  1. Dear Fellow-Reefers, Greetings to all! Hope this post finds everyone well. First and foremost, I would like to give a shout out to @Jackal227, whose post on the BioCube 16 was tremendously helpful as I went through it before I setup mine. On the same lines, I also thank @Cpl_Wiggles for sharing valuable information on his tank and experience with the BioCube. Thank you so much! And I very well agree - "There are many posts regarding the BioCube 14 but very less information related to the Coralife BioCube 16 LED." That being said, I would also be sharing my journey with all of you and thanks to this platform, it will help me with my continual learning in the Magical World of Reefing! I've kept aquariums from the past 6 years but all of them were freshwater only. It is very recently I got hands-on with saltwater tanks. I've friends who have kept saltwater tanks for a long time and that helped with the familiarity around operations, but it took some time for me to convince myself that I can pull it through with full dedication and give my best to help thrive a healthy reef aquarium. Since this was my debut with saltwater, I wanted to keep it compact, space saving and easy to care for. That was when I started researching and reading a lot about Nano-Reefs. It was indeed very intriguing and thus a BioCube. I fortunately stumbled upon a great deal for this AIO aquarium + add-ons, that I couldn't resist and it was a no-brainer after some of my reefer friends told me to grab it without hesitations. TANK HIGH LEVEL CHARACTERISTICS (Updated as on 03/14/2019) ⇨ Aquascape : 12.5 lb. of CaribSea Life Rock ⇨ Sand : 10 lb. of CaribSea Fiji Pink Arag-Alive! Live Reef Sand ⇨ Heater : Cobalt Aquatics Neo-Therm Heater, 75 Watt ⇨ Lighting : AI Prime HD+ ⇨ Powerhead : Nero 5 Submersible Powerhead ⇨ Pump : Coralife S-700 Stock Return Pump / Cobalt MJ900 (I swap them during my 60 days full tank maintenance) ⇨ Skimmer : Coralife BioCube Protein Skimmer (was bundled with the BioCube package) // I had to replace the stock air pump as it turned out faulty // SUMP DETAILS Chamber 1 In the first chamber, I've my skimmer. Chamber 2 I upgraded the stock media rack with the InTank Media Basket which was worth all the $. The InTank filtration basket is really well built and does the job very well. In the top section, I have a double-bonded filter floss (by InTank). The second section has Seachem Purigen and PhosGuard, and the lowest/bottom section has Chemipure Elite. Chamber 3 This has the return pump and the heater. As mentioned above, its the stock pump Coralife S-700 (185 GPH) or Cobalt MJ900 (215 GPH).
