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

Im new to this (in the researching stage) and was just curious as to what is the difference between a 29 gallon bio cube and a 29 gallon aquarium.

Hi. Welcome to the forum!

The cube is just that, in a cube shape so the swim room is affected. I've had both a regular 29 and this cube and it's a world of difference if you have the two in front of you.

Thank you for such a quick response. Does the cube come with a filtration system already installed? And if so, is it strong enough to handle a fowlr set up?

As I said before I'm new to this and am trying to figure out what kind of set up works for my situation. Thank you for your input.

The biocube comes pretty much plug and play. All you need is a powerhead and maybe a heater depending on where you live and how cold it gets. Currently I only have fish and no coral in mine and it's working out wonderfully. I do 3g a week water changes and added this item for better filtration
BioCube 29 Package Deal - Aquarium Filtration Upgrades & Supplies

I run a carbon substitute so I don't have to change the media every other week but in 4 month intervals or even longer.

if you have any other questions don't hesitate to ask. I went through it all with my cube lol

I can't wait to get a Mandarin for my future 180g. How long did you have pods populating before you got the Mandarin?
