Yes nice cube you have there.
I found out an interesting trick with the biocube. If your power head is on the right side like the image below, you can add a underwater salinity meter that will become a detritus trap.
Here's a video of my wrasse stuck in it, you can kind of see some of the detritus that I'm talking about. This is what I collected overnight. After a week it's filled.
Interesting premise... also, I think you just found a very efficient way to capture six line wrasses lol
Personally I think I'd rather just have my filter floss in my media basket trap all the detritus. I just prefer the clean tank look...
Ok, so Im looking to add one more fish to my Biocube 29. So far, I have a Midas Blenny and a pair of Occ Clowns. Must be reef safe.
Any thoughts on a cool add? I have two in mind, but don't want to bias opinions.
I have a little lyretail hawkfish that is super active (all over the tank) and very colorful (red).
Interesting! Is there any concern with its size in a 29g cube (since they can grow to 6")?
I didn't realize they grew that large obviously.....it hasn't grown at all since I've had it....
I just looked up LA recommends minimum tank size of 30 gallons so perhaps it is a slow grower.
Always nice when someone tries to be helpful and gets slammed.
Depending on the lifestyle of the fish a 6" fish could be fine in a 30g, or it may need a 130g. The hawkfish can be kept in a smaller tank because they perch for most of the day, instead of swimming around. I'd recommend a longnose hawkfish because they're the most peaceful.
Sorry, I didn't mean that as an insult, I actually really like the suggestion- I just wasn't sure because of the size whether it would be ok.
no problem, sorry I seemed a little over sensitive in rereading that
