Not sure if there's a large difference in price difference between the BC 14 and Nuvo 16, but it's about $300 between my choice.
You're right, there's not hardly anything bad written about Nuvo aside from the original Silicone issue. But, there's really not a ton of threads or reviews on the product since it's newer.
The price difference between my two options is $100. That being said, I can't find a BC 14 -anywhere- all of a sudden. I spoke to a friend who apparently advised me that they have stopped production because they are coming out with a new BC within the next few months. Therefore, my dilemma is simply do I jump on the Nuvo whose design I love and which fits my space perfectly, or do I wait another few months (hopefully) to see what the new BC looks like? Atm I'm leaning toward the Nuvo. And you're right, there is hardly any bad reviews, but that also may be because the product is simply so new.
Ok i almost bought one heres the deal wait for the new 20k light. For the money u can setup a way bigger tank when i walked to the lfs i was looking at nuvo then walked around the coner and saw a used 90 gallon for the same price as the nuvo 16 and if you go nuvo get the 38 with 20k light
I'm not sure I read your post correctly, but it sounds like you're saying they'll be coming out with a 20k version? As far as getting a bigger tank, I don't doubt I could for the price. However, I want to stick with an all-in-one tank for simplicity's sake while I learn. I also want a smaller sized tank for that exact same reason, as well as the simple fact that I am limited on space. The BC 14 was the largest tank I could fit of the 'cubes', and the Nuvo 16 is the absolute largest I can fit given its dimensions. My 150gal cichlid tank doesn't leave me much room for anything larger
Felt with Nuevo. Crap. I'd get the jbj coming out in 2-3 weeks. Just take this time to research a,d research. Also save money for equipment. I already saving for the 30g
You say you've dealt with the Nuvo and it is crap. Can you elaborate on what about the product gave you that poor impression of it? I'd be interested to hear it
As far as the new JBJs, they looking interesting; however, with only those three sizes (5, 8, 30), I'm afraid none of them fit my needs. Eight is too small, and thirty is too large.
Like you Rmbxr9, I'm on the fence about jumping in on a new
tank -and- spending more for it. The $100 difference in price between what I wanted (BC 14) and the Nuvo isn't too
distracting, because my gf is putting up almost all the money as my anniversary gift. But of course, I don't want to waste money on a poor product. The design of the Nuvo has me sold aesthetically for sure, but functionality is naturally important. I even asked my LFS who has both the 8gal and the 30gal up and running for the last 2 months if they've run into any problems, and they don't have a single complaint other than removing the glass top on the 30gal because of heat issues.
