just perfect

Comments: This is by far the smallest self contained tank. Its easy to set up and everything worked on it. The pump is super quiet as well. You will need to replace some screws in the back of the lid with some stainless but other than that its perfect. It will fit anywhere! For the money id say this is the best purchase ever for a tank. The leds are amazing!

Another good idea gone bad

Comments: With high hopes for the Cubey from JBJ I expected this to be the one. The idea is great but unfortunately like many JBJ products before it, they failed in the execution. The PLASTIC latches that hood pivots on snapped cleared off due to it's own weight. The tanks lighting was rendered useless in about 5 minutes upon unboxing. A shame really. Cutting corners for the sake of costs. This could have been a good design if it wasn't flimsy plastic.

Nice Little AIO

Reviewers Rating Excellent!

Comments: This little JBJ Cubey is great for anyone whose looking for a fully functioning AIO pico. The rear chambers are simple. The first fits just about any heater; the second comes with some sort of media "rack" that allows you run mechanical and chemical filtration and maybe even a refugium, time will tell. The third chamber houses the 60 GPH return pump. In terms of design, the Cubey is fine. The only significant problem is that there are two intakes for the rear chambers, one near the bottom of the tank and one about one inch from the surface of the water level. This means it's impossible for the intake to skim the surface. The LED light closely ressembles 14K light when all LEDs are turned on and should be more than enough for LPS and softies. Overall happy with the purchase and looking forward to continuing this tank.

Comments: I expected much more with this tank. It's a bit of a disappointment. I was expecting a high end Elos style tank for $100, but I also wasn't expecting something this cheap. The tank itself is not bad, though there were some blemishes on the finishing touches (poor paint on the plastic, etc). The most disappointing thing is the hood. It's made from very cheap and flimsy plastic. The lid does not close properly. The LED enclosure inside the hood is not sealed. Finally, there is not independent power cords for each LED set. This makes it impossible to run your moonlights on a separate timer.There are a few positives. The tank looks pretty slick, the LEDs add a nice shimmer effect (they are a little spotty though) and they seem to be powerful enough for easier SPS though I haven't verified this with a PAR meter yet.The flow with the stock pump is decent and would work for corals that don't need high flow. All in all, I was torn between this and the Innovative Marine 4G nano. If I had it to do over, I would have gone with the Innovative Marine.
