So, I went to several fish stores and looked around online and I discovered these “nanocube” systems from a variety of manufacturers that are right in line with what I was looking for. The primary target for these nanocube products is for people who would like small saltwater or marine reef systems, but they will work perfectly for freshwater, as well. Most of them include all the necessary lighting and cooling and a full 3 stage sump system. The system I ended up selecting is the CoraLife BioCube 14. It was previously branded by Oceanic, which, if you aren’t aware, was THE brand name in the custom glass and acrylic aquarium industry. It was the benchmark that all aquariums were measured against. Sadly, the Oceanic brand has all but disappeared now, due to corporate changes the parent company decided to make. Many, if not all, of the expert tank builders that used to work for Oceanic, here in Dallas, went out on their own and formed Deep Sea Aquatics (DSA) which has been successfully earning the old reputation that Oceanic had. If I had unlimited funding, I’d have them build a custom bowfront tank for me, similar to the to fit between my bookshelves in my den.

- Aqua Medic EcoDrift 4.0: I was able to confirm with a number of trustworthy sources that the GE 100% Silicone I Door & Window product was perfectly fine for use below the water line in the aquarium. Again, it is a sealant and not a true adhesive, so do not use it for bonding your own custom aquarium glass joints. It may not be able to withstand the pressure and over time it could leak. I used the GE Silicone I product to seal my custom rock background to the back wall of the BioCube 14. It took just over a day to fully cure. It has bonded really well and looks excellent.Coralife Biocube is an awesome fish tank to experiment with if you lack prior acquaintance with reef tanks. Equipped with excellent decor, minimalist design and enviable features, Coralife has once again proved its mettle. Even though the product costs slightly higher than most of the run-of-the-mill aquariums you’ll find in the market, but that has hardly ever affected the market value of Biocube fish tanks.
