bristle worms in a 14 gal biocube i am buying

I also am buying an interesting starter answered my own question read up guess they are ok DOH here is the ad if all looks good i think i will have it mar 11 11


This is 1 year old. I will be moving across the country soon. I set this thing up so awesome, you don't even realize. I made it as low maintenance as possible. Water change once a month and you are golden. Everything i have bought is easily valued at over $1300.including:
- Biocube 14 gallon aquarium
- Black/White Clownfish (hosting in coral)
- Yellow Clown Goby (so vibrant)
- Cleaner shrimp (helps keep fish clean and healthy)
- 20lbs liverock from vanuatu (came with a mystery crab that seems harmless and is extremely cool. He lives in the rocks)
- 20lbs livesand (black/white)
- Snails
- 1 electric blue hermit crab
- 1 red scarlet hermit crab
- 2 types of xenia coral (takes no special care...awesome)
- mini brittle starfish (probably hundreds)
- Bristleworms
- a pile of different insects
- ampipods
- Enhanced powerhead with more power than stock and rotating head
- Spare powerhead for backup and to mix saltwater fast
- Koralia nano
- Stealth heater fits in first chamber
- Second chamber is filled with liverock
- third chamber has chemipure bag and powerhead filter
- top tray in second chamber holds filter floss ( i have a roll of it, SO CHEAP/works better than biocube filters)
- Fresh lights with a backup pair incase they ever burnt out
- magnet cleaner
- glass algae scraper
- salinity meter
- thermometer
- 3 almost full different types of food
- syphonng tube
- pair of aquarium gloves
- bioballs if u ever wanted to use them...which u shouldnt
- and an automatic timer and surge protector for the lights to turn off and on automatically.

I will be sad to see this go. I have taken my time stocking it so there is still room for you to add livestock and make it your own. Pictures arent great...didnt have time to clean it up first.

It didn't say anything about a test kit, so make sure you get a good one and test once a week.I would perform partial water changes more than once a month, probably weekly. It looks cool though.

That sounds high to me, search Craigslist for better deals. I paid 300 bucks for a 65 gallon with a sump, skimmer, stand and canopy. It had a ton of live rock in it. There are good deals everywhere, there is a 72 gallon bowfront on there right now for 225.

I love when people break down everything so that its a huge list, it makes it seem like so much more stuff.
