Just wanted to Share my 4 gallon Waterbox.  Been running since September. So far so good

That's so pretty!  Did you have the same issue with finding a pump that fits?

You guys mind if I ask which light you’re using for the 4 gallon? I got a 4 gallon for my brother but don’t know which light to use.

I don't have the 4 gallon but I do have a pico.  I'm using the Asta Lumini, it's ok.  I would suggest the Hipergaro light which can be gotten for about $60 on Amazon and I think is a better light than the one I've got (am thinking of switching to it).  It's flexible enough that it could be used with a larger tank eventually, up to maybe 10-15 gallons, depending on what you're growing.

Cool, I was looking at that light on amazon and the reviews look promising. You think it would be good on a 15 also? I have the 15 and won my brother the 4 from the waterbox Facebook page.

I'm not positive on the 15, as I don't know the spread of the light.  I suspect you may need 2 to grow more than softies, but I am not sure.  I'd do some searching and see what the biggest tanks are that people have used the light on and what they grew.

I’m planing on keeping mostly zoas so that would probably work for it. My AI Prime is out of commision and AI said they can fix it for a price but I’d need to send it in first.

What is everyone's solution to the sump being glass and equipment being partially visible? Or is it not that noticeable?

It is not "that" noticeable, but I can imagine it will bother some reefers, especially the ones looking for a clean look. I'll see if I can take a picture later today, to show what is visible and what not.

 

Since it does bother me a bit, I'll be adding some Green Star Polyps (Pachyclavularia Violacea), with high hopes of it covering the backplate of the display.

I didn’t set mine up yet. I plan on making diy media baskets. I will use black acrylic on the backs of the media baskets that bump up against the back wall of the aquarium.

I have the waterbox 10 and they sent me a matt for under the tank that is too small for the tank. I called to let them know and they say thats how they designed it. Their customer service was not helpful or pleasant.

Yes their mats are a bit smaller than the tank that’s how they designed it, supposed to center under the tank that the front panel didn’t need it.
