    Jim's 28g JBJ Bio Cube

    Hi all,

    I don't share too much on here normally lately, but I've been meaning to post a few things about my "Keep it simple" Bio cube.... for about a year now. Lol



    I love this little tank! I hardly do anything to it. I do a 5 gallon water change twice a month. No dosing or anything like that. It is lit by an AI Sol Blue LED fixture, has a small (OLD) air stone powered Aqua Medic skimmer in the back chamber, and the two small return pumps were swapped out (I don't trust anything JBJ electrically) for two Sicce nano's. It also has a Tunze Osmolator Nano auto top off because I'm lazy and like to do as little daily maintenance as humanly possible. The ATO is fed from a 5 gallon rimless cube that is stored under the stand.

    The tank has all of the fish in it that I plan to add to it, even one that I didn't plan on adding... lol

    1- Green Wolf Eel
    1- Red Bar Hawkfish
    1- Sm Purple Tang

    The Purple Tang was not a planned addition. We had him come in to the store the size of a dime, and he wasn't in good shape. Took him home and the rest is history. He has grown considerably, and gets along with the other two A-holes who reside in the tank. I wanted a couple fish with a ton of personality, and I certainly got that... You can't walk into the room without them freaking out, wanting to know how much you're going to feed them today.



    I wanted to keep the tank full of easy corals that I just get to sit back and enjoy. I've always been very fond of Duncan's (can you tell?) as well as bubble corals. The Elegance corals were a later addition, but have worked out wonderfully. Plenty of zoanthids, as well as some of my favorite leathers in there too. I also have a very cool pair of Strawberry Crabs that call this tank home as well.

    Hope you all enjoy it!

    Not sure what happened to the picture quality, but I'm working on fixing it.

    Seriously, do they look clear? They looked like poop on my computer after I uploaded them. I had updates that needed installed.

    It actually looks great. You can see everybody in there is really happy. Nice work. I've always through bubble corals were tough to keep. Maybe I'll reconsider them

    I have killed mine off 3 or 4 times and it has come back. Don't ever pull them, if you think they have died....
