there are some pretty significant differences between those 3 tanks...
you'd probably get more responses if you included some info regarding what your needs / wants are specifically.
the 8 gallon ebi goes for under $100.00, and is well suited for a shrimp only/ low light tank (it's a decent breeder tank)
the 8 gallon BioCube goes for around $200...
(and is an excellent nano saltwater tank for the more experienced reef enthusiast, but is certainly also a great freshwater tank)
Give us an idea of what you need help with and I'm sure you'll get lots of opinions.

I might get a 14 galon for 230 retail. What do u think about controlling the flow of the tank? I have read about ball joints in the overdlow. And I'm worried about baby shrimp and Betta getting caught in the intake. What are the thoughts? Maybe this Lfs was cheap but biocube 8 are like 150

That not specific enough. Not trying to be a hater just want to understand the pros and cons of each system. From more "experienced" aquarium enthusiast! Thanks. Lol

Default Re: Biocube-fluval ebi. For planted shrimp tank

ended up buying my 14 gallon Biocube and love it. i am disappointed that i have to replace one of the bulbs right off the bat, and that i might have to buy a smaller water pump for the filter as the water flow rate is to high for my betta and shrimp.

Do any fellow members have any ideas on where i can locate a smaller water pump?
