya in your way to the cycling that bad boy.

Ok, Convict has been helping me all day, much appreciated. Doing leak test now and have my 23 lbs of live rock, live sand, ready to roll, will wait a few more hours to test if any slow leaks.

A few questions I need answered. My cover does not fit correctly, is there an adjustment or something, it is bothering me and it does not fit properly.

Also I installed another LUNAR and then a WHITE LED lights in slots #1 and #2 to go with the LUNAR provided and 2 sets of fluorescent lights. I hit LED 1 button and main Lunar lights up, I hit LED 2 button and then the 2 additional LED's I bought and insert go on. How would I do these once there is fish or corals in there? I do not know the sequence or even if I installed in the correct slots. Thanks again.
