Quick Answer about Biocube needed: Fish may depend on it!
I currently have a 14g Biocube that's housing my barbs (as read in my signature). We found the biocube by the dumpster, and so we tested it's watertightness. It held just fine, so we took it. Now, we've noticed it's missing the pump, tubes, carbon pack, and plastic bottom for below the pump. So far, the fish have all been active and happy, but we've learned that we have to have six of EVERY KIND of barb, not six BARBS, so we CLEARLY need more barbs...But it's not happening in a 14 gal biocube. We thought of trading the 33 and the biocube, putting the saltwater tank over in the biocube (watching of course the damsel's behaviour) since the blenny eats prepared seaweed and algae anyway, but I'm concerned about doing a swap when there is no pump.
Does anyone know if it is SAFE to use a biocube as a saltwater tank without it's pump? Should we just scrap the biocube and get a tank kit? What's the best thing to do?
