So I just closed on a refi of my house and I have a little extra money from the closing. I am trying to decide if I should go with a nano-cube or a bigger tank. there are advantages to both:
*The nano-cube comes with everything it needs.... pumps, power head, 8 WPG
50/50 lighting (getting the 12G Deluxe), LED
*It is pretty much just an add your LS
and a quick cycle then you are good to go.
*I can easily get RO
water for the entire thing.
*Can get the LS
immediately and be up and running.
*VERY cost effective
*Harder to maintain water parameters.
*Am very limited in the type and number of fish and corals I can put in it.
*Much easier to maintain water parameters.
*Much more versitility to put more number and varity of fish,corals, and invert in it.
*Will fit the size of the wall and room more appropriately.
*Will have to buy everything seperately (only real con is the price thing... it is a pro that I will be able to pick and choose what I want s far as the equipment goes).
*Will have to check my tap water and hope that it is okay for water for the tank, otherwise will have to get an RODI
system for the house.
*Will have to wait to get all equipment 1 piece at a time (didn't get THAT much money from the closing).
*Will be several months before I am up and cycleing the tank.
SOOOO what do you all think? Votes and comment would be appreciated.
