I have glass flaws, does that count? Could become a crack!! I nice bow in small area of the glass on the front near the right. It is blurry and has bubbles in it. You can see a line there as well. Could not be a good thing in the long run. But I have spoke to JBJ and a replacement with hood will be coming. One of my nights lights stopped working after 1 month as well.

24DX

Started Jan 05

Cracked June 05 (in the front left corner from top to bottom)

 

15+ Gallons on the floor, soaked through the carpet into the living room below. Lost carpet, padding and ceiling fan downstairs. So far so good in the temp tank, but I have to imagine the shock isnt good for the livestock. I'm very lucky the house didnt burn down. I made the huge mistake of leaving the ballast on the floor next to the stand (temporarily while I finish up the new stand).

 

I'm hoping JBJ comes through on the replacement quickly.

There's GOT to be more than 59 Nano Cube Hobbyists on this forum. PLEASE - we need EVERYONE to vote one way or the other for their Nano Cube so that we get an accurate result!

 

I agree with thebrian also - if you have multiple cubes that have either cracked - or not cracked - report that in your post. We can count them all up manually later and do the math.

 

As of right now, with all the multiples added in (7 extra NOs and 1 extra YES), we're at

 

NO - 59 (81.94%)

YES - 13 (18.06%)

 

Thanks for all the reports and posts! Let's keep at it!

Just bought it 5 hrs ago, opened the box and this is what I get?

 

btw - this glass is THIN!

12g Nano Delux, the store swapped it out - I'll stick with AGA/Oceanic tanks in the future... hoping this new tank doesn't crack on me.

no cracks yet (fingers crossed) i did a good inspection before i brought it home and am extra careful when i move rocks or clean the glass. i've had aquariums break before and know it's not pretty. but if smth does happen i have a qt set up to house everything.

PS: I voted saying that my nano cracked but I could not vote for the other option also, saying my cube is NOT cracked.

Current numbers -

 

9:00 PM EDT 06-27-2005

 

NO Cracks - 69 (88.4%) [9 extra NOs]

Yes, Cracked - 18 (11.6%) [1 extra YES]

 

I did NOT count Gamma-Cube as a crack - that was definitely a shipping error!

On reflection, and in the pursuit of real numbers, mine should count as shipping errors as well.
