I got a 29 gallon biocube and I loved the look but hated all of the equipment. It didn't seem safe. I bought it used and it must have had some issues. I know they're cool little tanks. However, for the sake of avoiding an electrical fire, I got a 25 gallon tall tank and switched everything over. Used some established filter media to try and keep it from cycling too bad. I also am daily dosing Seachem Stability. I used aragonite live sand and transferred some from the established tank over. All rock is live rock (25-30 lbs). Currently has 2 T5 coralife 10,000K bulbs on it. I plan on adding 2 more in the morning. Has a standard filter on it. Going to add another one in the morning and a powerhead as soon as I have a chance. The only ones I have are 800 gph wave makers. Lol! I need a smaller one. The temperature is 78 degrees so I'm trying to move the temperature up slowly. All fish, CUC, and corals look to be adjusting well. Just have to keep up with my parameters and water changes. I'll post pics tomorrow.

Thanks and thanks! That clown was the first saltwater fish I ever bought! I don't yet. This morning my 6-line wrasse showed a few signs of stress so I haven't arranged my rocks yet. Everything is just kind of hanging out for now. Tomorrow I'll rearrange and take some pictures. the chaeto is new for me. I've never had it before.
