    Sandbed or No? Give me your opinions

    Kinda wanting someone to play devils advocate here. On my next nano I am trying to decide whether to go bare bottom or sandbed. I know BB is easier to clean but to me a sandbed looks better and with a few nassarious snails cleaning is not a big deal. Try to convince me one way or the other.

I am considering building a 7.5 gallon cube (1 foot square) to make the best of a light fixture I have and wondered if anyone here has done this before and if they had what insight might be offered for this project.

    Any thoughts on the next chat?

    Has anyone given any thought to holding another chat? One thing that may make it more accessable to all would be to hold it on a sunday afternoon so all of the time zones won't be a factor.

    Upgraded pump for a nanocube

    Hi all, I just tried a pump that I haven't heard of anyone using to upgrade my nanocube. I wanted more flow than I was getting from the MiniJet 606 and didn't like the flow I got when I added a second powerhead. I began toying with the idea of trying a MaxiJet when I remembered that I bought...
