  1. Cloudy Biocube

    Beginner Saltwater Aquariums
    After testing the water and noticing the Ph was low, I added some sea buffer to raise it for the past two days, using the recommended dosage. I've also been adding some ammonia detoxifier over the past couple days in order to get the nitrite and nitrate levels down a bit, once again using the...
  2. Everything Dying in Biocube

    Beginner Saltwater Aquariums
    I have a 29 gallon Oceonic Biocube that seems to be a death trap. When the Scooter Blenny died I was thinking starvation, then I fought a Mantis Shrimp for the remains of a healthy Tailspot. At that point I believed the Mantis was the problem so he was removed. Within days the Saddleback...
  3. Stocking a 29 Gallon

    Saltwater Fish
    Hello all. I am new to saltwater and feel a bit confused, I'm hoping to get some advise on stocking. My aquarium has been up and running for a few days with live rock and live sand. I want to be careful about the livestock. My wife has requested that we get a pair of clownish. Is there...
  4. BioCube 29 Lightbar

  6. Is it possible to alter the Biocube Filtration Set Up once it's running?

    Beginner Saltwater Aquariums
    I just filled my tank with water, added live sand and rock and I'm waiting for the cycle to finish but I wanted to know: Is it too late to add a media rack to the back of my tank? I want to purchase one but I'm worried that since I started with the bio balls already i'm stuck with them If it is...

    Hi folks. I'm getting a 29 gallon biocube this weekend and have decided to set it up for marine. I'm SCARED! haha I've been reading and reading, but I want to get a little personal input as well to ease my nerves. I know nothing about marine setups, although I have much experience with...

    Introduce Yourself
    Hi everyone! My name is Sarah, I live in North Dakota and have owned a dog grooming shop for 12 years. I've always loved aquariums and fish since I was very little, and had my first aquarium when I was a kid. I don't recall what was in it, but I remember really enjoying it. I don't think I've...
