|oh so you are thinking of freshwater....
Well, Biocube tanks are built for salt water, as they are built in a cube shape and cost a LOT more then a simple fresh water aquarium.
With freshwater you don't have to do waterchanges as often, but still a nice big water change is needed every 3-4 weeks for a smaller tank.
A regular rectangluar 15 gallon works, they are cheaper then a biocube (Biocube is around 500 dolars, more for the supplies).
If you wouldl ike more information or information on animals (my specialty!) blog on my page anytime.
A good website to check out for cost saving items, and if you still think a biocube is best, you can get biocubes for much cheaper: www.drsfosterandsmith.com. You can also get live animals on live aquaria.com. Foster and smith also has deals on fish equipment, as well as filters, you should check it out.
A spare/unused toothbrush is handy for scrubbing algae off the side of the tank, a razor also works even better.
