Easily shrooms and zoas, frogspawn towards the top of the tank. I'd avoid the nem in a 24 though. If successful they grow fast and will run the tank lol.

And yep, I paid 50 dollars more for my 24 JBJ with stand than my plain old 14g biocube. Upgrade with some LED strips to add some more light and thats about it. Adds point source illumination, meaning glitter lines

I like the price. 5 gallons below what I was aiming for- not bad. Might be a while until I actually get one. Thanks though guys. Is there really any difference, bio cube vs. JBJ cube?

Besides brand name not really, I think the intake/output on the filters are on opposite sides

Not much difference. The nanocube has a larger in tank sump though, which is helpful. Also, having had both a 14g bio and 24g jbj, I think the JBJ looks sleeker and of higher quality.

And dream is right. Also, biocube has intakes at low water levels and high water levels, and has slots for filter pads. I don't like em though because they're rip offs to be honest.

In tank sump? That's right it has a built in filter. If you don't use the filter pads what do you use?

I use a filter sock occasionally, but usually just use fluval activated carbon and the filter sponges that come with the thing. I just don't think those filter pads do much work, and I've noticed my JBJ is noticeably clearer with the fluval carbon and spongy mesh than the bio with the pads.

Nope,Fluval C4 Carbon - 3 pack | Filter Carbon | Filter Media & Accessories | Aquarium - ThatPetPlace.com

I guess its for a canister filter but it gets the job done. Super cheap too

Yea, its just some netting with a bunch of carbon in it. Way more carbon than is in those filter pads.
