rO.oster posted a topic in Aquarium JournalsThis will be my third foray into the saltwater reef keeping world. My tried and true Oceanic Biocube 29 has been sitting quietly in storage for 3 years now, patiently waiting for this day to arrive. The first two revisions (1 & 2) of this tank have taught me so much about this hobby. It's so interesting to read back over my past tank journals with the successes, the awe and fascination, the failures. I spent so much time researching these forums and watching the technology, trends and attitudes change as the years went by. Now, it feels like putting on a well worn pair of gloves as I once again go through the motions. I am ready for more amazement. I want to try and do a better job documenting my progress like I did during revision1. A lot of things occurred during revision2 that never were reported; oddities, new ideas, concerns with my method, wonderment. Each phase of the build, cycle, and growth deserves to be logged!

I welcome all feedback from this community and any questions you may have.
I was wondering if anyone could give me some advise or anything actually that will help me with an old Oceanic Biocube. The tips I keep finding are very old so I just wanted to know if those are still acceptable or if there is new information I could use?
👋🏻 hello! This is my first saltwater tank, and with not much of an aquarium culture in my little mountain town, I’m hoping to share and learn with some other obsessed aquarists! I’ve got a nice 55 gal South American freshwater planted tank that’s been going great for about 2 years. I got this biocube 29 used with all of the stock equipment, but have upgraded to the following -eheim 100 watt heater -inkbird temp controller -duetto ATO -IM wavelink wave maker -stock skimmer -dry rock from Bulk Reef Supply -inTank media basket with filter floss and bio media plate pieces -stock lighting (for now) I’m just now cycling, entering week 2, so feeding and testing for ammonia/nitrites. I seeded with seachem stability. Running with lights off. I will run a small Refugium with chaeto in the back sump when I get some nitrates and phosphates going. Would love to hear advice or encouragement! Thanks for letting me join the forum 👍🏻 Ps follow me on Twitter @JulieReefer
Looking to add fish to my 29 gallon biocube reef tank and wanting to hear what fish stocking others have successfully kept long term in this tank, or one of similar size? Please share your fish stocking list if you have had good long term success with your setup.
