Starting a nanocube

I'm planning on moving two clowns and an anemone from an overstocked 25 gallon tank to a new nanocube. Any suggestions?

The only things I was planning on moving over were the clowns and anemone. Would it be good to use some of my existing water? Do I need to upgrade the basic nanocube at all? What additions? How long should I cycle the cube?


Thanks for any help!

Cycle the cube until it is done cycling and there is no more ammonia and nitrite. How many gallons is a nano cube? Are you sure that 2 clowns and an anemone won't be overstocking the nanocube? Using existing water and substrate could shorten the cycling time.

A nano cube is only 12 gallons. That seems tiny for 2 clowns, IMO.

The JBJ Nano-Cube does not have sufficient lighting for an anemone. Standard equipment is a 24 watt 50/50 bulb. Unless you were planning to mod the light hood with at least two 32 watt PC bulbs. I haven't modded my canopy due to the amount of work, not always clean look & need for external ballast placement.

ive actually seen a nano hold two small rose bulbs and a small clown along with some other coral at a lfs, and it has been running for a pretty long time with no problems. i know that clowns, once hosting something, rarely ever leave it, even in the wild they never stray far from their home. as long as the fish are small, and water quality is check and kept up every day, i think it should be ok.

What's the procedure for modifying the JBJ hood for 2 32 watt pc bulbs?

Where can I find specifics?
