Oceanic Systems Inc. Oceanic BioCube HQI Aquariums

A Complete System for Saltwater/Reef Environments

Oceanic 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 49.6in

I purchased this tank as an upgrade to my other 10 gallon tank and the transition from that tank to this tank was very simple and easy.

REVIEW
I have had Biocubes before, but this was the first Hqi. The light fan started making a horrible noise within a couple months of owning it, so I had to unplug the fan. Seems to be doing ok without it but I don't know how this will effect the longevity of the lighting over the course of time. The...Read More

Pretty but poor filter design

REVIEW
The tank is really attractive but the filter setup is poorly designed. The back filter area becomes a trap for all kinds of detritus which is very difficult to clean out. Additionally, once the lights are put on it's hard to get to the filters to change them out. Could have been much better designed...Read More

REVIEW
My last reef tank, I built myself. This time around I wanted everything in one with nothing hanging off the sides. There's a plus and minus. My one negative is the compactness of the Biocube and the small spaces u have to work with to get everything installed. However, that's a plus as well. It loo...Read More
