    Bio Cube 32 Aquarium Journal

    Setting up a new saltwater tank and thought I would create a journal for everyone to follow. Setup: i stared with a Corallife LED Bio Cube 32. I used dry rock that I had from a previous tank and dry sand. To get the cycle started I added a bottle of Purple Helix and something the LFS gave me to increase the ammonia. I purchases a couple items from InTank Aquatics. A upgraded media basket and refugium for the 2nd camber. In the Media basket I added filter media at the top, Seachem Purigen and Boyd Chemi Pure Blue 5.5oz. I also bought a Finnex HMX 150w digital Heater which I placed into the first camber. The tank cycled after about 13 days. I added saltwater from LFS, Seascape Studio, which is also where I bought the tank. After 2 weeks: i had a small diatom bloom that I clean up and it didn’t come back during this time. My Nitrates have been around 5ppm. first fish a pair of Snowflake Clown Fish Added Electric Blue Daisy Zoathids Added Orange Delight Zoathids Afrter 3 weeks: i have seen very little algae and diatoms so far tank was looking great. Doing weekly water changes of around 10%. I get the water from LFS. pH was low around 7.4. I moved my pump outlet to point more at the surface of the water. I also put the refugium light on a reverse cycle. Added a Emerald Crab Added a Trumpet Coral frag which I got for $10 Added Neon Green Nephthya Leather Coral (Favorite Coral) Started a refugium with chaeto and a Inovative Marine Refugium light added copepods added cleanup crew 2 Trochus Snails Nassurius Snail Scarlet Hermit After 4 Weeks: The refugium is not doing well. My Chaeto isn’t growing Nitrates are still at 5ppm and I’m having problems getting it down any lower even with increased water changes. pH went to 7.8 then is now around 8 Added a Hydro FLO rotating Water Deflector purchased a better test kit, Red Sea Marine Test kit Added a Blue ricordea added a green ricordea added a candy cane coral purchased a Hydor Slim-Skim Nano Protein Skimmer to maybe help with the nitrates After 5 Weeks: Snail died and I didn’t realize it until to late. Nitrates went to 20ppm and then I figured it out. Did a 50% water change and the Nitrates went to 10ppm. My calcium has been consistently around 450. PH still around 8. I have had a diatom bloom ever since the snail died. I have clean it multiple times and still comes back. I have decided to leave it be and wait it out. i couldn’t get the skimmer to fit in chamber 1 so I moved rocks around and placed it into the tank. The top of the hood will need to be modified a little for a better fit this week. i mounted corals to the rock. i have been adding Phytoplankton every couple days removed the chaeto since it has just been dying. i have seen copepods occasionally but still would like to seed the tank with more from algae barn. I wont be getting another fish until my diatom bloom is over and my can get my Nitrates closer to 0. I’m thinking I need better flow and might get a power head this week. I will upload picture of my fish and tank later this week.
  2. Was planning on upgrading my tank to this 24 gal but decided to just wait until I can upgrade to something in the triple digits. Tank has been completely cleaned out and scrubbed real good, in great condition with absolutely no leaks. The person I bought it from also provided a stand but it’s in rough condition so I never used it, you’re more than welcome to take that as well. Comes with the pump and a spinning nozzle for random flow throughout the tank. Surface skimmer. Stock hood (missing the little door that you lift to feed the fish) has the stock light and works just fine. Does not come with any other filtration media in the chambers but I will be more than happy to provide box crate and zip ties for you to make your own filter media basket (which is way better than the original basket anyways.) I can also throw in some polyfill to get you started on the mechanical filtration. Bought it for $175 yours for $90 LOCAL PICK UP ONLY!!!!! San Fernando Valley, California
