  1. I need help with this project. I currently have the 12g nano cube LED tank, it has the following specs: 12-gallon Dimensions: 15.8" x 13.8" x 14.8" Capacity: 12 gallons LED Bulbs: 8 total: 5 blue, 3 white LED Total Output Wattage: 10.4W Pump: 8 W SP1-400 0.8 LIFT Power Supply: 110V, 60 Hz Weight: 29 lbs My question is, where do I find LED’s to replace the ones currently installed? I’d like to go more 50:50 on the color, maybe experiment with a red or purple in there as well. I have reached out to jbj customer service and was told they don’t offer replacement LEDs. This tells me I’ll need source them somewhere else. Any advice would be greatly appreciated! Thank you ?
  2. Hi everyone, I haven't posted for a long time, but am getting back into marine tanks after being tankless for many years after a move. I have an old JBJ Nano Cube DX, 12 gallon. It was retired, but I recently set it back up for a little mantis shrimp (who will likely be moving to a Fluval Spec V soon). The tank looks really nice, but I now remember why I retired it. The fans are VERY LOUD, and it runs hot without them. I'm looking to do one of two things: 1. Upgrade the lighting to LED in the existing top (retrofit), or 2. Remove the top altogether, find/make a cover (ideas or links to after market suppliers?) and put an LED strip light or gooseneck on top. I'm not looking for anything fancy. I'm looking to keep a lagoon type environment with zoanthids and soft corals, 1-2 smallish, hardy anemones (e.g., Florida flower anemone), small inverts/cleaners, may a couple tiny fish. I am NOT looking to have an SPS tank. I'm an experienced marine aquarium keeper, so I do understand stocking limits and won't be overstocking this tank. But I hate the lighting and the noise is driving me nuts. The canopy is ugly and dated too, IMO. I know this is the DIY forum, but I'd welcome suggestions for plug and play retrofit lighting for the hood OR a new top that I'll add an LED to. I have emailed Steve's LEDs, as they had an LED lighting upgrade for this system years ago, but don't list it now. All that said, I'm open to suggestions, so if there is a great build thread that is more FOWLR or LPS/Zoa tank, please post links. How I got back into the hobby: I have not had a marine tank since I moved in 2011 and sold or gave away almost all my tanks and livestock. Including 210. 44 pent, 55, several smaller tanks... I only kept a 29, 90, and the 12 gallon nano cube. I've been tankless since, about 7.5 years. I work at a mail order biological supply house (for educators). Our Florida Keys collector sent samples of live urchins for Biosmounts (museum quality preserved materials in a case) along with other living materials that department ordered. They couldn't use the two urchins, didn't want to just let them die, and came to me. I set up a tank for them in my office. Not long after, I sent our collector in the Florida Keys a request for THREE items for photography - yellow ball sponge, flower anemone, a mantis shrimp. He sent me a whole fish box of marine organisms, including five ball sponges and TWO mantis shrimp. I've had them set up in temporary tanks as I've found them homes locally. Some I'm keeping are in the simple 10 gallon setup in my office. But now I've got the bug again. 🙂 And would like to bring the 12 gallon Nano Cube (after upgrade) to work. Thanks in advance for any ideas!
  3. 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
  4. Hello all, first off I happy to become a member of the nano reef community. I inhareted a crashing cube that didn't make it. I cleaned the tank with vinegar added aragonite sand and some beautiful dry rock from reef cleaners (give them a look for dry rock it is gorgeous). I have learned a lot from the members on this site from lurking around and now have an idea of what I want to do with the 3 chambers. Thanks for any help in advance and I hope y'all can help. I have an idea I would like to do so I'll run past you experienced reefers. I pulled the sponges, rings, bioballs, and expired carbon and ordered an in tank media basket for chamber 1 a roll of filter floss, and purigen w/bags to use as needed. I also want to run two return pumps but I want the water to go through all three chambers so I will put a bulkhead in wall dividing chamber 2/3 put the 2nd pump in chamber 2 but plumb intake from chamber three with return nozzle out of chamber 2. To complete I want a skimmer/ato not to depend on, but for a neglect safety net (I have a weird work schedule) so at first I was thinking place the skimmer in chamber two like everyone else but then my need to experiment got the best of me and I wondered where does most surface scum end up so I added a cap of vegetable oil to my water only tank and noticed it stayed in chamber one for a few minutes then worked itself to chamber two where the heavier more condensed oil swirled around but the lighter broken down oil made it's way to chamber 3 where it stayed and did not make it's way back to the tan. That makes me wonder if I modify the return line to make the tunze fit would chamber 3 be a better place than two? Also would running two pumps make the flow in the sump so high it would render the skimmer useless? I don't want power heads cluttering the tank. Both returns would be 1/2 inch split loc line totalling 4 nozzles for random cross flow. Please tell me your thoughts even if you think it is ridiculous.

  7. Hey all, So here's the deal. I'm new this forum, and forums in general. I am asking for any help or advice that you guys may have for me to help me better my tank and get it running to top quality! I am desperate to successfully house a reef tank and definitely don't trust all the guys at my LFS. My background: I have attempted a reef tank back in 2013, but I unfortunately quickly succumbed to the many problems that come with reef tanks. I have always had a love for the ocean and reef tanks so I decided to why not give it another try and this time, do it right! So now, I am currently running a 28 gallon JBJ Nano cube Intermediate LED. I will add pictures to show you how I have it set up. It is equipped with an Eshopps Nano Skimmer, heater, stock pumps, and stock lights in the hood. I put the skimmer in the back center compartment where the stock media basket would normally go. I would like to use the media basket, but don't think I have anywhere to put it since the skimmer is in the center and will not fit anywhere else. To make up for no media basket, I put a bag of Chemi-pure Blue in the compartment next to the skimmer, so it gets water flow and that way, I can still run carbon. I also put a little bit of filter floss right in front of the back overflow box so it can trap any unwanted particles. I do have an extra 250 Gph powerhead that is attached to the front left of the tank, but it is not on and running at the moment. Still trying to debate wether or not I actually NEED that much flow (maybe you guys can help me). As far as live stock goes, I have as follows: -20 pounds live rock -10 pounds dry rock -20 pounds live sand -1 maroon clown -1 firefish -4 Astrae snails -6 blue legged hermits -1 peppermint shrimp -1 palythoa frag plug (was given to me for free by my LFS) This whole tank and set up has been up and running for about a month and a half now. I initially started with just the 20 pounds of live rock and 20 pounds of live sand to get my tank started. There was little to no die off, since everything was live and from my LFS that is less than 2 minutes away. So after 2 weeks of regularly checking the water, my levels never spiked. It all stayed at 0 and my nitrates never went past 1. I will add that I did not run my lights during this entire time. So after the 2 week point, I decided to add a maroon clown. I let the tank sit about another week and half with just the clown, still with no lights, until I realized I still had my dry rock from my previous tank in 2013. So I boiled and cleaned the living hell out of that dry rock, and added about 10 pounds of it to my tank (this was about 2 weeks ago). So after letting the dry rock settle for about 2 days, I performed my first water change. I did a 25% change, and then went and picked up my CUC. I got 6 Astrae snails, 6 blue legged hermits, and 1 peppermint shrimp for the small amount of aiptasia I was hoping he would get. He still hasn't. Anyways, after acclimating my CUC, I put them in the tank and only ended up losing 2 snails within the next 48 hours. Not too worried. It's just a snail. So at this point after putting in my CUC, I let them do their work for about 2 days. Then I went to my LFS and picked up my Firefish, as well as the free Palythoa frag plug I was given. I acclimated them both, and are both doing well to this day. My current parameters are as follows: Ammonia-0 Nitrite-0 Nitrates-<1 Ph-8 Alk-9 Ca-390 Phosphates- <.2 Now today, all my livestock seems to be doing well. My clown and firefish are alive and eating. My shrimp only comes out at night. Lost 2 snails, not sure why but will get more CUC as my tank matures. I have 3 very small aiptasia growing, and my peppermint doesn't seem to care about it. They never seem to open up, or grow too big so I'm not too worried about it right now, but I will definitely keep my eye on it. I also have some Caulerpa brachyus growing on 2 of my rocks. It seems to have seeded from the live rock. Again, not too worried about it since it is used as a nutrient export, but will definitely monitor it(what are your thoughts on Caulerpa?). The frag plug seems to be doing well to my knowledge! I expect to do another water change this upcoming Tuesday. NOW, I know that is a lot and nobody may even reply, but it is still worth the try for me. So given everything I said, what are your guys' thoughts? Am I doing this right? Is there anything I'm forgetting or doing wrong? What are your opinions on my methods? If there's anything I'm forgetting to mention, please ask or let me know! ALL ADVICE IS GREATLY APPRECIATED! Thank you everyone! This is my tank currently running
