I'm looking into getting rid of my 55 gallon and purchasing a biocube. I have read several conflicting reviews and would like to hear what this forum has to say.

To be used as Freshwater or Saltwater?

In my opinion Bio cubes are an awesome all in one tank. The have a few compartments in the back one for a return pump, one for bio balls and such, and they also have a spot for a filter pad. Plus you can get foam blocks to put by the intake in then you have a shrimp tank.

The lighting is also pretty great for an all in one tank. two 32 watt power compacts. That's enough to grow a fair amount of plants.

i have a biocube 14..

-the built in filtration system is not that good unless you modify it.. i'll send you the link when i get to a computer..

-it comes with an actinic blue bulb that is useless for photosynthesis.. and a 10k 24watts bulb, that is way too much if you don't match it with co2.. cause if you don't, staghorn and BBA will be a common friend.. most of the plants that i have, had grown vertically due to high lighting..

most biocube owners i know changed the top, and i'm on the verge in doing so.. which is another $59++..

and yeah, if you want to change the bulb with 67k will cause you around $13 + s/h..

don't get me wrong, i love my tank.. but if could do it all over again? i'd go a different route..
