Exclamation need help asap with reef tank

Hello, my Oceanic biocube 29 finally bit the bullet a few days ago. I am now in the market either for a new hood (lights) or a whole new system. I don't have much knowledge in what would be a good tank or not. Evidently the one I currently own is not so great with filtering.I am wanting to go as cheap, but effective as possible. Please leave links, or the specific names of items you have in mind. I am fine to go as small as a 13 gallon tank, but don't want to go bigger than a 30 g. Thanks for your help

Why don't you like your current setup? Did something specific fail on it? Are you keeping any of your current equipment?

Biocubes in general can be good but not with the stock equipment...

I've never heard of a hammerhead or a moon coral?

Sorry for the rude responses.

I would just replace the light if that is all that broke on your tank. They sell lighting for that tank or you can take the lid off and put any light over it you like.

Could you post some pics?
