I had heard that they were horrible from everywhere. BUT not one to beleive everything she reads I got one. Guess what? Totally inadequate and twitchy. Took forever to dial it in and then it only produced a slight skim. I sold it on CL for the same amount I paid for it. But since you have it already I would try it out and see if you get better results.

So just now I was thinking maybe to add some more diversity to the tank I could do this:
1 occelaris clown
1 yellow watchman goby
1 royal gramma
1 six line wrasse
1 kauderns cardinal

What do you think? Is that even possible?

I think with that stock list you will be full. I have 6 small fish in my cube and consider myself overstocked. lol

But the list looks good, I don't see any issues with them as far as aggressiveness.

I lobe the look of that tank, I've always liked biocubes. The stock will be a lot for the filter in the tank to handle.. Just be careful.

Yeah I'm probably going to scratch the six line. I'll be stuffing the fist and second chamber of the sump with live rock rubble so filtration should be pretty powerful

So I just got back from the lfs. I asked if I could do 30lbs of dry rock in the dt and some live rock rubble In the middle chamber. He said that dry Rock causes algae problems for the first 2 months. Is that true? Also, I notices that a lot of light from the 1000k floods into the sump area... Is that enough light to grow mangroves of chaeto?
Thanks

no, dry rock should have no issue. certain types of rocks can lead to issues because of what leaks out of them, but typically not a problem.

did you notice its a seasonal item and out of stock?

Saltwater Aquarium Fiji Dry Live Rock / Eco Rox | Bulk Reef Supply - English
decent prices there, plus people set up group buys through them and you get better deals.
