That's what I've heard. I removed the carbon filter and sup. with a bag of purigen. Seems to work better for me now. I'll probably wait for In Tank to make a setup specifically for this model.

What are the specs on the new lighting? When I spoke with the Oceanic rep last they said they were upgrading a hood with led and changing the fans (which are loud if not cleaned a lot!).

Looks great!

I have had my BC29 for a couple years and just moved. I am cycling now and waiting on my intank filtration upgrade and fuge light to show up tomorrow or the next day!

Fluorescent Lamps 10,000K and Actinic
5 Lunar Blue LEDs
the fans can be a little loud but doesn't bother me at all. I don't think there's much difference other than the clear back to attach lighting for fuge on the rear. In Tank says their coming with a media rack for the coralife version so I guess I'll just wait a little longer.
