JBJ 6 Gallon Nano Cube LED Aquarium Information

Product Manuals & Documentation

The Ultimate Desktop Biotope! JBJ is pleased to announce the next generation of nano-cubes to our ever growing list of JBJ Aquarium Products. The newest models reflect the same classic nano cube look that has proven successful for almost a decade a now but has been combined with more efficient technology. Most notably these new next-gen nano cubes have replaced the hot power compact bulbs that necessitate annual to bi-annual replacement with a cool running, long lasting, low power consumption LED lighting system. JBJ continues to prove that small things really do come in small packages. Whether you are a novice aquarist trying his or her hand at their first freshwater aquarium or an advanced marine aquarist looking to add a nano-reed to your desk, JBJ has the right tank for you.

Advanced Features:

6 Gallon Glass Cube
Still in place in the next generation nano-cubes are the patented curved glass, which allow for a unique and dynamic panoramic view of your aquarium and all of its inhabitants.

Integrated 3-Stage Filtration:

Being an all inclusive biotopic system for aquatic denizens the nano-cube has discreetly hidden in the rear of the tank a small yet powerful and effective 3 stage filtration chamber system. The first chamber includes an intake with a protective screen, the second chamber is empty and can be utilized with the included filter media or any other media you see fit. The third chamber consists of a quiet and efficient 106 GPH return pump which directs water back into the display area of the nano-cube via a directional nozzle. Filter media included with your nano cube;
  • Mechanical/Biological - Sponge filter which will trap detritus and particulate matter. Sponges are also often a breeding ground for beneficial in-fauna like copepods as well as denitrifying bacteria.
  • Chemical - Activated Carbon is included, which aids in absorbing organic and chemical compounds such as medication from the water.
*Biological - Ceramic Rings and Plastic Bio-Media is also included, these too serve as breeding grounds for beneficial bacteria that assist in breaking down harmful organics such as ammonia and nitrites.


Despite utilizing the much cooler running LED lighting system, the next generation Nano Cubes still include (2) 50x50mm cooling fans within the canopy to aid in cooling and aeration of the electrical equipment in the canopy to prevent damage via humidity build up.

JBJ LED Flip Top Canopy and LED lighting system

While only concealing 6 LED`s of approximately 1.3 watts each (3: 10,000k and 3: 20,000k). These high intensity LED diodes put out three times the amount of an equivalent power compact fluorescent system (with the assist of an integrated reflector) while still remaining cool to the touch. This means less evaporation, and less chance for a catastrophic salinity change if utilizing the nano cube for brackish or marine tanks. The canopy still houses built in cooling fans that draw air out of the canopy to assist in dealing with heat generated by the tanks, as well as managing moisture. The LED`s are not only more efficient but cost saving as well, utilizing an electronic ballast and a lifespan of 50,000 hours before diminishing in output compared to about 3,000 hours with a power compact system.

Approximate PAR readings for the 6 Gallon LED:

340 at 2"
165 at 6"

Comments: Customer Service stood by their word and price matched another online sites deal and then added 10% of the difference off! I saved $60.00 plus the free shipping and no tax. Shipped quickly, well packed, no problems to the tank except the small pump started to make grinding noises and didn't work so well after one day. I called customer service, the gentleman walked me thru some trouble shooting...found out that the impeller was broken. So they are sending me a replacement.I do wish there was room for a nano protein skimmer, I may have to rig a small HOB type skimmer somehow.I want to start up a small seahorse tank, and while this may not be tall enough for the bigger horses, it should be just fine for a few dwarf seahorses, sexy shrimp, sea grass, and a few non stinging type corals. The LED lighting has a decidedly blue cast to it, but it should make the right corals pop. My only problem with this, is that it's only a 12 gal tank(small enough for my desk) and I'm already thinking of putting way too much in it. It's going to be hard to keep it simple ;)I can't wait until it cycles and I'm off to the races!

Great Nano Tank

Comments: There is not many details of this tank around so I will tell you the main things you need to know. The lights and fan come on with one button and no lunar lights. The led has the equivalent of 144 watts intensity output and pump is rated to 148gph. Tank is built very well and has lots of room in the back for maintenance . If you want to buy a tank with good(decent) lighting this is it. It is not the most powerful of the nano LED systems but bang for buck this is it. The lighting in this tank can support any soft and lps corals and some easy sps. The only thing I didn't like about this tank is the led lighting configuration, it is too blue (3x10k, 5x20k). It would have been better the other way with 5x10k and 3x20k. For the ones that want to do serious sps in this tank, I recommend putting in another Led strip to increase the lighting. After everything I still give it 5 stars because it is a very well built tank and has enough lighting for what i need it for.
