Cali-girl Posted October 22, 2007 Share Posted October 22, 2007 This is the story of a little Biocube14 that grew to a beautiful 29g mixed reef....... i finally did it! I went down to the store yesterday afternoon and got myself a Biocube 14. I'm soo excited. I've been reading forum after forum after forum and researching since probably early spring. I got about 10lbs of live rock consisting of kailini, figi, and tonga - more will be coming soon, put in about 15lbs of Aragonite sand. Since everything was live already, i'm assuming that the cycle won't be that big, but i plan on letting it do it's thing for at least a few weeks. I just have the actinics on for about 12 hours a day. As of right now, I have everything stock. I plan on taking out the bioballs and adding rock rubble in the 2nd chamber, putting the heater in the 1st, and maybe doing cheato on that top tray or just on top of the rock. i know that some of you guys use chemipure, so i'm looking into that too instead of the carbon filter. I want to upgrade the pump to add more flow. I'm noticing that the skimming isn't that great, until i move the carbon filter out of the way. It ends up blocking and reducing the incoming flow of water. That's my plan so far!! I posted all this in the beginner's forum, but i figured i should do it here as well, then i can update and post pics as i go along! You guys are a wealth of information and i welcome any comments or suggestions! Link to comment
