  1. That's a great idea to keep the temp stable, I am just worried about the extra hoses to fit in back and the extra pump in the tank as well with any leaks that may happen from the water constantly moving outside the tank. I am just trying to keep it as simple as possible. I initially got this tank and the clowns for my kids 4 years ago, they are bored with them and now I am into the saltwater hobby. The clowns started making babies about a year ago and have been consistently doing so every 12 days or so, unfortunately they die and i don't have the time or space to feed the fry live rotifers, I wish they would stop having babies. I also live in an apartment and the building has rules about tanks and sizes etc.
  2. I have a Coralife Biocube 14 and its been working for the past 4 years. In the summer I have trouble with heat, so i reduce the lighting schedule and the fans are noisy. I am thinking of replacing the hood with the new BioCube 16 LED canopy. Does anyone know if the new LED canopy in the biocube 16 ($175) is less noisy and creates less heat? Also was looking at the NanoBox Retro Kit ($265). Does anyone have experience with this as well? Does it work well? How is the heat? I have a couple of clowns and xenia coral. Not thinking of going heavy on coral but might want to add a few more pieces. Finally was thinking of just getting a light and remove hood but am worried about too much evaporation and fish jumping so would go with a plastic clear lid but cant find anything like that. Thanks for any help.
