Deff gonna enjoy it. I love my biocube 29 and 14. Just only so much I can do with it. Wife wants to do a movie night so I won't be able to start cleaning the sand till the morn. Still haven't decided what to do with the refugium just due to the overall size of it. The fuge is the whole base and bigger than the tank. The plan is to still have the tank starting to cycle this weekend. We gotta make a trip to get 2 more clowns on Sunday due to ours deciding to jump into the pump area of our biocube while we was on our honeymoon. Unfortunately they didn't make it

I have started washing the sand and putting in the tank. I have roughly a 3 inch sand bed right now. Still have roughly 50 pounds to prince and put in. After that I will move on to adding live rock and water. Raise the salinity up and hopefully start cycling this evening. Still undecided on what I'm going to do with the fuge. The base is just so huge. I may just set up a spare tank behind as one we will see. Any sugesstions on that? The base has 6 sections in the bottom with filler floss on trays. The guy I ot the tank from was just running a canister filter.

I have a mix of many different saltwater fish amongst my tanks, but I love my Tangs most of all.

Tank is starting to clear up now. Can kind of see the live rock. Will post more when the sand settles. Slowly adding salt in to make sure its disolves good. Stocking may change, wife decided she wants a reef tank so we will see how we go when the tank cycles.

Starting to clear up. Salinity is just about where it needs to be.
