    I saw this in the LFS last night and it looks great. You would be shocked at the incredible number of posts on the web about how to modify or customize the old Biocube. Most people with Biocubes have made a long list of expensive mods to their system. It seems Oceanic listened to what people did and have now incorporated all the best mods into the new system off-the-shelf.

    Popular mods that are now part of the new BC 29 HQI:
    Chamber 2 is now a built-in fuge instead of a bioball repository.
    Built in Fan instead of your own clip on fan
    Optional glass cover
    150 watt 14K HQI (will take 10K or 20K bulb)
    Clear glass on back instead of scrape off paint
    Built in skimmer
    Extra circulation pump and UV sterilizer

    Its about $500 without stand

    With the old BC29 and all your mods it started to look like a science experiment. The new one looks quite nice.

    It looks and sounds nice. You thinking of getting one yourself? It may be worth the $500.

    If only you knew how much I spent making mine do what this does!
