I just dont like the way they look..
Not even a little bit.
Anyone else agree?

LOL, I think they look really neat, I'd love to have one.

I set one up and I ended up tearing down my 75 gal and putting everything i have into my cube. all coral switched over and everything. I love them!

Me two. I love cubes. The best ones I think are the ones with a center overflow. That, in the center of a room would be tight. Walking around the tank 360 degrees would be awesome. :thumbsup:

If you think cubes are dumb, check out Oregon Reef. I think you'll change your mind. :D

Okay, I'm sitting here thinking "ice cubes, food cubes, dice?" Then Duh! it hit me! A really big cube would be okay like a 1000 gallon cube.

I think cubes are pretty cool. I'm not a big fan of the pre-made ones, though. They usually lack proper flow and/or skimming and/or lighting.

cubes are sweet, especially huge ones.

I love the cube, I have a Aquapod right now and will be moving up to a custom 93g Cube next year. This way I only have to worry about one MH over the top so it is less expensive to run/replace bulbs and not as much heat transfer like from 2 MH over a standard 90g.

Cubes are awesome!

Hmm... It looks like no one so far is hating cubes!

I just help set up a 33 and think they are great. i would love one

I'm not impressed by smaller cubes, but I love ones 4' and over. I'm planning (just planning) an 8'X8' cube as my next upgrade:)

i dislike the round corners in the front of the display, drives my eyes crazy.

I love cubes! I have been wanting one and just waiting for one to come along.

crickets chriping for natedogg

Personally, I don't like them either. I prefer long tanks. I don't even like the shape of 120s...too "boxy" or box-like for my tastes.

09/22/2006, 07:43 PM
It's not that I don't like them, but I would never own one with the other options out there. I prefer a wider tank with decent front to back depth.


09/22/2006, 07:49 PM
I too love cubes.

09/22/2006, 07:50 PM
yep, I hate em too:

I recently bought a 45g Oceanic Tech series cube (RR). I love it. It only has saltwater in it, and I love it. I can't wait to aquascape. I like the idea of a center island, with corals climbing the top and fish swimming around. Viewing depth (or width I guess) has always been my favorite feature of tanks, as opposed to length.

What do you dislike about the way cubes look?

Good thread! :rolleyes:
