Build Thread Introduction:

Well, I had not planned to do this build thread yet but a friend, @ESABOE, convinced me to do it and here we are! A buddy gave me this tank 7 months ago, a Biocube 32. I kept all the original Coralife equipment; however, I upgraded the light to an AI Prime 16, the powerhead to an AI Nero 3 to increase flow, and an ATO

Here is a picture of the tank on the day I brought it home on 9/10/23.

I have quite a few updates and photos to share; so stay tuned!

What’s the white block in the back right upper corner?

Is that just the scraper or something else?
It is a scraper, but I updated that one for a nano flipper float!

Just my recommendation - don't keep it in the tank when not in use. You heard my story, right?

I didn't know, I've been reading your tank thread but I haven't gotten to that part yet.

Which thread? I've got 4. :beaming-face-with-smiling-eyes: Actually maybe 6 or 7...

The current 2 threads don't have that issue. In my old 75 I had a nasty GHA outbreak. I didn't d 2 doses of Flux and left ta of water changes. Finally found out the magnet was rusting, removed it and the GHA went away almost overnight.
