The 24 gallon Nano Cube Deluxe includes two 36-watt 50/50 compact fluorescent lamps offering 72 total watts or 3 watts of lighting per gallon. Installed with a splashguard lens for bulb and ballast protection. Energy-saving ballast allows for "flicker-free" starts and dependable long-term performance. Provides maximum light output with the least amount of heat production.
This discreet filtration system is hidden to provide maximum space for your aquarium inhabitants. Sponge filter traps detritus and free-floating particulate matter. Activated carbon bag removes dissolved organics and odors. Ceramic Rings and Bio-Balls provide the ideal environment for beneficial bacteria.
The included submersible pump is rated at 290 gph for water circulation.
Double Fan Cooled Canopy
Heavy-duty ABS canopy can be flipped back and held in place for easy access for cleaning and feeding. Specifically designed for extra heat output with 4 vents and 2 built-in cooling fans to dissipate excess heat. Ensures cooler operation to extend the life of bulbs and ballast. Deluxe Nano Cube features a ventilated reflector.
Installation Instructions: Do NOT allow water contact on any of the electrical components - may cause electrical shock.
Filling the Nano Cube
Always dechlorinate tap water before adding into the aquarium.
Always fill with room temperature water.
Rinse Activated Carbon that is located in the rear filter compartment under the sink for 30 seconds or until water runs clear.
Fill the main body of the Nano Cube until water flows through intake grill into the rear filter chamber. Once the rear filter chamber is full, plug in pump power cord into an approved electrical outlet with a fuse or circuit breaker.
Once pump is on, water will flow from the rear filter chamber through the directional flow nozzle into the main body of the Nano-Cube. Adjust accordingly to desired flow position.
Turning on Your Lighting System (Daytime)
Your Nano-Cube is pre-installed with a dual illumination system that offers daylight and nightlight illumination.
Connecting the Remote Ballast
Connect the (2) male cables from the canopy to the (2) female cables out from the remote ballast. Align the notched groove and insert until you have a secure fit.
Plug power-cord from the remote ballast into an outlet strip that is properly approved and equipped with a fuse or circuit breaker.
Press the switch located on the remote ballast to "ON" position to turn on compact fluorescent lamps (daytime lamps). This will simultaneously start the dual cooling fans integrated in the canopy.
Turning on Your Lighting System (Nite Lite)
The Nano Cube incorporates the Nite-Vu LED that simulates nocturnal cycles with very dim blue light (nightlight) that casts sparkling rays that shimmer for a more natural light cycle commonly found in nature.
Press the switch located on the remote ballast to "OFF" position and press the switch located on top of the canopy hood to "ON" position to turn on the Nite-Vu LED lighting.
The Nite-Vu LED lighting is dim so as to not disturb the night cycles of fish but just bright enough to watch their nocturnal behaviors. The Nite-Vu LED lighting is best seen when surrounding light is turned off in the room.
Nano Cube Maintenance: Always unplug the pump and lighting power cords before performing any maintenance to prevent damage to the equipment.
Rinse out sponge filter (located in the rear of the aquarium) under sink faucet monthly and replace when necessary.
Remove and replace activated carbon bag monthly. New bags should be rinsed under sink faucet before installing into filter compartment.
Replace bulbs annually.
Do NOT clean Ceramic Rings - this may harm beneficial bacteria.
Remove circulation pump located in the rear compartment and rinse impeller motor under sink faucet to dislodge debris and particulate matter.
Remove screws from the splashguard lens and remove compact fluorescent lamp.
Replace with new lamp and install splashguard lens.

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.
