LED lighting is all the craze right now in aquarium illumination. The LED uses very little electricity, puts out very little heat, doesn’t put out harmful UV rays, and the bulbs

last for a very long time.

With this new LED trend in mind, JBJ-USA is about to release their new 28-gallon LED Nano Cube. This new Nano Cube features twenty-five 3 watt 14K LEDs for daytime viewing, four 3 watt actinic/466nm LEDs for dawn and dusk effects, and two 1 watt moon light LEDs. The total wattage for the lighting system is 89 watts and the bulbs have a lifespan of about 50,000 hours. And according to JBJ, the 89 watt

high-intensity LED system provides comparable PAR output to that of their 150 watt HQI canopy system that adorns other 28-gallon Nano Cubes, which is quite impressive. And don’t forget, with LED lighting you can get the same shimmer effect that you would with metal halides.

To keep the system cool, the 28-gallon LED Nano Cube

utilizes an active cooling system that is integrated right into the hood of the aquarium. This system is composed of four fans, an aluminum heat sink, and a thermal protector that will shut down the lighting system if the fans fail for whatever reason. In addition to these

innovations, the LEDs themselves radiate heat upwards, away from the water’s surface.

In addition to the improved lighting and cooling systems of this nano aquarium, the LED Nano Cube also uses two 266 gph (16 watt) return pumps that are operated on an Ocean Pulse Duo wave making device. The overflow for the aquarium is located on the center of the “false” wall and feed a 3-stage filter media basket. In addition

  • Can you add a tunze 9002 to the back compartment to the right of the media chamber?

    • i’m not sure how big the rear compartment is on this aquarium. but even if it is big enough, the nano cube’s lid will be an issue. you might have to cut the lid to accommodate the skimmer cup.

      • No cutting necessary bro: http://shop.mediabaskets.com/Small-Tunze-Cup-Skin

        The reason I ask is because I want to use the media chamber for growing cheato and the auxillary column to put the skimmer in.

        • yeah, i love those collection cups. the standard tunze cup is way too big and i had to cut up the rear tank trim on my nano just to get it to fit.

          have you seen the new biocube hqi? it has a refugium built into the rear chamber and doesn’t have a hood to get in the way. might want to check that one out too.

          • I have the JBJ 28 gallon LED tank on the way to my house, can't wait to check it out!

    Got my LED in two weeks ago. Cycling now. The Tunze is in the middle chamber with a square collection cup. No space in the other chambers. Having a heat problem though. Temps getting to 85!!!! Trying out a small fan. House temp never about 78. Can only think its the heat from the pumps. Really trying to avoid a chiller. Looks great though.
