CUC question

Is this package two much as far as what it contains and the quantity? It's for a BioCube 29.

I'm a total newbie to SW but that seems like an awful lot of bio load to put in a 29g tank. Is this a new tank or one that has been stable for a long time and you are just changing the stock?

You don't need a big clean up crew tbh you barley need one at all as it increases your bio load! As long as all your foods eaten you can get away with whatever you like if I were you and you wanted one build up slowly anyway

Way way over kill. I find most sites go over board.


You can cut that in half and it would still be over kill IMO.


I have a bio cube 29 and have 5 nassarius, 1 turbo, 3 blue legged hermits and 1 red legged. I have 2 cleaner shrimp, 1 blood shrimp and 2 peppermint shrimp along with my harliquen and pistol shrimp.

Nobody "needs" a clean up crew in all honesty. Water changes, not over feeding and just a well organized maintenance schedule is all you need.
