Nano Cube aquarium featuring energy-efficient LED technology
High-intensity LEDs support low-medium light aquarium corals
27W LED aquarium with smart filtration allows easy refugium conversion
Enhance the Nano Cube experience with energy-efficient LED aquarium lighting. JBJ 28g Nano Cube LED Intermediate employs brilliant, high-intensity LEDs (light emitting diodes) for functional light that supports the growth of photosynthetic organisms. Cool-running LEDs reduce operating costs and unwanted heat transfer while delivering PAR (Photosynthetically Active Radiation) levels that accommodate mid to low light corals!
Individual power cords for 14K daylight and 456nm Nite-Vu moonlights allow 24 hour aquarium illumination you can control. High-intensity LED system delivers the beautiful shimmering of metal halides and the broad coverage of T-5 lighting for advanced aquarium illumination. Eco-friendly LED lighting with an impressive 50,000 hour lifespan means greater savings for you by lowering operating cost and virtually eliminating the cost of annual bulb/lamp replacement.
Loaded with hobby-friendly features, the 28g Nano Cube LED Intermediate is a smart choice for new or experienced reef aquarists.
Glass aquarium with rounded corners lets you enjoy seamless panoramic views.
Two 266 gph Accela powerheads with directional flow nozzles controlled by the Ocean Pulse Duo alternating wavemaker.
Redesigned Ocean Pulse Duo wavemaker lets you create turbulent currents for a more natural reef environment. Newly incorporated memory chip ensures flawless performance even after a power failure.
Built-in filtration system employs an innovative 3-stage filter media basket. Includes a mechanical sponge, activated carbon and biological ceramic rings.
For the experienced reef-keeper, the transparent compartmentalized Filter Media Basket can be used as an in-tank refugium for a natural approach to reef keeping. Simply add macro-algae such as chaetomorpha in lieu of the mechanical sponge and biological ceramic rings.
Cooling fans automatically turn on/off with the main lighting system. Efficient aluminum heat sink quickly dissipates heat while built-in thermal protector automatically shuts of the lighting system in the event the fans fail.

JBJ introduces the newest innovation for the popular 28g Nano Cube Series. Our new LED illumination system employed in the 28g Nano Cube LED Intermediate model accommodates mid to low light corals. Our LED lighting delivers the power of halides and the broad coverage of T5 lighting with over 10x the lifespan. It requires less energy consumption, is cool running and offers beautiful shimmering while being eco-friendly.
High intensity LED lighting offers the ability to dramatically increase PAR (Photosynthetically Active Radiation) which designates the spectral range from 400-700 nanometers for the growth of photosynthetic organisms while lowering energy input.
24 Hour Light Cycles
Our new canopy offers around the clock illumination all powered by individual power cords.
Time to Change Lamps?
Impressive 50,000-hour lifespan with a 30% reduction in output. You won't need to change lamps for at least 10 years*
*Based on 10 hours a day
Going Green Safely
LEDs do not produce any ultra-violet radiation that is harmful for living organisms and do not contain any toxic mercury that is harmful for the environment. These solid-state components are extremely durable and prevent accidental lamp breakage through handling associated with fluorescents. Consuming less energy puts less greenhouse gas emissions into our surroundings.
Since LEDs turn on to full brightness without having to warm up, you can instantly light up your aquariums without the wait. These revolutionary diodes radiate heat upwards and away from the water to reduce unwanted heat transfer that can be detrimental for aquarium livestock.
Integrated Cooling System
The secret to our cool running top is our artistic canopy which houses an efficient aluminum heat sink for fast heat dissipation. All canopies are made from Flame Retardant ABS Plastic. The cooling fans automatically turn on/off with the main lighting system. A thermal protector is also added to automatically shut off the lighting system in the event the fans fail, it will automatically turn back on once temperatures reach safe conditions.
New feeding lid is lighter than the previous full front lid. It grants quick and easy access for feeding and retrieving water samples without lifting the entire hood.
The filter starts as water enters the center overflow. The water is directed into our 3-Stage Filter Media Basket, which is installed with a mechanical sponge, chemical activated carbon, and biological ceramic rings.
Our unique 3-Stage Filter Media Basket can host a variety of chemical medias to suit your needs. Cleaning is especially easy, since all you have to do is lift up on the basket handle and watch the water drain out the bottom for a simple and dry filter change. All baskets have a sliding door for added convenience,
Nothing to Hide
Our newly redesigned filter basket is now transparent for easy refugium conversions. Simply add macro algae (e.g. Chaetomorpha) into chamber one and chamber two. We recommend leaving the activated carbon in chamber three with a small piece of the mechanical sponge before the water exits to prevent algae clogging pumps.
Creating Motions in Captive Oceans
Our redesigned Ocean Pulse Duo now incorporates a memory chip for flawless performance after a power failure.
Your wavemaker creates turbulent currents for a more natural reef environment. You can set it from 10 seconds to 6 minute alternating cycles. Water is returned via (2) directional return nozzles on each side of the center overflow for even natural currents.
Whether you're establishing your first aquarium, or expanding your hobby experience with a new niche system, small aquariums in the 12-gallon range make a rewarding and relaxing project at home or in the office.
All home reef aquariums are miniature reefs when compared to expansive natural reefs. However, the term "nano reef" generally refers to a miniature reef system that is typically 30 gallons or less. Is a nano reef right for you?
Smaller aquariums in the range of 10-20 gallons are the ideal size for the serious beginner. When stocking your small aquarium, think scale: a community of tiny, active, and colorful tropical fish can make even the smallest setup appear grand.
Don't take the quality of your tap water for granted. If you draw your water from a well, nature may not be providing you the perfect balance. If you are using tap water from your municipal department, it likely includes minerals and additives.
