    JBJ 24 gal nano cube deluxe issues... HELP

    A few things I would suggest, first check the tube itself. See if it has a hole in it or is cut. Second, check to see if the tube is secure at the pump. Also, is the water level in that chamber high enough? Is it covering the pump? If not the pump will suck air and that will cause the...

    24 Gal JBJ lighting Nano cube HELP!!!!!!!

    Check the hose itself, maybe it has a hole/cut in it. If not, replace it. if the problem persists after that I would suggest swapping out the pump. I used a maxijet 1200 in my cube without any problems. I did, however have the same thing happen with the hose coming off. Oh my God!!! Good luck!

    Is that an anemone? If so you are asking for trouble. For two reasons... First LTA's are very aggressive and anything it can reach it will sting. Secondly and possibly more importantly if it dies it will certainly take everything in your tank with it. One other thing, anemone need a stable...

    my new 24gal jbj nano

    I upgraded to a maxijet 1200 when I had my 24 NC up and running. I worked very well, just be sure to clean it on a regular basis. Also I agree with peef, without the surface skimmer a thin film-o-gunk will collect on the surface of the water. You do need to be careful, however as all of the...

    updated pic of the 24

    Tank looks really nice, the spray bar is a great idea. My only suggestion would be to paint it black so it doesn't stick out so much. Beautiful tank!!!! Bob

    Jackdad's 24NC

    Nothing really. You would think with all of the anemone to choose from they would host! Instead they just lay on part of my zoo bed!!
