AIO Recommendations

When I first got back into it a couple years ago, I was just running a 10g nano, which of course grew into our current 30g. I'm running RedSea lighting and am generally pretty happy with the tank, but there are some small things that I'd like to improve, such as filtration, maybe different shape of tank, etc.

The biocube 32 is very interesting to me because the dimensions work, the system seems pretty robust and attractive, and the stand would work well where I currently have my existing tank. However the lighting seems very poor.

Can anyone recommend either a lighting mod, if I were to go biocube, or a better all in one solution that isn't a crazy high price comparatively?
 
BC32, theres a bazillion of them, therefor there is a lot of support on mods like adding a HOB skimmer or lighting retrofits from people who have done it before. I also like that it’s both glass and has curved corners. It’s a great setup. Only struggle is getting good flow for SPS in a cube but that can be overcome.

We have an aeration tube in our little reef tank now that creates good flow for my cloves, I imagine I could do that in a BC32.

I agree with you on the BC32 pros. They're also really inexpensive comparatively.

My tank was given to me, in great condition, by a friend with the stand. But I'm growing to not like the stand (not trusting it). I don't like having an open top either. the evaporation is quite fast, which I'm not opposed to, except I don't have an ATO. And my filter actually got cockeyed the other night while I was sleeping on the couch and starting shooting water over the rim on to the floor. thankfully I was there to fix it within like 5 seconds but it sorta freaked me out, cause if that happened while I was at work my floors would be ruined lol.

the AIO, enclosed system really really interests me if I can get the lighting dialed. I'm about to add a RedSea50 to my existing tank (so I'd have 2 of them) and that's what got me thinking... "if I'm already spending XXX, why not look at a tank upgrade at the same time".
