Oceanic BioCube HQI Aquariums

A Complete System for Saltwater/Reef Environments

Biocube HQI offers an aesthetically appealing design and high quality components that make reef-keeping easier and rewarding. The key component is the HQI metal halide light which provides the high intensity lumen output preferred by reef-keeping enthusiasts. Now you can create a thriving coral reef with a broad variety of organisms including small polyp stony (SPS) corals and Tridacna clams.

Healthy reef-keeping also requires proper filtration and Biocube HQI has everything you need including a protein skimmer for removing harmful organic waste, a refugium chamber for establishing biological filtration and a replaceable filter cartridge to eliminate particulate matter.

And don’t forget beauty. Since a thriving coral reef is a beautiful reef, Biocube HQI includes a clear glass canopy for showcasing your aquatic masterpiece. The canopy is easily removed for stocking, water changes, and ongoing maintenance.

Other important features include:
  • Clear glass splash guard surrounding the U.V. shielded metal halide lamp
  • Powerful but quiet fan built into light fixture for active cooling
  • Light housing designed with small thermal vents so heat rises up and away from aquarium
  • Dimensions: 20.8in x 19in x 21in

Comments: I've done a LOT of research on Nanos and the biocube, in my honest opinion, is the best deal by a long shot. The HQI model has every thing you need for the most part to get started and allows room for modifications to improve it's functionality. The system just works and it works very well. I would highly recommend the biocube. Great customer service if something goes wrong!

Comments: I have had my new BioCube up and running now for almost a week. The filtration in the back is great, I put some live rock and cheato back there, with the JBJ nano led light. The lighting is a great upgrade from the older BioCubes, I can now grow a lot more corals! The only concern I have with the tank is that the light produces too much heat, my tank has been up to 82 degrees with having the light on for a few hours, But.... I also live in Texas and its 104 out right now. Overall Its a great tank, and I don't think any modifications need to be made like with the older BioCubes.
