If this is dirty glass, you're doing a great job!! Love your tank!
LOL thanks. The glass just has saltwater steaks on the outside. I don't get much algae growth on the glass. Only have to run the mag float over it about every 3 weeks. Don't know how I managed that but I'll take it.
I have a biocube 14, for about 2 years now. I've had almost every nano fish imaginable. B/W clown pair, Pink skunk clown pair, convict goby, Mantis shrimp, royal gramma (current resident), Longnose hawkfish, sixline wrasse, and a firefish. I trade in alot. ;D I'll post a pic tonight.

Eshopps nano skimmer
Koralia nano 425 gph (2)
Bare bottom (and loving it) for about 3 months.

Time to Bump This Thread!
My Biocube Update- I'm going to say that an ATO is pretty much mandatory IMO for the Biocube if you plan to run a Tunze Protein Skimmer.
I've had my Cube going for a little while now while I've been waiting for it to do a mini cycle (was previously established before I got it) and although the water evaporation isn't huge, I haven't been able to dial in my Tunze because even a little evap causes the water in the back to drop quickly.
Anyone else have experience with this? I have two JBJ ATO's so one will be installed this weekend, but I don't know how you can get away without one!
Also, one other note: Putting a YWG and Midas Blenny together in a 29 Biocube is definitely not a good idea. They seem to think they are conspecifics apparently :/
Here is my biocube 14, I happen to have this pic 1 year apart:
Sorry pics suck, just iphone 5 photos, tank looks better in person!
Lights are panorama pro 2.0 LED blue/white, blue/magenta with 403 stunner and stock moon lights. JBJ ato (LOVE it) with kalk water, intank media basket with smoothed tray, MP10.
Here is a pink birdsnest 3.5 month growth, I didn't match the size well:
2.5 month growth of blue tip green acro, tried to match sizes:
Neon Polyp True Undata growth:
Again sorry for bad pics, they don't really show color well.
that is a beautiful little tank!
Thanks! I have had lots of fun with it. Aside from a purigen mishap it has been relatively problem free. Water params hold steady and anymore I only check values if something looks "off" . I used to do 3g water change every week, but noticed no difference going to every 2 or 3 weeks and the ato kalk only needs replacement every couple months. I feed every 2 -3 days. It's really quite low maintenance now!
