Very happy with 16 gallon bio cube, Seems like the corals have a better extension in this tank then the 95 wave, I just have three small domino damsels and the shrimp and the starfish .
I will be moving more of the corals into this tank I just have the tiny skimmer and some phosphate remover, smallest tank I’ve ever owned, I really like the low-tech low maintenance way

You have an ATO on that? Water changes must be a breeze!

Evaporation rate is very slow, I’ve only done a few small 3 gallon water changes every few weeks. I love the low-tech approach

Low tech is a great way to go. Best of luck with the build.

My first tank was a JBJ 24g with 50/50 CFLs. By far the cleanest and healthiest tank I ever had. Sizeable water changes were a breeze to keep the water clean, and it was started with live rock not base rock. Top off got to be a PITA though.

Small simple tanks are easier than people seem to think. It's easy to get caught up in the "need" for dosers, high tech lights, reactors, etc etc.
