I definitely am thinking on buying new now, for pieceof mind and some kind of warranty.
Since I now have all this rock the only other option is to buy a used 125g but I'd still have to invest in alot of other things to go with it.
I'm thinking I'll get a new cube, I guess I can look at it like I only lost $100 on the deal. I also think I may be able to get some of the money back by piecing out the broken cube for parts. I've seen the led
's, fans. ballasts and even the whole lid on eBay so that might be an option too.
Thanks for continuing the great advice guys, you have no idea how much I appreciate it!!
