Which is better?

I'm about to start my pico reef and I have $100 for the tank. I am between the aqueon evolve 8 (brand new) for $89, a used 8 gallon biocube for $85, or a used biocube 14 for $100. Which would you get? Or if not these, what?

I would go with the new aqueon. Less chance of leak problems later. Aqueon is an exceptional tank. Very good quality!!

If your inexperienced in salt water I would recommend at least a 30 gallon. A 50 gallon would be better as a first venture into the saltine side. In a small system bad things happen faster. IMO bigger is better!
Not one shred of evidence supports the notion that life is serious.
