    Biocube 32 stock lights

    Alright, do you know if a lot of people have had good experiences in terms of growth with the light?
  2. So long story short, my budget has reduced a bit for money I can spend on the equipment (Bought a $400 freshwater pufferfish because it became available earlier than I though), and my budget is now $800 dollars (I have a SET amount of money dedicates towards fish) and I was think about getting a biocube 32, but I figured that theres no budget reason to purchase it over like a nuvo fusion if im just gonna upgrade the light right away, so I'm pretty much wondering how is the bio cube 32 light, really. Can it grow easier corals like some Softies and LPS, or will it keep them alive but not see tons of growth, or will it not even be enough to support them. Thoughts? Any cheaper AIO options out there? Any story or experiences much appreciated.

    Stocking a 40 Breeder

    Yeah, I just found a great, great deal on a NEW JBJ 45 so I might go with that tank, I would love a bigger fish but I just don't think its in the budget right now...

    group of Wrasses in a 30L nuvo?

    I might do a JBJ 45, found a GREAT deal for one, so I feel the footprint is bit small for a wrasse, so I might skip them... sadly. But if I ever upgrade I will for sure have some wrasses.

    group of Wrasses in a 30L nuvo?

    Alright, thanks for the reply. Any other opinions?
  8. So I've decided to do a nuvo 30L for my first tank (my first tank that will be my own). I will have the IM ghost skimmer and one media caddy, for now I will have 3 korelias, and it will be a mixed reef. I know two fish I LOVE, and I also love wrasses, my stocking list will be below 1 yellow clown goby (I love this fish) 1 Watchmen and shrimp pair (Also love this combo) 1 cleaner shrimp 2-3 narrsarius snails 2-3 Trochus snails Possible stocking Some kind of flasher wrasse I really love the carpenters wrasse and was wondering if I could do a group of wrasses in a 30L, I've heard you have have mixed genders or different species together, don't know what to do. Remember they will be the only free swimming fish, is this possible if not are there any other wrasses I could have in a group (preferable not to to to pricey) or as a solo? Thoughts??

    How are the HIPARGERO LEDs?

    My budget for everything (including livestock and equipment for the next like 6 months) is like 1300-1500 and I think that in a perfect world under 200 would be excellent, but I was gonna do two AI primes, but I found these and they seem cool, yeah I do mean the mount, got the words mixed up... 😁 Im pretty sure you can dim the amount of blue? But one reason I love the lights first of all there on amazon, so I can easily (easier than eBay) refund them, also more people have them so I can relate to there success story, and lastly they don't need to be hung by the room or a wall mount, these lights mount to the tank. (accidentally quoted you twice so and im to dumb to delete the second one sorry 😬) Thanks for sharing you success, you give me hope that cheaper lighting for coral growth is possible! And this tank is very shallow (about the same as yours) and I will be doing two, and if I really need it I might upgrade to 3 later on. But what other lighting do you mean?? Thanks Y'all for the help, any more opinions?

    Flow for a Nuvo 30l

    Ok so what I'm hearing is I should probably upgrade my return, I might just run like three koralias, or 2 elfux's, what ever budget allows, also whats a good budget return (that would need modifications to fit the tank and will be an easy install). Thanks you for the replies.

    Flow for a Nuvo 30l

    So I've narrowed down my potential AIO's to start back up again with and I have a moderate budget and I would like to get good equipment but can afford the great stuff (like a MP-10). I really like the USA current E-Flux 660 Because its controllable and I've heard pretty good reviews. Im basically wondering if I could provide all my flow in my nuvo 30l with one Current USA Eflux wave maker and the stock return pump. I will be keeping corals that prefer low to moderate flow. Thoughts??

    How are the HIPARGERO LEDs?

    Alright, which timer do you suggest, the ones I have for my freshwater tanks that I love have been discontinued... what do you suggest?? Also I think I might go for this light because it has a gooseneck which is awesome.

    How are the HIPARGERO LEDs?

    I love looking around amazon and Ive always wanted a 3 or 4 foot tank but I don't have the budget to light one, but I came across this HIPARGERO LED 30w and it has great reviews on amazon and youtube and such. Hows this light really, I would love to see some decent growth from basic LPS and some softies, live Zoas, Toadstools, mushrooms, Leathers, Hammers, frogspawn, candy canes, and elegance coral. How would these lights do, I would have one for about every 18x18x18 space, I know that these don't have a timer so I could just use a separate timer, I would like to try some super basic SPS like Montis and maybe a easy clam. Would these lights do the trick?

    Stocking a 40 Breeder

    Alright, I might do a 75 or I might go with a 40 nuvo... can't choose

    Stocking a 40 Breeder

    Yeah, but after looking into the 75 more, I realized that I would need 2 AI primes, and two of. them with goosenecks would be $460 which is quite pricey, I might do the reef pack but I am thinking of just buying the skimmer, and get a separate ATO, but I don't know if I want a Tunze skimmer or the Reef octopus hang on back, I can't choose...
