Carey's Bio Cube Build
 
Yep, I went and got tank number 7. LOL

It is in perfect condition but is missing the lights, paid $100 bucks. :-D

My plans for this one are quite simple. I want designer clowns of some type, a blenny and a mandarin goby. I have to wait til my 10g is open so I can use that for breeding pods. But I can always get the goby last anyways.

Not sure how this build will progress as I am gonna take this one slow I think. First step, order the lights! Second step, find a stand for it!

Thanks for reading!

its a 29. I have a 29g sw but I was using 2 koralia 750's in there lol. The one for the bio cube is 250gph. I don't want sand blowing all over though.

How far are you into your nano build?

I have a nano koralia in my 29G on the right side pointing to the front left to intersect the pump output for water movement. I don't know if I'd want to add anymore movement than it already has. I just ordered a nova extreme 4 (24W) bulb fixture for mine to replace the original top. It looks like one of the compact ballast failed, and I figured I'd replace the whole top instead of messing with it.

Super so the one jet should be enough then. Thanks a bunch!

The setup came with bioballs, I want to toss them don't I? Is LR an option in it's place? I've never really looked at a bio cube before today so I am a bit clueless. lol
