    AIO Build stalkem's Oceanic Biocube 29 HQI (first SW tank)

    I guess I started my "build thread" in the Meet & Greet section. Feel free to visit, Newby with a Nano Reef! And I liked @Blopple's build format, so borrowing that... thanks! Growing up, I had several freshwater tanks. Probably wasn't great at it, but had fun with it. Recently, a friend's mom...

    AIO Build My second BioCube

    Weird sized biocube 29 plumbing?

    So I picked up one of these random flow generators from Vivid Creative Aquatics, and the slip fit adapter is just a bit too small for my outlet. Taking the existing plumbing there I'm measuring about 20.9 - 21 mm (13/16 in ) in diameter on the inner slip fit that came installed with the tank...

    Hi everyone! Its getting to that very short time of year where I need to figure out a good heater for my 29 gal BioCube (I say this because I live in Florida, so not much need for one outside of maybe 3 months out of the year so I've been putting off getting one). I'm also in the market for an...

    I got a new-to-me BioCube 29 with no lights. I inherited live sand, live rock, the tank, and the stand. After putting it in the spot of the 16 (after moving that tank catty corner) I put the Live Rock in, some new Special Grade aragonite and the water that was in the buckets with the LR. I...

    So I’ve been running my new biocube for about two months. My wife and I took PAINS to make sure the stand was level. Well I get the tank on and my four foot level (which by the way is WAY too long to go on top of the tank without hanging over) is showing that the tank is dipping to one corner by...

    Like any good tank it started with a old fashion cycle but used pure ammonia from the dollar store since I was a high school kid on a budget.

    Chaeto reactor and light recommendations?

    I have seen a few pre-built options through Marine Depot, but the reactors and lights are out of stock with no guarantee they will return.
