Any input greatly appericated.

The foot print on the JBJ 12 is the same as the Oceaninc 14 which is too big.

I stayed up way too late last night researching.

THe JBJ 6 and the Ocen 8 have the exact same size which will fit on the side table it is going on.

The 8 has dual lights , dual filter intakes ( high and low / JBJ only has one on top) , it is 8.9gallons compared to the 6 of the JBJ. Might be alittle more money but for the added volume without the added size and better equipment seems like the Oceanic is worth the bank for the buck.

But still going to continue the research.....Haste in this hobby makes Fianancal waste in this hobby, Learn that one way too many times with my 100g reef

Just got my BioCube 8. Love it! It looks great, and everything is good quality. Just a few minor mods and it will be perfect!
