Just got a cube dont know what kind HELP!!!

Hey everyone I just got a cube off craigslist the guy said it was a 14g nano/bio cube. Im new to saltwater so i dont know the difference so I want to ask YOU the professionals. Here we go the tank measures 16.5''x14''x15'', 4 filter compartments with different filtration media in 3 of them. Sub pump is a SP-160 120v, Dual water flow heads, 100w stealth heater. The lights in it are FT27w dual daylight FT27w dual actinic and 2 blue leds. I attached some pics to help out. Please help me figure out what I just bought, I paid $150 for everything. Was that a good deal? I can post more pics if needed. Thanks alot guys and gals...

Looks like a good deal. I have three tanks and I've been trolling craigslist for more and a biocube is on my list. Looks like yours is in pretty good condition too. What are your plans for it?

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

I just started my first sw tank too. I've got a 29gal with 48lbs live rock, an anenome, a zooanthid and a hammer coral. I'm so proud of my self.

Research is the key. thats why i dont have my fish yet. But I do know what I want now.

You doing the fishless cycling I assume? Theres some excellent articles on here about it

Did it dry out? The sand I believe should go. But if the rock was submerged from an operating tank it will be good to use.

Try looking on the tank for some branding/labels, it's not a biocube (I know, I own one ) and it doesnt look like a nanocube, so it is probably an aquapod.

but definitely take it slow, read the saltwater sticky on fishless cycling.

and a piece of advice that goes around frequently for SW beginners: Nothing good ever happens in SW fast

Sand should definitely go. Buy some new dry aragonite sand, live is a waste of money. The rock is usable but you should have been keeping it submerged in saltwater. If you didn't there will be some die off on the rock and the cycle might be longer. Good luck and keep us posted with lots of pics
