Can you get a picture of how the media basket sits at the top? Like to show how tall it is sitting in there. Mine sits pretty flush with the inside frame.
I can snap a picture if you like.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

I'll go take a picture now.

The other think i didn't think about when setting up the tank is the salt. Normally with a new tank I just add the salt to the tank after the water is in, but since this one is smaller and already has rock and sand, I am not sure that will work well. Maybe I should make a really high concentration salt solution?

The first photo is the the way I put it in. The second is a picture of it in......maybe I have it positioned incorrectly.....not quite sure where the water will enter.

That looks incredibly tall! I dont think its you either, lol, that def looks too tall. You have it seated all the way to the bottom right? And they should have given you a little duhickie that clips the basket to the rim of the far right compartment. I will take a shot of mine so you can see what I'm talking about.

Here are some quick shots of my setup. Dont mind the mess, lol, I just emptied the cube and in the process of putting it all back together. But you can see how it sits flush in mine. If you cant get it any lower in the compartment I would send an email over to intank and verify that you got the right basket. I dont think the dimensions of the old biocube and new ones changed so it should look like mine does.

So far, there is really nothing to report on as far as the tank goes. Currently I only have a Koralia and heater running while the tank is cycling. Once the tank is cycling, I will setup the filtration.
