Can someone tell me why the vents in the BioCube 14 lid are basically sealed from underneath the lid (I cannot see how the airflow works in the current setup. I have see some modifications on websites, but those BioCube lids do not look anything like mine.

Hey guys here is my current project that is finally underway. I have a coralife biocube 14 that I have removed the stock lighting and updated it with a kessil a150. I also made a foam rock wall to add more surface area for bacteria since I'm going bare bottom for this one. There are 2 hydor...

I'll add much more to this thread in pictures and text including heater model, pumps and set up, water change frequencies and amounts, inhabitants and what got me to this point, but wanted to start it off with the video of it from two weeks ago (which was week 5). I'll shoot more vids this week...

Hey all! I recently bought a large frag of GSP's two days ago for my biocube 14. It's been up and running for roughly two years. Anyways they haven't opened up since I looked at them in my LFS and they were greatly colored and healthy. I did have to rush acclimate them (let them float in bag for...
