    being 25 its hard to get parents to buy anything. its probibly better to not set it up right now anyway. with my 3 year old cruising around the house, who knows what would end up in the water.

    ok, kind of an update-ish thing. im going to break apart my larger rocks ( big enough that i can only fit two in the biocube) and build a custom shelf to fit in the bio-cube perfectly. my only question is if bondo fiberglass reisen will leach anything into the water.

    Not really sure about that. I would stay on the safe side and just use normal reef rock cement, just considering that even if it only leeches out a small amount, we all know that is a big problem for a small tank...
