im curious what others have in their 12g cubes, ie: fish, corals, amount of rock/sand... and various other things, this is a thread so others can compare their setups.

 

as for me i have just setup my 12g DX, i have about 20 lbs LR and 10 lbs LS. i have the stock lighting, plus a fuge light and a moonlight. i replaced the stock pump with a minijet 606 and added a rio 90 to the first chamber which helps disrupt the surface water. i have 7 hermits, 5 something or other snails (i really dont know what they are, but they dont do the job) 3 turbo snails. i have a few shrooms and one zoo frag... thats it for now, i will add much more later.

I just started my 12g JBJ Nano-Cube DX w/moon lights about a week ago, I have 11.5 lbs of Live Rock, and 10 lbs of black sand (Non-living, but will be live soon enough). I'll be adding my clean up crew in a few weeks, and then I get to introduce my true clown and black clow a few weeks after that.

I have a pair of skunks clowns, 2 gobies, a pistol, a cleaner and sexy shrimp, 3 red leg hermits, 4 turbo snails, hammer, candy cane, star, xenia, zoos, and yes they are all doing fine in my stock 12G old style nano, I do 2 water changes a week of 1 gallon and I top off every 2 days with RO and I dont overfeed, I have no skimmer, no extra mods, only thing I did is remove all the junk in the back of filter system and put lR in there instead.Havent lost a single animal or coral, tank is 6 months old.I want to add some shrooms later

Hey Sand, where are you located in Texas? I am up in Dallas.

 

My 2005 Version 12G DX will be here Friday with Cabinet Stand. The 13lbs of LR will be here Friday as well and I already have the LS. My water is already set up and ready because I bought another tank but I hate it so I went ahead and ordered what I really wanted.:) So I figured I would set up water and salinity and get my temps up in the tank, I will sell after I dump the water in my new DX.

I bought a JEBO 10 gallon with curved front. The only thing in it now is water and salt and a heater and some current. As soon as my new Nano and Stand get here tomorrow I am moving it to that and selling the other tank that I bought.:)

 

Anyone want a new tank for a good price?

 

Sand you got a PM, I live in Addison right near you.

i just added more LR to the first and second chamber and added a fish, its a Capped Damsel... pretty cool lil' guy, wish i had waited till my LFS had more percs, i woulda bought one of them. (percs seems to be smarter) i forgot to add that i dont have any of the orriginal filter media, i removed the bioballs, filters and the carbon as soon as i got the tank. all i have is chaeto and LR rubble in my first and seccond chambers.

rbaby: How did you get the rock to form the cave look? Did you use epoxy? Or is it one peice of LR? It looks like many peices.

Hey web, none of my rockwork is held by epoxy...only my frags. My pieces are actually 5 pieces...a bridge up top, in the middle and 2 bases and 1 small rock on the left upholding the bridge.
