Can you show a good pic of the lights. It sure looks interesting.

Attachment 225608i don't have picture of lighting but is a 14 gal and it's cheap lol is it worth messin with??

deckaman225 03-02-2014 11:42 PM

They said it came with salt mix and bio balls and stuff so it has the capability but don't know if it's worth it

deckaman225 03-02-2014 11:48 PM

The only real difference I see is the overflow is on the opposite Side than a biocube!!

It looks like the newer biocubes. If it holds water then its a valid tank, well, depending on the price. Wont be able to keep much as far as fish but its a good tank.

deckaman225 03-03-2014 12:06 AM

It's 20 bucks it looks like a decent tank to me

carey 03-03-2014 12:07 AM

If it were me, and the tank holds water then I would get it. Could always get one or two very small fish (not clowns) and add a bunch of inverts and some low light corals,

deckaman225 03-03-2014 12:08 AM

Wat kind of fish could u put in this??

carey 03-03-2014 12:11 AM

Hmm...if it were me i would put a small goby and pistol shrimp pair in there and maybe a clown goby. :-) The goby/shrimp pair are very cool to watch too. They live together in the same little burrow of sand and the fish will bring food to the shrimp. Its super neat.

deckaman225 03-03-2014 12:12 AM

Ok awesome thanks for the advice it's a cheap way for me to get started thx so much!!!

carey 03-03-2014 12:13 AM

Youre very welcome. Good luck

deckaman225 03-03-2014 12:13 AM

So how much live rock and dry rock should I put in here??

deckaman225 03-03-2014 12:15 AM

I was wondering since live rock is so expensive wat is a good ratio for live to dry so it will be cheaper

carey 03-03-2014 12:16 AM

I';d say about 1 to 1.5 lbs of rock total. So if you add 10 lbs I would put in 3 lbs of live and base for the other 7lbs. Put in 20lbs and then add 6lbs of live, 14 of base you get the idea.

bribo12 03-03-2014 12:17 AM

All dry and then a small pice of live rock to seed the tank

deckaman225 03-03-2014 12:20 AM

Ok thx I'm gonna get it and see wat I can do

deckaman225 03-03-2014 10:47 AM

I've been looking at the gobies I think I want the yellow watchmen a male and a pistol shrimp for my little nano and I don't know what else is there anything else that can go with them besides gobies?? And do most soft corals only need lower levels of light?
