Thanks guys.
Is it stringy white waste? If so it could be parasites but also could be white because of whatever it was eating at the lfs. If it will eat nls pellets I would recommend feeding them only for a few days. If the waste turns the color of nls it is fine and you have nothing to worry about . If it is still white and stringy some medicated food is in order.

redsea's 29g BioCube Build #1

Yes, it seemed stringy. Hopefully, it isn't anything too concerning!

Thanks!

Not sure of there is something wrong. On one of the fins above the clowns head, the little spines have little white things on top....maybe they are protruding for some reason? He is acting fine....any ideas?

Also, I think the water from my machine has a blue tint! I am not sure if my water has always had this, but most likely not. It is kind of odd.


Thanks for reading! Hopefully both of these issues really aren't issues, lol.

Hi there! I'm thinking about setting up a 29 gal myself...how would you rate the biocube so far? Is it loud/cheap parts? I'm trying to find people that have them to decide.
And if I may, could i see pictures of your tank? Thanks a bundle~

Hello sharkiegirl! I changed a few things in my cube, so I can't really say how well the stock setup will work. Click image for larger version

You didnt by chance get any of the lfs water into your tank did you? the reason I ask is my one lfs adds copper to his fish tanks and ti has a blue tinge to it. Just checking!

Thanks Carey! I do remember getting a slight bit, but not much.

Oops, I forgot to mention that it is the water in my RO/DI bucket that appears to have a blue tinge. It is frustrating me because I need to top off the tank, but am afraid to continue with this blue water. I want to think that I am just making it up, but that probably isn't so realistic because a few people that have looked at it said it appeared blue.

It is so odd, because when I still had the tube of the RODI in my sink (not in the bucket yet), I noticed the water was blue, but just thought the blue tube was making the water look blue.

I don't know what is up.

How new are the filters on the ro/di unit? Is it the portable one from eBay or a BRS unit?

It is the ebay one from purewaterclub.

Setting up this tank was actually it's first use, so it has only been used a few times.
