I just got back into the hobby after a ten year break. I had a 120 mixed reef and also a 32 BioCube. I just started a WaterBox 25 Peninsula about two weeks ago. They both have pluses and minuse. the BioCube has a matching stand the WaterBox I have doesn’t. It just happens to fix perfectly on a room devider we have.Hi All,
I am planning to get a new saltwater aquarium. Can you please suggest which is better ? BioCube 32 Gallon or Peninsula AIO 20 Gallon.
Do you mind sharing a picture of this? I'm considering buying the biocube 32 soon after all my saltwater tank research. What things do you have to buy day 1? OR basically, what does the biocube not have that I'll need immediately. Hopefully I'm asking the right question.Chamber 1: heater and skimmer
Chamber 2:filter floss, media and Refug
Chamber 3:UV, ATO, and Pump
hopes this helps, this is my setup on the Biocube 32

Awesome! I'm checking it out now. There's so much to learn. I know this is wishful thinking, but I hoped the tank would have everything I needed. I know.....I sound crazy. Lol!Sure take a look at my build thread. Click the banner next to my name.

Many alterations will have to made in order to upgrade it. Getting a skimmer in it is a struggle, you will inevitably remove the lid to upgrade the light and add other mechanical filtertration. You have to make alterations to add a media basket. It has low resolution glass which is bowed so your pictures don't look good. I can go on and on, I have 4 tanks and one is biocube which I have had running for a long time and I can't wait to get rid of it. You can easily get a Innovative marine AIO tank and have a much more painless experience. People who have a biocubes will try to defend it but I really wish someone told me this before I bought my first tank so I didn't get it.Can you please tell why, so it will be helpful as we are in initial stage and we can look for alternatives.
