NC24DX born 13 June 2005. No crack.
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.
No cracks (my first nano-cube was delivered cracked and sent back)
Initial setup up 1/05(stock)
ran it for 3 months no problems
Re-setup 3 weeks(june 1st) ago with two iceprobes drilled in the back glass and a CPR bakpak hanging off the back as well. No problems.
I have a 12 Gallon dx 1st Edition,set it up on Jan.11,2005,No cracks and has performed well,It has no mods other than replaced the pump.Bought it from my LFS.Must have been shipped really well.
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.
Nano Cube - 24G
Started May 1, 2005
Cracked May 21, 2005
Tank leaked approx. 8 Gallons of water.
Wood flooring soaked, water leaked through flooring.
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!
2 cubes for me, 0 cracks.
(I voted, but could only put in 1 count )
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.
Ya know something...from this photo...it DOES look thin. SH
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.
cracked june 10th
new 12 from jbj in the mail hope this one isn't cracked
no livestock or carpet loss
12 DX Model
Here's hoping Delta-Cube shows up in one piece!
I'm off to start drinking! CHEERS!
HOLY S$%^&^T....I think mine is arrving tonite. Bets anyone? SH

Purchase at LFS
Are you kidding me???
Started mid Jan
Hairline crack, top right, noticed last week.
No leak, no losses.
JBJ replacement should be arriving soon...don't know if I want it after seeing this.
Holy crap!! So sorry for you. I hope not to read of any murders of JBJ executives tomorrow in the paper, but if I do I'll understand. that really stinks
don't ask for cube quad!! just demand your $$ back!! do you really want another one of these?
6 months old
I have 2 24 gallon DX Nano Cubes.
1 up and running 5 months, no cracks (fingers crossed)
1 up and running 1.5 months. Cracked at the back glass pane.
PS: I voted saying that my nano cracked but I could not vote for the other option also, saying my cube is NOT cracked.
sneirbo, maybe someone is trying to tell you smth... maybe you should go acrylic?
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.
