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.
General question. I have a bio cube 16G, I replaced the filter media that came with it with chemipure, carbon, live rock and phosguard. im getting ready to redo my filter media (replace all the older stuff) what Media do you experienced aquarium folks use or what would you suggest?
I got a bio-cube 16 for Christmas. It’s been up and running for going on 4mo. I’ve got live rock & sand (of course) with 3 hermits (2 blue, 1 red), 2 turbos, 2 conch snails. Thinking about getting a cleaner. Water perimeters seems great, believe it to be cycled fully. The kit came with a skimmer but it’s pretty terrible. My question for this longer then necessary post is “Do I need a skimmer or not for a tank this size”? might as well ask if I need a nano blower as well. thanks folks for the help. JTT
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!
