    Hello. I just purchased a 29 gallon Coralife Biocube. This will be my first reef tank (I do have a 65 gallon lrfo and a 37 gallon seahorse tank). I have read books and other info and from what I have read the plastic balls that come with the tank are not the best media. Any thoughts on what I...
