Oh yeah, forgot about that lol. I've read things about too much light for a fresh. I never knew exos weren't ff proof, thanks for telling me. I like building my own verts because it's cheaper, and with the right tank, you can either have lots of vert space, horz. space, or both! . I'm loving how my 20 l vert is coming, it's super tall. Sad I had to take the plants ut and air it out though. Hopefully my plants will be ok. I got a 55g at the petco sale, not sure if ill leave it as it is, or vert it for next build. I've got a 100 gallon reef tank that's only got some live rock with some nice corals, maybe I can turn that into something... hmm....Yup, JBJ Biocube 29g - in hind sight i would not recommend unless your going Reef. I setup as Freshwater w plants - its overkill - but I got it for a good price so no harm and I can always chg to reef it I want.
Remember the biocube may have a cool sealed top, but it also has a false back w built in overflow filter area (the old dutch style wet-dry) Not sure I would fancy making it into a viv.
Actually, I dont really like the exo terra either. Too much trouble for make FF proof and glass is thin.. My new vivs are "old School" - They will be verts - Some people may disagree about standard viv vs Exoterra style, but I ll take the bargin Petco.
