My Biocube 14!

Rev: I think I'll try to go for the soap dish chaeto method. Think that will solve the problem?

 

Should be fine -- but what do you have in chamber 2?

LR rubble and a pura pad on top... does enough light reach there so I don't need another light? If so I'll put it back there- I have the 3.24 mod.. I can't add another light, as I am fighting temp problems as it is. Thanks!

Nah. You'd definitely need a light back there. Soap dish is probably your best bet.

That really nice piece of liverock doesn't look like the fiji I have seen. It is probably from some other South Pacific Island around there, and the LFS just sold it as Fiji. It looks way nicer! anyways live your biocube, keep up the good work.

Hey Buddy, overdue for an update!! Nice Discus BTW. Are you still having temp issues ? Did you get any chaeto yet ? If not shoot me a PM with address and I will send you some. Did you get to go out for some CUC members this weekend?

Ok, Pic- less update (will post pics when everyone is out in my tank). I went to Ocean Gallery II 1/2 an hour ago, and purchased: 2 cerith snails, 2 turbo snails, a scarlet hermit, and got 3 starfish (freebies). The scarlet started vacuuming the substrate as soon as he hit the sand, and the snails got to work on the GHA.

QN: pics today or tomorrow!

Amsr: I got turbos, you can tell me if they are mehicano from the pics :happy:

Needreefunds: Thanks for the compliment, yes, temp issues, but they are getting under control :D I will be getting a fan for the hood later this week. Once I get a soap dish, I will be sure to PM you for some cheato! Thanks, I appreciate it!

Pics are coming! :D
