Second, there are two switches at the top of the aquarium, one turns on the blue lighting and the other turns on the regular tank lighting, when i turn on the regular lights a fan turns on with the lighting. What is the fans function? Is it just to keep the lighting cooled off? As you can tell, I am confused. The tank came complete, brand new, plastics still on but it had no instruction manual and I have looked online to no luck for the answers to these questions. Any help is greatly appreciated. thank you. Bekah413
Wow - did you get a good deal for no instructions? Lol
I will bet you can find the manual SOMEWHERE online. Google!
Lastly, if you wish to keep tropical fish you will need a heater unless your home stays at least 76-80 all year
Idk anything else about the biocube except that I'm jealous and want one toooooo! Sorry! Hehe.
P.S. if you are going to use it for tropical fish don't forget to post other questions under the freshwater section! Good luck to you!
