For those who have a Biocube 8

Post by Dr.Bio on Fri May 29, 2009 3:45 pm

Hello All

I was wondering who else out there has a Biocube 8 gallon reef going. I have had mine running for almost a year and a half and am pleased to say it is doing very well. I have noticed a number of enthusiasts voicing their dissatisfaction with these small tanks, mainly due to algae overgrowth and overall poor results with livestock health. I too went through the learning phase but I can assure anyone out there with a Biocube 8 that you can have a healthy, vibrant reef ecosystem.

Currently I keep a Yellow Watchmen Goby, Pom-pom anemone crab, Feather duster worm, Alveopora, Green Metalic and Purple Mushrooms, Zooanthids, GSP, Hammer Coral, Orange Recorida and an Orange Fungia. The tank is maintained by 6 BL hermits and 3 generic turbo snails. I hope to have some pictures up soon.

It seems the key to these tanks is the use of Phosphate absorbing media. I place a small bag of this media in the drip tray under the spill over from the filter cartridge. This combined with good quality live rock has resulted in a very stable system.

Does anyone else have any experience with these?
