Ok, well, I am going to cut and paste an email I received from JBJ this morning. I am pretty happy with their response and they answered within 2 hours of me emailing them. So maybe there is hope for the 2006 Nanocube. Here is the email:
Hello Paul or Ann,
thank you for your interest in our 24 gallon Nano-Cube.
We have had success with our Nano-Cube line, including the popular 24 gallon model. Due to the weight and size of the 24g model, it does have higher rates of damage due to shipping and handling.
The new 2006 edition of the Nano-Cubes have addressed these issues as well as many upgraded features which is scheduled to be released by early November.
New Features for 2006:
1. All electrical components will be UL Listed and follow the highest safety standards in the industry.
2. Newly redesigned pump with more water flow with less energy consumption. Also will be UL listed.
3. Stronger brace for impact
4. Double Corrugated exterior box
5. Newly molded interior styrafoam with corner supports
6. Quieter fans
7. New Modular Surface Skimmer Attachment. Included with no extra charge. Easily attaches and removes surface scum.
