Is the 28 gallon Nano cube HQI aquarium any good? @ 499.99


Recommended Posts

IMO, the Aquapod 24 gallon, 150W HQI Metal Halide System is a better deal.




But the NanoCube 28HQI has it's fans also.

its nice but the nano cube includes a tank stand and protein slimmer.

Hope they've increased the quality of the stands they build because I'd never put a tank on the ones they used to sell with the NanoCube 24.


Look at this thread:






Sounds like people go with a different skimmer than what comes with it.

I purchased a JBJ28 at $699 CAD and that is a wicked price, I would definitely recommend it especially since it comes with the stand.


The stand is not of very good quality, but it is just asthetic problems (bad paintjob on the wood). I have no worries about its ability to hold up my tank for a couple years, however.

$500 is pretty standard for the tank and stand. several places offer the package deal now.


the stand is not super wonderful IMO. i added some bracing to the inside and then bolted it to the wall with 1/4" steel brackets for lateral support incase of quakes or bumps.

JBJ 28 stand is fine.

There is the possibility of heat issues so you may have to purchase a chiller.

I have JBJ 28 HQI but if purchasing again I would consider the aquapod too.

Be careful with heat issues with this tank due to the metal halide....


ive seen someone use the feet for lights to lift the hood 4". i was considering that if heat is an issue
