Hey Lakersfreak (Love the name btw),

Haven't owned an all-in one setup before. I have noticed a lot of folks gravitate towards the biocube29. Just curious if you're dead-set on an all-in one or if you think you might try a DT & sump? Lots of options out there.

Maybe someone with a BC29 will chime in on how they like theirs.

Yes I do want an all in one....like the look and ease of it.

Is it true the red sea max 130d is discontinued??

The biocubes are what is hott right now. I have no experience with what you had or what they are going for. I just know that the 29's are very popular and easy to find on craigslist.

Thank you... I want an all in one that can handle some corral. My red sea max 250 was ok with the t5 lighting. But I'm looking to go smaller. For some reason all red sea max 130d prices have jumped up to the $800 range. I'd like to spend about $500 but can't decide which one is best. I'm stuck between jbj biocube and aquaeuroUSA. A local store is selling the aquaeuroUSA all in one for 350 AMD seller says its a really good tank, but likely he's saying that to sell that one to me so I don't know.
