    Starting a 8gallon BioCube

    Hi guys, I am just getting started a 8 Bio. My clean up crew are in and I can't wait to get some cool looking corals. I'll try to get some pictures going on a bit later, but I got to get myself a good camera. I always enjoy good advices.

    Have a great one

    Congrats on the new tank and Welcome to AquariaCanada!

    Just remember to be patient and not to rush the tank.

    For sure

    Yes, I know, I am eager to get stuff but one of the main things with this hobby is to be patient, so I am dreaming and also getting a list of all the corals I want to get, so when the time comes I will be ready!

    Allright! I finally bought a nice camera to show my tank a bit!! I have to give a special thanks to Redbelly who has provided me with most of my corals!! The torch is the best one!

    Live stock you don't see:
    Blood Shrimp
    Emerald Crab
    Fromia Star
    Couple of snails
    Couple of bleu leg

    Wish list:
    True Perc
    Yellow clown goby
    Neon Green Candy Cane
    Bleu Ricordia
    Bleu Zoos
    Any bleu coral (except sps!)

    Tell me what you think! Other pictures comming up soon.

    Oh and I know I have a small cyano problem, I am trying to fix it with alot of flow and less lighting!

    could just be a normal part of a one month old tank. personally i think you may be going a bit to fast, there are a few delicate species in there.

    other than that i too like the aqua-scaping and have always loved the cube, looking forward to some more pics :b2:

    It does look good but I'd say it might be a little fast as well. I wouldn't add anything for a while now. If your tank has not cycled fully yet the first 3 inhabitants on your list may not make it. Sit back enjoy your tank and give it time to stabilize.

    Ya don't worry guys the fishes won't come in for a while. I will try just to get my existing coral to grow a bit more a wait(which is the secret in this domaine) and then I will maybe start with the yellow clown goby!! But just for the record my tank is about three months old. I know it os still young and wil be careful. I am doing my water changes every week, about 3.5 gallons each times. Maybe what is going next in my tank will be some sorts of Zoos but for the rest I will wait and enjoy the view of my current specimens!!

    Thank you all for the comments and if you have other advices you are always welcome to make them!!
