  1. Hi everyone, thanks for visiting my journal. 🙂 I got started in the hobby to take my mind off of work stress back in February 2018, and set up my Biocube 16 on 3/3. I was immediately hooked and started my second tank, my IM Nuvo 10, on 6/16. I really appreciate all of the knowledge and support I’ve found here. This hobby, and the community, got me through a tough time in my life, so thank you for that! I’ve learned so much in the past few months, and I’ve enjoyed the beauty and wonder in everyone’s tanks. 💛 Recent full tank shots: Biocube 16 (stock LED lights), February 28, 2019 Daylights Beauty Lights Blues Nuvo 10 (AI Prime) Favorite Pics: Biocube 16, Taken 4/23/19 Biocube 16, Taken 5/17/19 Current Biocube 16 Setup, as of 1/26/2019: Light Schedule, Stock LED Lights: LC1 11 am - 9:00 pm LC2 10 am - 9:30 pm LC3 6 am - 12:30 am  Chamber 1: Coralife skimmer, temp probe, false floor still intact, tab between chamber1 & 2 still intact (I recommend keeping the tab intact as it supports the Coralife skimmer if you ever want to use one) Chamber 2: Stock media rack, filter floss, Chemipure Elite (for up to 25 gallon), 2 sacks of matrix media Chamber 3: Cobalt Neotherm 50W heater, Chill Solutions chiller pump and hoses, Purigen (for up to 100 gallon) which is sitting in the spot where the small black sponge filter was (if you take out the sponge, save it in case you want it in the future) Original Journal Pics, from August 2018: Equipment Ideas for Beginners: When I first set up my tank, it was difficult to figure out what I really needed to run my tank, so I thought I would post my suggestions here to give people a nice starting point and maybe help you avoid the trial and error process I went through.

    Biocube 16 Gallon

    Well, I feel as if I'm a bit lost while finally starting up my tank. I started it up around 5 months ago, and by this time people usually have coral's and such in their tanks. I had trouble though because as I went forward I found myself having heat issues, so I replaced the stock hood with a AI Prime. It seems to work for the heat and now I have the ability to grow more corals. Along with this, I had to upgrade the tank quite a bit and upgrading this tank was quite costly for me (I'm 14, so other than a monthly allowance, money is hard to come by). I was interested in the hobby since I was 10, and so I had to save up years worth of Christmas money for this! Finally starting this up for me was a dream of mine, and I hope to some day make a living of off this, though its probably unlikely. Anyways, I've been having some mixed issues with how my tank currently looks. I'm on forums quite a bit so I feel as if I have the basics of this hobby down, but when I look at my tank as it is today, I feel like somethings wrong. I currently have it stocked with three trochus snails about four days ago and that's about all. Any advice on what to do next? I still need to upgrade the stock pump but I don't know what to upgrade it with. I'm also confused if the algae growing in my tank are diatoms or hair algae. My current test levels are: pH: 8.0ppm Nitrate: 0ppm Nitrite: 0ppm Ammonia 1.0ppm (Tested today, after finding out I did a 30% water change) Salinity: 1.025ppm Currently, all I'm looking for are tips and information for moving forward. Like, what should I stock my tank with? I've been looking at a pair of Masked Gobies, a Firefish, or a Court Jester Goby. Or types of coral I should look into. So if you have any Ideas as of what that algae could be, or what I could stock my tank with, I would greatly appreciate it.
  3. Help! I set up my 16-gallon Biocube yesterday and something is wrong with the pump that came with it. I currently have live rock, sand, a fluval fan, and saltwater in the tank. In the back I have media, a heater, and the pump the tank came with. I was expecting a hum noise from the pump but it is very loud. To the point we have to raise our voices to talk if we’re in the same room as the tank. It sounds like a very loud buzzing noise coming from the pump. I’ve tried moving it in the chamber and playing with the suction cups on the bottom of it and the noise still persists. Any advice on what to do or other pumps to try?

    Ocean_dreamer89’s BioCube 16

    Hello!  I recently decided to start my very first saltwater tank. Growing up I had a few freshwater tanks, but they were your “average joe let’s go to PetsMart and get a tank” tank. I grew up on the water and have always had a deep love for the ocean. So much so that I have it tattoo’d on my entire left arm 🤗. Since I’ve never cared for a saltwater mini ecosystem before! I dove into the internet and a few few books to learn as much as I can. It is through that process that I found this site and learned the most. I realized that experience is the best way to learn, but maybe my experience with this can help someone else kickstart their adventure. I ended up going with the BioCube 16 because I love the all in one package and the programmable lights. I would’ve preferred the 32, but weight restrictions with my stand kept me at 16......for now. 😬  Tank:. Biocube 16 gallon Saltwater: Bought from LFS Aquascape: About 5 lbs live rock and 10 lbs dry rock from LFS Sand: 16 lbs Nature’s Ocean Bio-Activ Aragonite Live Sand (about 1 inch deep) Lighting:. Stock LED's Powerhead: Hydor Koralia 425 and Hydor Koralia 240 w/ wavemaker (alternate every 15 min) Heater: Hygger Titanium 50 W w/ Thermometer Biological Filtration: Live Rock (added Dr. Tim’s Nitrifying Bacteria) Chemical Filtration: Activated charcoal, 6 tsp Purigen, 1/3 cup PhosGuard, Chaeto Mechanical Filtration: Duel Density Filter Pad Tank Modifiations: Removed the false bottom in chamber #1 to allow space for the heater; extra biomedia in chamber 1 for QT/hospital tank P.S. I love hearing other people’s opinions and suggestions! Please comment all you want!!!

  5. Intro Hey everyone, I've done freshwater tanks for the past few years but this is my first foray into saltwater. My fiancée's father has a 120g that piqued my interest and the ongoing pandemic convinced me to pull the trigger on a new project. After considering my options, I went with the Biocube 16g for a few reasons: 1) I like the dimensions and I want to use the additional vertical space compared to other nano tanks; 2) I plan to use the stock LEDs and it seems the consensus on the forums is the presence of the hood minimizes evap so I don't need an ATO system, both of which helped me keep the cost of the tank down, and 3) it was slightly bigger than other nano options and I felt that would expand my livestock options. Just got everything set up and took a quick picture, planning to start cycling very soon. Specs Tank: Biocube 16 gallon Salt Mix: Fritz Reef Pro Mix Sand: Caribsea Aragamax Select Lighting: Stock LED hood Powerhead: Jebao OW-10 Wave Maker When I first put this into the tank it was definitely running louder than expected. I took it out, disassembled it, and just put it back together to see if that would help align things. Worth it, put it back it and it's been super quiet. Now I just have to get the right angle/power combo so it's not pushing the sand out of the corners! Heater: BRS 100w heater (chamber 1) Biological Filtration: ~1/2 liter Seachem Matrix (chamber 3) Chemical Filtration: Chemipure Blue (chamber 2) Mechanical Filtration: Poly Filter (chamber 2) Tank Modifications: removed false bottom in chamber 1; expanded chamber 1 overflow cutout I struggled with removing the false bottom, my recommendation would be to hook something like big curved scaping tweezers in the gap by the back-right corner; you can pop it out with some upward force, then pull it out with the tweezers. I first tried pulling the rails out, which not only did not release the false bottom but also scattered bits of plastic in the bottom of chamber 1, which I then had to pick out of the sand once I started filling the tank. Do not recommend. I also struggled to expand the overflow cutout without demolishing the whole thing. I ended up using wirecutters to make a vertical cut along the side, then a second horizontal cut toward the bottom to cleanly cut the piece off. While this worked better than I expected (after a few attempts), make sure your circulation isn't running when you do this, as I had the plastic go into the second chamber. Luckily it just landed on my filter floss so it was easy to remove.

    Bio cube 16 mixed reef journey

    this thread will follow set up and progression of my mixed reef tank... or at least my attempt at it. this tank sits on our kitchen counter which is why I chose an all in one. Even then there is a tangle of wires and hoses. But it’s discrete enough and my 2 little girls love it so far. 2 months in after initial set up. -upgraded to maxi jet 900 to increase flow -removed coralife UV sterilizer as it might have been inhibiting flow - reduced feeding to every other day - added chaeto to chamber 1 with basic white led desk light lying around house. - running 1 fresh bag of carbon and 2 bags of ceramic rings in stock sump rack chamber 2 -Kamoer ATO one -12 lbs Marco reef saver dry rock -1 or 2 inches live sand Inhabitants: -false percola clown fish - blue neon cleaner goby - high fin red banded goby - tiger pistol shrimp coral: red chalice frag favia frag florida ricordia. currently battling ugly algae tank phase. 😱

    New Reefer- BioCube 16

    Hello everybody, I’m looking for help/advice in setting up a brand new nano reef tank. So I allowed my daughter to bring some hermit crabs home from Florida and turns out they were marine thin stripe crabs. After much groaning, I find a Fluval 13.5 online and it arrives broken. I’ve already had these crabs is a makeshift container for over a week so I bought a Coralife BioCube 16 from a local fish store at a great price. I set up the cube last night with Arag-Alive Bahama sand and Imagitarium Pacific Ocean water and set the crabs inside. This morning the water has cleared up and I have some CaribSea life rock coming today. The heater is working well and has the water at 80 degrees. I tested the water and got the following with my API master saltwater kit. PH: 7.9 Amonia: .25-.50 Nitrite: 0 Nitrate: 0 Is this normal? Do I need to add any of these additives I see? Thanks in advance. Any feedback is greatly appreciated.
  8. Hi! So I’m rather new to this and just setup our new nano reef - we are on week four (one week post cycle). Majority of the rock was added upon setup - and a few recently from the same LFS. IVE My question is, does it seem painted? I’m not as concerned about the calcareous algae as I am about it leeching into the water? The live rock tank it came from had some fish, and the rock is still covered in small sponges/live feather worms, as well as a 2 inch brittle star we found, but if I break it open it appears smooth and white. Is this still functional for beneficial bacteria? I’ve included some pics, any advice is appreciated!

    New tank questions

    Hi everyone, New to the hobby and just setup my biocube 16 earlier this week. Used the natures ocean live sand and got 15lbs of cured live rock from my LFS. My tank is currently cycling. I got a 480 GPH powerhead from a friend and installed that yesterday. I had to reposition it numerous times due to it pushing my sand around but, finally found a spot that it does not disturb anything. I do plan on getting corals at some point. Along with the return pump would this be too much flow for my tank? I also feel like I have a lot of live rock in my tank. I can access the sides and back with my gravel vacuum. Does my live rock setup look okay for when I get coral? I'm particularly worried about being able to get anything on the top piece of live rock or is that enough room? Any opinions are appreciated because I am overthinking this 😂 thank you for your time!

    Cycle question biocube

    Hello all! Thanks for readimg, I just have a quick question. I plan on filling my biocube 16 tonight and I'm not sure what filtration to run through the cycle. I initially planned on doing filter floss on top, and maybe the matrix media for the cycle? I also have pyrogen and carbon but not sure if it should be added right away during cycle. Also, can someone tell me how the mechanical filtration goes on top? Stupid noob question lol but not sure if it goes on top of this top part, or directly under it? And finally, I removed the sponge in between chamber 2 and 3 and am planning on running some carbon there. Thanks in advance!

    BioCube 16g at 16 months!

    I started my BioCube on February 26, 2018. Although I have had numerous saltwater tanks, this is my first attempt at a reef tank. In the first chamber, I have a Cobalt Neo-Therm and a sack Boyd's Chemi-Pure Elite. The second chamber has an InTank media basket, replacing the bio-balls with MarinePure Media Spheres. The third chamber houses a Cobalt Aquatics MJ Pump. To increase circulation I uses a Hydor Korailia Evolution Nano 240. Finally, on November 24, 2018, I removed the hood and added a Kessil A160WE Tuna Blue. My BioCube is still a work in progress. I am very much open to any and all suggestions.
  14. I tried to search for this but kept getting error messages!? I have the retrofit kit plus M for my Biocube 16. I finally got it 90% installed (long frustrating story). What levels/percentages should I start out at? The videos are little help? In the controller setup video it show picking "Nanobox Reef" and then the model. When I go through the steps the controller I can pick the Manufacturer, but no the model? I chose the "Mixed Reef" settings, as i have a mixture. But I can't imagine the percentages should be the same for all tanks??? I'm happy with the look of the lighting, just want the settings to be whats best for my corals. Thank you in advance!
