    I should've thought of a better title...oh well. For a low-tech, planted freshwater tank. I was given a 29-gallon BioCube. No filters or pumps, just the tank and the lid with some lights. It has these 3 back chambers that act as a sump and for filter media, I think. I was thinking of removing...

    Hi all, So I have about 17 years worth of experience in fish keeping. I started when I was five with your typical zebra danio-filled community tank with a pleco and quickly moved into marine tanks. I started my first reef at 11 years old with my father and have not stopped since then. I just...

  5. Low Tech Forum
    I recently took down my biocube 14 reef and I am thinking of turning it into a low tech, planted tank. Is there anyone with vast knowledge of these biocubes as planted tanks? Should I get rid of the actinic cf bulb for another 10000k bulb? And if so, would that put me into the high light end...

    My tanks are always evolving so I figured it's time to share, plus that makes it more fun to look back in a few months to see how far I've gone(off the deep end). Currently the main tank is a 14g biocube. Here is the FTS as of today: So wheres the shrimp? Here we go: Livestock includes...
  8. General Planted Tank Discussion
    So, I've decided that I'd like to change the aquascape in my 14 gallon Biocube. I've had this tank for a bit now and always ran it freshwater. It's quite a beautiful tank itself but my aquascaping skills never really please me. Anyhow, it's all stock except I replaced one of the bulbs with...

    So I have a 14 gallon biocube setup and I would like to use the middle chamber to build my tiered filtration system.

    I have been wanting a planted tank for a long time but I was never sure if I could convince my wife to let me spend the money. Well she agreed finally :D so we revived this tank from a failed attempt at saltwater tanks. So I read through this site till my eyes glazed over from content overflow...

  14. DIY
    So I have a lovely Biocube (14G) that I adore for its super lighting and filter. Only problem is that I've recently moved home from college and suddenly my tank has gone from no algae at all to BBA all over the leaves of my plants. Yuck! So currently I've got the lights completely off to put the...
