Yes it is, bio cubes are really made for saltwater setups. It's a great beginner size but bigger is always better. :Welcome: to AA!

Okay just making sure I got the right tank...I set it up on February 15 and I'm pretty sure it's going through the cycle and I have brown algae all over my live rock and glass...could I add snails and crabs and shrimp right now or should I wait till the tank is completely done with the cycle?

I always started mine off the bat at every 2 weeks, some may say different but I never had any issue with it. it will help with that algae also so you can clean it up.. are you using ro or ro/di water?

ok its prob ro water..i would make sure it is when you do your next change. it may be worth while and save you some money to purchase your own ro/di unit. they are not that expensive and I am funny about buying water. if you have your own unit you know when the filters are changed and you always have the water... and im assuming your using reg tap water to top off?
