    Hey guys, I have a 32 gallon Biocube, I have a Tunze 9001 skimmer in the tank, but I'm honestly not crazy about it. I am looking at purchasing a aquamaxx HOB-1, but was wondering if I can run this in chamber 2 with my InTank Media Basket, or if I can run the protein skimmer in chamber 1. Any...

    Build Thread Biocube 32 Rebuild

    What's up everyone! I've been lurking around the forums for a few years now and held off on starting a build thread because I felt like I didn't have much to contribute since I'm new to the hobby. I now realize that should've been the biggest reason to start one sooner as it would've saved me a...

    Light schedule

    Hello, I have a biocube 32g and I have not noticed very much growth in my corals and have heard/read it could be because of my light schedule. My current light schedule is for the pink (sun rise) lights to come on at 9:30am-10:00am. My whites come on at 10:00am and are on until 5:00pm. My sunset...

    I’ve seen substantial growth of my birds nest but absolutely nothing else. I don’t know if it’s normal but I’ve had 2 hammers, a frogspawn and a torch for about 4-5 months now and I do see new baby tentacles weekly but never any heads splitting. Does anyone else have this issue with Biocube...

    In stand skimmer?

    I was wondering if anyone has any experience with running a skimmer in the stand of a Biocube? I know the advantage of Biocube is that it’s AIO, but I don’t like the coralife skimmer I got with the tank. While it does work, it’s noisy (I don’t mind noise as long as it’s steady like a fan) and it...

    AI Nero 3 or Nero 5 for 32G biocube

    Hello guys I was recently thinking about adding a Nero 3 or 5 to my biocube it’s a Euphyllia dominant tank. I want to create a more random flow.

    AIO Build RFG on a biocube 32 led

    Anyone know what the output nozel size is for this? And if a random flow generator is worth it? I imagine it’ll cut down on the gph through my return and it’s the stock pump. Thanks.
