The ultimate reef series biotope!
JBJ launches its MEGA powered 28g Nano-Cube HQI-Reef Series. The new 2007 model incorporates many high-tech features not commonly found in "All-In-One" systems.
The new concept behind the 28g Nano-Cube HQI was inspired by hundreds of reef hobbyists who requested higher powered lighting, protein skimming, increased water circulation, a more simplified filter, storage area in the stand for chillers, and designated water level columns in the rear chambers for heaters, refugiums and protein skimmers.
Our challenge was to offer these key features while still keeping the aesthetic appeal and contemporary look of an integrated canopy and allowing for future mod ability. The 28g Nano-Cube HQI-Reef Series is truly the evolution of years of experience since the original Nano-Cube Aquarium, which launched the small "All-In-One" tank market just 4 years ago.

We are proud to offer the most intense illumination system out of the box, boasting a whopping 5.35W of power per gallon. combined with our new German Parabolic Reflector, it casts sparkling shimmering rays from every corner of the aquarium. Definitely the choice for hobbyists who intend to keep hard corals, sps and clams. The 28g Nano Cube HQI comes equipped with (1) 150W Double Ended HQI/14K for daytime photo periods and (4) Nite-Vu LEDs for nocturnal photo periods. Nite-Vu LEDs are offered with its` own individual power cord for timer usage.
Nite-Vu LEDs are strategically placed on all four corners to evenly distribute moon lighting throughout the aquarium. All LEDs are pre-wired individually with its` own male plug for easy replacement. Consumes less than 1W of power, but strong enough to illuminate nocturnal behaviors.Stay Cool
The secret to our running canopy is our artistic canopy which also serves as a key factor in heat dissipation. All canopies are made from Flame Retardant ABS Plastic. The 4 cooling fans are paired on 2 separate circuits in case one set of fans were to ever lose performance or fail. We`ve even gone one step further as a safety feature and added a thermal protector into the canopy. In the event all fans fail... the thermal protector will automatically shut off the HQI lighting until temperatures reach safe conditions from the excess heat.Easy Feeding
New feeding lid is lighter than the previous full front lid. Grants quick and easy access for feeding and retrieving water samples without lifting the entire hood.
Note: New HQI Canopy and Ballast will be offered as an upgrade lighting kit for existing 24g Nano Cube Deluxe Owners.Smart Filtration
Our newly redesigned filter starts as water enters the center overflow. The water is directed into out new 3-Stage filter media basket, which comes 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.
Once the water leaves the filter basket water is split to the designated heater column to the left and the protein skimmer to the right. Please note that the are that contains the heater, and 3-Stage Filter media basket always has a constant water level. You can easily customize other auxiliary equipment to your aquarium without worrying about water levels in the rear compartment fluctuating. no more broken heaters or heaters that automatically shut off due to evaporation and low water levels.
Once the water is heated and skimmed, the water overflows into the pump water columns. Both pump columns are shared increasing the water volume for long weekends. Water is directed back into the main body of the aquarium via (2) Accela Pumps rated at 266gph at a low energy draw of 16W. Your Nano Cube HQI includes our new Ocean Pulse Duo Wavemaker which creates turbulent currents for a more natural reef environment. Your wavemaker can be set 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.Same Integrated Canopy Appeal
The new 28g Nano Cube HQI offers 3.5" more depth than the previous 24g Nano Cube Deluxe. This larger aquarium grants more space for live rock, corals and fish. We made sure to keep the stylish appearance of an "All-In-One" unit while providing open access into the newly expanded rear filtration compartments. This revolutionary design grants easy access for modifications without the constant hassle of drilling, cutting and working within space constraints due to the canopy.Rear Filtration Access
The rear filtration area is open and grants full access without opening the canopy. This unique baffle design naturally keeps water temperatures more stable through natural evaporation. Chiller inlet and outlet tubes can be fitted easily without the need to cut holes into the rear of the canopy.Stand Tall
The perfect compliment to exhibit your reef aquarium. Our new design stand at 32" high for better viewing. The cabinet stand is offered with (2) removable shelves and is designed to fit a small chiller inside without reducing the air flow required by chillers.Easy Assembly
All stands are very sturdy and simple to assemble. No more cam locks and bolts to mess with.Specifications:
