Hutch's 29G Biocube

Just thought I'd share a few pictures of my first SW tank, a 29G Biocube.

Nice pics! I myself will be purchasing a BioCube 29 HQI for my first SW build. What are your thoughts on it so far. Pros and cons?

Thanks,

I'm loving my Biocube. I ditched the stock filter and bio balls. I went with the intank fuge and media rack. I'm running Chemipure and Purigen in the rack with filter floss on top. I love the curved edges on the front of the tank. The clean looks inside the tank with only the return head for the pump being visible.

Down side...I have a ton of plugs lol, but that is with any SW tank.

Plug List:
Acitinic Light
10k Light
LED Moonlights
Pump
Powerhead
Fuge Light
UV Sterilizer
Heater

I've attached a new photo of my clowns and anemone.

About a month. My tank cycled in only two weeks.(Yay) I do weekly water changes to insure the nutrients everything needs, from the water, are present. The anemone is a bulb anemone. They come in a green hue or red. The reds are a bit more expensive but look pretty sweet.

Here is a picture of a red one.

Nice inhabitants. How do you like the Goby? Do you see it much? What's that stuff on your sand and is that normal?

Check out this video about the pistol shrimp, it's amazing!

Either algae or a diatom bloom from too much light. I've been turning my lights on and off manually so the tank has been getting a lot of light lately. Nothing time and some timers wont take care.

Looks like a diatom bloom to me. About a month after I set up my 65g is when I got a big bloom too.
Looks nice though. Are those percs or ocellaris? The one looks like a nice misbar. I love clowns! I have a YWG too :)
