    Hi Folks, I've been slacking on a build thread for my Biocube. Started up back in November while on medical leave from work. Boredom ruled those days so I started my 2nd tank.

    As it stands today.

    Biocube 32
    +/- 25lbs of rock
    2 plates of marine pure under 20 lbs of Caribsea live sand.
    Steve's Led kit
    Sicce 1.5 Return
    In Tank Media Rack w/ Chemipure Blue, Phosgard and Pond Matrix
    Icecap - K2-50 skimmer

    Som epics from the early going and some progression shots up to today.

    Great "fundamentals" in terms of equipment and filter media

    She's right at or a hair larger then 2". I say she as it's clearly the more dominant of the two clowns and has been since day one though they're fairly similar size wise. Bought as a baby from Cultivated Reef in November. She'll eat from my fingers but chases the Midnight relentlessly (No Harm) The Midnight just happens to be my gals baby.

    I hadnt really considered a cost as I had just recently started thinking about the eviction. Nothing crazy though shipping will probably be the bigger number. Let me chew on it for a bit and get back at ya.

    Thanks Mike, I'm still a rook but picked up a lot between my 1st tank and starting this one. This one really made me think about good ways to handle filtration in the limited space.

    Thank You! I like how it turned out too. This was the 2nd tank i scaped and it came out much better than the 1st. I really havent touched it since startup.
    Im thinking anout a winter build as well. Have a 40B just staring at me begging for water but needs a stand.

    Awesome! I told for one reason or another Acans have been my nemesis! My last try had a hammer unlgue itself and fall on it. Woke up to a legit skeleton it went so fast.

    Couple of quick pics using the demo aquarium camera app. Very promising i think. My tanks very blue right now and i was able to get these shots.
