    Build Thread The Ultimate BioCube Build

    Below is the story of how this build evolved into my dream tank and became the ultimate BioCube build. I’ve always been attracted to nano’s. Historically, I have moved every 2-5 years so the thought of moving a large setup discouraged me from ever going big. I purchased the BioCube 29 gallon...

    Hi all, I have an Innovative Marine SR-60 and really love it. It’s my display tank. I have the stock lid and it worked for a while. The issue is the stock lid leaves a decent gab around the rim. I lost two gobies because they jumped out! Squeezed right through the gap. A yasha and a Dracula...
