    Hi All, I have been loving this forum and lurking for a long time. I finally figured it would be time to share my experiences with my upgrade to a new tank. Here is a pic of my Biocube 29 that I have been running since 2008. Wow! 12 years is a great run! The main reason I got the Biocube at...

    Two Year 29 Gallon Biocube HQI Transformation

    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. Next I decided to test the waters with a cheap damsel before I spent all of my hard earned money on fish, and as you can tell I dealt with my first round...

    New to Saltwater Tanks - Starting 29g Biocube Reef Tank

    Hi All! I am new to saltwater tanks and have purchased a used 29g Coralife Biocube. My plan is to start a reef tank with some suitable fish and softy/LPS corals. After a month or so of research on forums like R2R (thanks for the help already!), I decided to start a thread on the setup and...

    Need help on custom surface draw "box"

    My goal is to use this 24 gallon Aquapod (similar to a biocube) without the back separator. The previous owner removed it and honestly I want the real estate. In its place I tried already to insert upright a closed off the bottom PVC pipe with slits cut into it similar to any draw box. The pipe...

    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. I have seen some close substitutes, but I’m not really sure what would work best for my tank. I’m not really obsessed with adding more water volume, but I...

    The not so exciting biocube 29 rescue

    I have seen some pretty amazing build threads on the forums. Being a new reefer (started my first tank in early April 2018) I didn't figure I would bring anything interesting to the mix with my humble biocube. I never really introduced myself either. My name is Ryan. I was born in Kansas...

    Biocube 29 AI Prime HD

    Hi everyone, Was looking for the best settings for an AI prime HD on a 29 gallon biocube? These are the settings I have now, would this be too low for porites, zoas, and anemones? Please give me suggestions, thanks.

    Biocube 29 AI Prime

    Hi everyone, I have an AI prime with the flexible mount. Was just wondering if any of you have mounted this on a biocube? the black rim on the cube makes it impossible to use this for me, any suggestions on how to do this? possibly cut the section of the rim off? also how long is the wire on...

    Blenny Question

    Hi everybody, I have a Tailspot blenny in my 29gal biocube with a Clarkii CF, Lemon peel Angel, and a newly added Flame Hawkfish. Before I added the hawkfish, everyone in the tank was fine and very visible. Ever since the addition of the hawkfish, I have not seen the blenny out in the open and...

    Tailspot blenny and firefish biocube 29

    Hello! I have a biocube 29 with 2 clowns, 1 green chromis and a firefish. Firefish was added just over a month ago and has his cave well established. He is doing great. Eating and coming out from time to time. I would like to add a blenny. From what I have read I feel the tailspot would...

    Clownfish picking on chromis

    Hello, tried searching for discussion about this but was unable to find much. I recently introduced a blue green chromis into my biocube 29. I have a firefish, perc and ocellaris as well in the tank. Everything was great for the first few weeks, but the past 2-3 weeks our chromis has been...

    Biocube 29 build

    Last October my wife and I bought a coralife biocube 29 from a coworker who has been in the hobby for over 10 years. He had actually bought the set up for himself while he was trying to convince me to buy it for my kids. My son is allergic to cats and dogs but loves animals. So my co worker...

    Has anyone made a mesh top for a BioCube HQI?

    I’ve cut & customized a lot on my BioCube 29 HQI over the years, but I’d really like to ditch the plate glass top and put in a mesh screen. Given the fact that only two of the corners are square, it’s probably going to have to be a custom top, but if someone has already gone through the process...

    New tank: start with controller or components?

    Hello! I’m just getting started in SW, though I’ve had FW for years. I’ve got a BC29 and am looking ahead to see if it’s worth getting a controller like reefkeeper or the like now, or if I should get the various timers, probes, etc. separate add ons and upgrade later. What have other members...

    My Biocube 29

    Looking through at the Biocubes you all have makes me feel like mine is inadequate haha, but something to strive for I guess. I changed out bioballs in the sump for new ones (I know there are better options, but thought with a few other mods it would be ok). I removed the cartridge filters and...

    Tank takeover?

    What is this stuff and how do I get rid of it? Will this kill my corals? I have RODI water and have been doing water changes. I am so worried it will take over and kill everything.

    Film/green hair algae and maybe bacteria (pics included)

    I've had this modified bio cube 29 running for about a year now and have gone through various algae battles. For the last few months however I've had this very slow, slimy, green and brown growth on my rocks. It's getting so bad that it's clogging up the filter floss on my overflow in a few...
