great tank but lacks in areas
Posted: 11/9/2014 from PHILADELPHIA, PA UNITED STATES
Currently cycling the tank and I have been looking at everything about it top to bottom.
First off the tank is beautiful. Everything is super clean and the layout is great. I stuffed an additional 10 pounds of rubble rock in the back of this thing! The return pump is completely silent which is great seeing as it is literally next to my bed. The lights on this thing are super bright and look like they will do great for my future livestock. So far everything is great.
Now for the not so good. The over flows on the left and right have a little lip on them so it pours out into the included media baskets which is a great idea. Although, the media baskets that come with the tank are super tiny and feel cheap. They float around in the chamber because they do not take up all of the area designated for them. Yes i understand I can buy the upgraded media basket, but I feel like it should have already come with the correct size media basket as this is now pretty much worthless because it will not sit still in the chamber. Secondly it does come with 2 adjustable nozzles, but then they offer the "spin stream" at $30 per nozzel, which I also feel should have come with it for the $400 price tag. Lastly the lights, as I mentioned before the lights seem to be very good but they lack an on off switch. They are on a timer but just for quick on and off to work in the tank or for any reason they need to be shut off they have to be unplugged.
Overall I am pleased with the tank, I just feel like they missed the mark by selling some of the "upgrades" that should just be included items.

Perfect Nano tank

Having used biocubes...this 20 gallon Fusion tank blows them out of the saltwater!
My corals LOVE the 18 watt Skyye led lights...although I wish there was an option to use just actinic lights to make the fluorescent corals pop...but the mix is really nice.
Super easy set up...get rid of the stock media baskets and drop in some chemi pure or chaeto or rock rubble. I swapped the stock 211 gph pump for a cobalt MJ 1200 for a much better flow.
Would buy this tank again in a heartbeat.
