28G Nanocube LED

Good morning all...

I finally gave in to my drooling and indecision and have purchased the new LED Advanced tank. I am trying to determine, however, the maximum length of the heater so I can order that as well without waiting until the tank actually gets here.

I am making the assumption I need a standard 150 watt and if the length of the chamber is similar to the BioCube 14 the length is limited to about 10 inches.

Anyone know the answer?

Thanks

I found Hydor heaters to come pretty short. I have a 50w heater for my cube and havent used it yet as the cube tends to run hot anyways. I'm also in florida so I don't think I'll probably use it even. lol

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

Have to agree on the BioCube. My 14 is driving me crazy trying to maintain temp. I keep the house at 70 and have two outside fans aimed at the tank plus I have the lid lifted with pond netting attached to keep the jumping fish (Firefish) where he is supposed to be and I still run at about 76.

Evaporation is constant but if that lid isn't open it hits 80+ very quickly even with the additional outside fans going.

Ah the joys..... Gotta keep the kids (the fish and corals) happy.
