I know you have several tanks, so it might be hard for you to estimate, but if you can...how much monthly energy costs do you think will be associated with having the cube plugged in and running along with the pump and heater and lights? Does everything run 24/7?

I only run my lights on the cube for maybe 8 hours day and I start with the blues then an hour later or more I add the whites.

I have 7 tanks up and running right now and my bill has gone up but not really bad. Maybe $20 a month more?

Well I got lucky with a damsel that's getting along with my clown, goby and a firefish but it is 1 out of a dozen.. I wouldn't recommend one unless you see a tank full of damsels and see which one is the calmest!! And maybe u will have some luck if your really want one!!

I just got home and have my 29g biocube. Trying to assemble it. Does the green water tube connect to tge air pump or just rest in-between it and the sponge?

It connects the pump and the output in the tank. I have a new 14 gallon one.

Ok so the top part of the green tube with the black piece attached connects to the back piece on the top of the tank and the bottom end of the green tube connects to the stock pump correct?

On mine the black piece fits into the top of the pump, then the green hose to that with the other end of the green hose to the output.
