Anyone replace the noisy fan with something good? Coralife sent me a replacement fan. It was nice and quiet for two days and now it's back to that annoying grinding sound. I just want to get a nice and quiet fan in there and be done with it!

I would recommend either just disconnecting it... Or get a Steve's LED retrofit kit for your BC32... $300 very well spent! :)

A number of people have replaced the fans with I believe Vanatec 12v computer fans. I believe the correct diameter is 60mm x 25mm depth, but you should do a quick google search before committing.

I got this one:

Easy install and much quieter.

Sorry, the dimensions I quoted were for the 29g biocube. The 32g probably has the 50mm fans as mentioned above.
