As long as you laid the tank along several floor joists you'll be fine. I have my 55 and 20 sump in such a manner on a floor that was at one point chewed up by wood boring beetles. If this is fine, an non-compromised floor will do the job without issue.

I sense some MTS starting here! I love emerald crabs (if that's what you meant) I agree they are super cute! Here's a pic of mine.

That's good to hear, thanks! This will be good because I would love a Flame Angel again (or some kind of Dwarf Angel) and I miss having a tank large enough for one.

Yes! I am back here on AA full force. The fishes in the Bio Cube are doing well! I still have my three original, taking things slowly with this tank. Though I am SO getting an Emerald Crab soon, I so miss those guys! I remember mine up against the tank making a little heart, LOL. So cute! Oh, and their "dancing." I am coming up to my one year anniversary with my Black Ice Clown this January! WOW, time flies! The fish are behaving fairly well. The Clowns sometimes like to annoy the Firefish , but the Firefish seems okay. It stresses me out a bit, but I will keep assessing. As far as the two Clowns, they get along pretty well now!

Oh yes, I just adore Emerald Crabs! I love yours! I used to have one in my old 34g!

I have some unfortunate news to report this afternoon. My Black and White Clown passed.

I absolutely will not be adding any more fish until I can figure out this behavior issues with the Black Ice Clown, I have never observed such a territorial Clown in my saltwater tank-keeping days.

You could always join the 40 breeder club! LOL. I'm working on mine now. Sorry to hear about the clown.

I have seriously been considering that size! My room is pretty tiny, and it may give me added piece of mind with my large desk and BioCube also in the room! I think I just missed Petco's dollar per gallon sale, oops! It would be nice if I could get that going soon. That way I could move my Purple Firefish over as the first addition, and add my Black Ice Clown very last after all the other inhabitants have been added. Then I can kind of go backwards and stock the 29g, haha! I would think being the last added would curb her aggression towards other fish. She isn't too bad with the Firefish, but I see room for improvement!

Thanks for your input!

I feel your pain with aggressive clowns. My big pair are the most annoying things, to corals and fish alike. My poor Duncan can never eat in peace lol

OH RED! I am soo sorry to hear about your clown, you had a nice looking fish there. :-(

Some clowns are more territorial than others, it comes down to the actual fish as far as guessing aggressiveness. Was the clown a percula mix or an oscellaris mix? I have found that perculas are a tad bit more nasty than their friends the oscellaris.
I agree on the 40b too! I love the footprint, it makes for some nice rockscapes. Too bad you didnt live anywhere near me as I will be selling off my 40 at some time in the near future.

Good luck and keep us posted.
