Default JBJ Nanocube mods

In case people here haven't heard about them yet, JBJ has released a new part for the nanocubes. There is a now a surface skimmer attachment for the filter output. It was $10 at my LFS. Now, I no longer get the oily film on top of the water. There are other version of it that you can buy, and ways to make one yourself. A added side benefit is that the water level in the front of the tank stays higher. a down side is that you have to watch the water level in the back of the tank or otherwise you could run dry. The newer models of the cubes comes with this attachment. The main downside I've seen with this is that I've found one of my danios in it and a bunch of shrimp. They haven't been harmed, but you need to pay attention to free them. If nothing else, a good attachment to add for a few minutes every few days and clean that scum off of the surface.

There are also a lot of reef people who do a lot of mods on their cubes. Of course, some of what they do isn't much help to plant people (like adding tons of more lighting)
www.nano-reef.com (has a large DIY group)

A company called NanoCustoms sells a lot of enhancements as well.

The only other mod I've done to the tank is to add a Hydor Flo (http://www.hydor.it/index_en.htm) to the pump output which adds a little wave motion to the tank. It's more important in a SW tank I think, but I like to have a little flow in all directions, plus no vortex around the tank.
