  1. Biocube 14 Bulb change !?

    So, I have had this tank with original PC bulbs for over a year, at what point in time do you want to change to new bulbs ? Do you wait until they blow out ? There is 1 x actinic and 1 x 10k bulb. Opinions ? -Mike
  2. Hydor Flo deflector (Brand New)

    Hydor Flo deflector for sale ! BRAND New, I put it on for probably 10seconds before I realized it was not for me. Good for nano or what not, just purchased from Amazon.com. I paid $15 shipped to my door, you can have it for $10 or frag trade Reason I dont want it is with the stock pumps...
  3. Distilled Salt Water?

    Hey, wondering if anyone uses store bought Distilled water instead of RO/DI for water changes or top off. I have a small nano (14g), and I do not see the need to purchase an RO/DI unit. I would rather use WalMart distilled water, I am just wondering if anyone else has experimented with this...
  4. Snow

    Looks like the snow is on its way. I left for a ski trip, and put the tank on autodrive. I would enjoy reports on possible power outages.... Basically if the power goes out I am screwed... (fingers crossed)
  5. Hydor Flo

    Heyy, Has anyone else installed the hydor flo ? I had my biocube 14 running for about a year without it, with stock pump. Flow was actually really good with the stock bill output. Since I installed the hydor flo today there is not much flo coming from that pump anymore. I have a koralia...
  6. Cleaner Shrimp

    So I am pretty sure I know the answer to this, I just want some feedback from someone else who has seen it. In my nano I just got a cleaner shrimp a week ago, he usually is all over the place. today I noticed he is gone... as I search the tank I see his antenna sticking out from a small hole...
  7. Koralia Powerheads

    I am looking to grab a Koralia Powerhead for my biocube, Fosters and Smith is having a sale. Does anyone know the difference between these two products? One says the nano is 14.99, and the other says 34.99, same name, different gph??? Anyone have info on this...
  8. Shimmer on an LED camber

    So, I was playing around with my biocube moonlights and I seemed to realize something about the blue LED's. So LEDs emit a very direct light path, unlight flouros, or MH's. If you can utilize this to offset the angle of exposure (twisting the moonlight angle, or LED angle), you can create a...
  9. Oceanic Biocube 14 Setup

    Just did a tank transfer to my new Oceanic Biocube. So far the tank is awesome... First pictures of my aquascape, I think this is my final answer, though I would like to fill in the gap in the center of the tank. Hopefully the featherduster will take care of that. I took out the bioballs...

  11. WTB Frogspawn Frag (1Head)

    I am in search of a cheap Frogspawn Frag for my tank ? Anyone have one they want to cut for $5 ? Would prefer Suffolk Long Island. I was supposed to get this frag from someone and they have not responded for over a week, and I really just want the addition for the tank! Let me know if you...
  12. Snail with coraline algae

    Is it possible to have a snail with coraline algae growing on it ? I have a white snail with a purple color growing on it. I was just wondering if anyone else has seen this
  13. Bleached 10g Freshwater ?

    Heyy, So I entered this hobby because I had to scrap an old tank, I had an accident and I was wondering if I was still able to use the 10g tank. Its a standard PETCO 10g tank with two compact flourescents in it but the catch is... The tank kept growing algae (freshwater), either from...
  14. Lighting Suggestions

    I recently started a saltwater nano. I am using a 12inch T5-8watt flouro light and I am looking to swap it out. Anyone have any suggestions of brands, I would like to have a slight blue color to it compared to the white, and I dont want to lose any juice for my corals. Mainly I have some...
