find 28 gallon cube

i wanted the 28 gallon cube, doesn't have to be rimless, and now i cannot find any do you still make it ? i actually had one in sight just 2 months ago, but it sold out.
Asked by: christi
We do not make a 28 cube, we make a 25 frameless cube, and a 27 framed cube. We make a 28 Curve or Euro. Maybe this is why you are having a problem finding it? We still make all three of these. The 28 curve is available with stand, etc, through Petsmart. The others would be available through local fish stores. BREX

Can I put a Canopy and T5 light fixture on top of a 93Cube

I have a 93Cube rimless. I have ordered a canopy to sit on top of it. I also want to put a ATI T5 fixture that is 18 LBS of additional weight (besides the canopy weight). Will the glass aquarium be OK with it? What is the recommended weight that can be supported.
Asked by: LeoLeo
If the light will sit on the rim of the tank, it should be ok. We don’t test our tanks for what weight can rest on them. If the light will rest on the canopy, I wouldn’t advise that. You may want to consider hanging it above the tank if it can’t sit on the tank. BREX

Solid, flat stand for a 25-gallon cube

Hello, I just bought a new Marineland 25-gallon frameless cube tank and glass top. I would like to use a stand I have that's solid wood, perfectly flat, but doesn't have an open top where the tank rests. Is that acceptable? Should I use thin foam under the tank on that stand? Thanks for your help with this.
Asked by: MkeFish
No foam, but as for the stand, I would need to see a picture. If it is a manufactured aquarium stand of the proper dimensions it should be fine. If it is just a piece of furniture, we do not recommend it since even strong furniture may not properly support the pressure points of an aquarium. Please email a picture to us, and put For BREX in the subject line. I'll take a look, and confer with an engineer if need be. BREX

Micro Bubbles in silicone seam

Recently purchased your 60 gallon frame-less/rim-less cube w/ corner overflow and noticed there are clusters of micro-bubbles in the silicone seams in the top corners spanning down about an 1.5" from the rim/lip where the panes of glass are mated. In some areas, almost as wide as the 3/8" pane itself. Now, if this was a framed or braced tank; I wouldn't worry too much about it, but seeing how its frame-less; 60 gallons is a lot of water... Is this something to be concerned with? Research seems to show 50/50, which is a gamble I really do not want to take.

We would need to see pictures of the tank in order to assess the situation properly. Please email some to us. BREX

Set-up recommendations

I have the 60gals tank and want to set it up correctly. What kind of sump do you recommend? I was looking at the RS-75, is this a good fit? Also, any advice on water pump and plumbing set up? I am also thinking about getting the Aquaillumination Hydra 52. Is this a good fit or would the Hydra 26 be enough to sustain a reef environment? Lastly, what do you recommend for skimmer? Thank you for your time in advance.
Asked by: Fez1979
As we do not test other companie's products on our tanks, I cannot properly answer your questions regarding the RS-75 or the Hydra 52. As for a skimmer, we would recommend the Seaclone 100. BREX

Stand top

I have a frameless 93 cube. Your stands are too short for my needs and thus I need to have custom furniture made to ensure the tank is at the proper height. Your stands all appear to be open top but this is not ideal in my situation. I assume the bottom piece of glass is floated higher then the edges and thus the sides take all the weight? So if I go closed top for the stand (like you used to make) I should be fine so long as I do not put any foam correct? I am not worried about the warranty as I will be drilling the side of the tank for a custom overflow as is but am unsure about the bottom support.
Asked by: Soulpatch
The bottom glass floats inside the vertical glass, but it is built flush at the bottom. A solid top stand would be fine for this tank, but the perimeter support still needs to be there from the tank to the floor. No foam should be needed as long as the stand is flat and level. As you noted, there is no warranty on this tank, once it is drilled. BREX

Reef Ready Plumbing

I have the 60g frameless cube and have been searching the forums for help getting it started. The consensus is that the Mainland durso corner overflow will be loud with anything over 300 gph flow, why does mainland recommend 750 gph? I was also given the tip to make the drain 1.25" after it leaves the bulkhead to prevent flushing. Any advice on this? Also can you send me Marinelands plumbing instructions for this tank? Thank you.
Asked by: Drummond
I can confirm what BREX notes: the only significant noise (and salt creep) comes from the siphon break hole in the return. (And without it, no, you won't drain your *whole* tank; just down to the level where your return is positioned. That may or may not overflow your sump.)

Yes, we still make it. Item # NV33011. This is a non-CornerFlo version. If you are looking for the Corner-Flo version, we did discontinue that one. You may have to have the LFS special order the NV33011 if they don’t carry it in inventory. BREX
