nano cube

would this nano cube have good enough lighting for most types of coral, or would it have enough for some good starter corals?

Well .... the lighting seems a little bit low, you may be able to get away with some shrooms and Zoas but definitely not any thing more!

If I were you I would check into the JBJ Nano or even the new Current Aquapod. Both of which have more lighting. I have the 12gal JBJ Deluxe and love it! I keep zoas, Candy canes, blastos and a red open brain that is growing by the day!! I think my total watts are something around 48 and the Aquapod is atround 56 (I think)!

Lando also keeps the JBJ nano and will attest to it's capabilities! Whatever you do stay away from the 24gallon JBJ as I've read numerous posts about them cracking. JBJ used the same glass thickness for all models and of course you have much more water pressure in a 24 gallon than a 12 or 6 gallon!

God grant me the serenity to accept the thing's I can not change, the courage to change the thing's I can and the wisdom to know the difference!

I agree with Jermz. The lighting seems a bit low. For better results I suggest the JBJ 12gal NanoCube Deluxe. Better lighting is a key.
Some people are like slinkies...they serve no real purpose yet can still bring a smile to your face when you push them down the stairs!:p
Have a great day! Brian
