Nano cube?


I'm interested at starting a nano tank.

As i'm gathering info on it, i discovered the nano cubes ( yes, i'm a newbie!).
I'm confused, do they have 24 or 48 w on it?

And if its 24 w, is it sufficient for the 12g of the tank?

anyone who has a nano cube willing to give me any info on that tank?
Is it worth it to buy it?, or should i buy a regular small tank, and make my onw lightning?

thanx

The standard nano cube comes w/24W of lighting stock. If you are interested in more lighting, then you might want to wait a bit. They have that same tank w/48W of lighting.

I have a nanocube and its 24 watts. Its good enough to grow some plants, but now they have a deluxe nanocube and it comes with 48watts! The Deluxe system is 150 instead of 99 or 89$. BUT its well worth it! On such a small tank like this, 48watts would be growing anything!

That's interesting...

Here's an example of what the lighting in the standard nanocube is capable of:

I didn't think that the deluxe nanocube was a 24 gallon either, so I did a search on it and it turns out to be a 12 gallon (same size as the regular nanocube).

I have a 12G JBJ Nano cube and find it to be a great deal. The 24 watts of PC lighting is plenty of light to grow almost any plant. I have grown Rotala indica, Ricca and a carpet of Baby Tears to name a few.

so besides the cool looking tank with no frame... what are the advantages of a nano cube vs a normal one?

Well, I like how I have only three cords comming from the back of it. Its a nice looking tank anyways with the black back and has a huge compartment for filtration. Plus the pimp lights

How in the hell can a 24 gallon tank be considered "Nano"... I think a 12 gallon is pushin the "Nano" category... Nano to me was always 10 gallons and smaller.
