I have no idea why a cube would be a pain? I think they are the perfect tank for that. Active fish can benefit from long tanks but not sure why cubes are any more challenging to scape. I have a...

I actually think the uv was a good option for me. I run it maybe once a month for half a day and feel I gain a little water clarity. I actually wanted low gph as I am filtering a 27 cube. I plan...

Using 2 will potentially double your coverage but to increase your par at any specific point requires the lights to overlap. I believe that is true anyway. You will get higher readings no doubt but...

I have the same tank and I absolutely love the sun sun. Flow seems perfect. I would guess it is around 100 gph though advertised at 265. I left the tubing long though.
