Is this stupid?

I have a 40 breeder. 2 clowns 2 damsels and sleeper goby. A few soft corals.
We are going to be building our house soon. In the process we will be moving in with my mother in law.(yikes!) it will be into one large room with my 90 pound dog and 2 cats. I'm thinking its going to be cramped in their!

My latest idea is to buy a 29 gallon biocube. Is this stupid?? I like the plug and play idea. Slightly smaller, closed top. Everything hidden.
Does anyone have this? Pros cons? Thanks

Are you keeping the 40 gal or transferring the livestock to the bio cube?

Bad idea if you plan to keep the livestock. You should prob get rid of either the damsels or clowns. Otherwise you should be good.

5 small fish still eat, poop, breath, and need room for territory. You might be fine, but the other thing is biocubes have rather poor filtration, no skimmer, no refuge (unless modded), no media reactors, so you'll want to do a lot of water changes. Good news is this is good in an overstocked tank
