New Setup


Recommended Posts

I am picking up the following this weekend:


29gallon biocube

biocube stand

Original hood w/lights - I never used this so like new

Sunpod 150watt light fixture w/LED moonlights and Phoenix 14kbulb

I turned the middle chamber into a refugium so you will get the 13watt fuge light w/timer and cheato

Octopus BH-1000 hang on back protein skimmer (bought last year for $160)

Koralia #1 powerhead

I upgraded the factory return pump to a rio that comes with a hydor flo

Ebo-Jager heater


(KILLER deal, this is just the equipment that comes with it.)


Now, I can keep pretty much anything with this light, right? Do I need actinics? How would I supplement them if I do need them?


I'm really clueless about lights...

I have that light over my 29g biocube and you can keep anything you want under it. You do not need actinics if you do not want them.

Do most people add them? They are what really make the color pop right?


If I were to add them, would I just get another fixture? I have access to a 20" coralife fixture, but feel that would be overkill, lol

I don't think its necessary with a good MH bulb. The phoenix, IME, gives great color. I don't run any actinics.

Ok sounds good! Man, I am so excited for this tank! I got everything for only $325. And like I said, I only have the equipment listed!


Thanks for the advice!
