Well I came home with two purple firefish earlier!! They're pretty uncommon around me, and normally really expensive. So when I saw some for $25 I had to have them! One thing I've noticed with this tank is it's really hard to take pictures haha

Add slowly after all the waiting it's easy to hurry things at this point.

Oh I will, I probably won't add any more fish for about a month.. I'm just gonna work on "filling the tank out" coral wise for now. I should be able to keep LPS with this stock light, huh?

Something to be aware of with biocubes is that fish can still jump out. They can get over the back wall of the display and into the filtration, if you still have the strainer tray they will not survive long. I rigged a wall with a piece of old undergravel filter mesh but I believe you can buy something, I think it's called a fish saver.

Hmmm, I'll look at it when I get home, I don't remember seeing a gap.. Are you talking about a gap between the rim and the hood?

There is no way a fish can get out, I just looked hard too. The hood completely seals the display in, completely.

And this is a Nano Cube, not a BioCube, I think that's what's making the difference.
