So I got this biocube for Christmas, took a month to realize anything under 30 gallons is a masochist’s wet dream no pun intended lol. I’ve been taking pictures, and keeping notes of mods just in case someone would like to do the same. I did have some questions… Lighting cycle, Whats the optimal time window, and length under 450nm. Does lighting affect ph? if so whats the best time to do water test? I would like to get a green and purple frogspawn, can’t seem to get it local! I’m in central PA!. Hopefully I can get that clown to host it. Any coral recommendations for this size tank?

    The best description I can give right now is a circular clear sack with white dots inside. I just ordered a macro lens 🤷‍♂️
  5. I added about 15 small nassarius snails, 4 scarlets, and copepods... couple days later these things pop up.

    Just a tub, live sand, mangrove seedling, pump, and heater. No live stock. Just ordered a cheap corner filter to go in there also

    Nope, is that something to try?
  8. Hello everyone! I started a quarantine tank, and I can’t figure out what this slimy stuff is? Just a tub, live sand, mangrove seedling, pump, and heater.
