  1. Hello all! I'm new to this forum. I've been part of the aquarium hobby since childhood. I've been wanting to set up a nano for my wife and it be something she can call all her own. This will be a great learning experience for her. My plan is to set up two Waterbox cube 10's next to each other. One fresh planted and the other a reef. Coincidence that I received an email from CoralVue as I was in my planning stages. Just for fun, I decided to enter the contest. Theme: The Tree of Life.🌱 The following list will be updated as I add/remove/replace items. Equipment: Waterbox Cube 10. AI Prime 16HD with 12" Flex Arm. Eheim Heater 50 Watt. Finnex Max 300 Heater Controller. Sicce Micra Plus Return Pump. Sicce Voyager Nano 2000 Wavemaker. XP Aqua Duetto ATO. DIY Screen Top with Neat Aquatics Frame Corners. Kraken Reef 2" Filter Floss Cup. Flipper Nano. Filtration: 8.5 lbs. Live Rock. Brightwell Aquatics MicroBacter Lattice. Filter Floss. Red Sea Reef Spec Carbon. (When Necessary) Kent Marine Phosphate Sponge. (When Necessary) Salt Mix: Red Sea Salt. Testing: Elos- Nitrate. Salifert- Calcium, Magnesium. Hanna- Alkalinity, Phosphate. Milwaukee Refractometer- Salinity Seneye- Par. Additives: FritzZyme 460. Purple Non Sulfur Bacteria. (PNSB) Live Phytoplankton. Red Sea Reef Energy Plus AB+. Red Sea Trace Colors ABCD. BRS 2-Part Calcium / Alkalinity / Magnesium. Livestock: Blue Leg Hermit Crabs. Astraea Snails. Copepods. Coral: Zoanthids. Duncan. Briareum. Green Star Polyps. Hammer. Clove polyps. I am starting this tank as a bare bottom but may decide to add sand at a later date. The 3 gallon planted tank next to the cube 10 will eventually be converted over to another cube 10.
  2. Waterbox Cube 7 - Mixed Nano Reef WHY A NEW TANK?! Alright, here we go! My much awaited Waterbox 7 is all ready to get into its cycling phase. My BioCube 16 LED will be a year old next month. It has gone through 2 significant transitions and the tank is doing great (thanks to many folks on this forum who have always been helping and providing wonderful guidance). As the corals are outgrowing, I usually give them to my local reefer buddies or give them to my local LFS for some store credit. It was not long ago, I thought it would be awesome if I had another tank (a small one considering the space factor) just to move a few corals from my current setup and ensure that there is no unseen warfare in the tank and someone eventually giving up. So as I was browsing through for a potential fit, I stumbled onto a great offer for the Waterbox Cube 7 at Saltwater Aquariums, and given I had some credits from some of my previous purchases, it did not take my more than 15 min to decide and go for it! It is indeed exciting to know that now I have one more tank where I can do everything right that I did wrong when I started with my BioCube 🙂 Experience teaches you many things, and this being a hobby that warrants continuous learning - one more tank, why not! Let's do it! WATERBOX CUBE 7 FEATURES ◕ Glass Thickness: 5 mm ◕ Tank Length: 11.8" ◕ Tank Width: 12.2" ◕ Tank Height: 11.8" ◕ Total Volume (Gal): 6.8 Ga TANK HIGH LEVEL CHARACTERISTICS ⇨ Aquascape : 4.5 lb. of Live Rock ⇨ Sand : 10 lb. of CaribSea Hawaiian Black Arag-Alive! Live Reef Sand ⇨ Heater : Cobalt Aquatics Neo-Therm Heater, 25 Watt ⇨ Lighting : AI Prime HD+ ⇨ Powerhead : Hydor Koralia Nano 240 ⇨ Pump : AquaTop NP-80 ⇨ Skimmer : Reef Glass (it tucks in perfectly in the second chamber) ⇨ Screen: DIY Screen Kit SUMP DETAILS Chamber 1 In the first chamber, there is the InTank Media Basket (very compact and enough space for a filter floss, little Carbon and Phosguard) Chamber 2 This chamber houses my heater and skimmer. Good enough space for the Neo-Therm heater to be one side and the Reef Glass skimmer to be on the other. Chamber 3 This has the return pump and the ATO inlet. Here are some pics of the setup. I'm still playing with the aquascape. Should have it ready tomorrow and then I shall pics 🙂Livestock additions will follow once I'm through with cycling! Can't wait to see how the colors of the coral pop with the contrast of the Black sand bed.

    Mintys WaterBox Cube 10

    FTS 14 June 2020 FTS 04 June 2020 Tank Established: 26 May 2020 Equipment List Tank - WaterBox Cube 10 Return Pump - Eheim CompactOn 600 (turned down to around 2/3) Heater - 50W Ehiem ThermoControl Fan/Cooler - TBD Temp Controller - InkBird ITC-308 with plastic probe Lighting - AI Prime 16 HD on 12" flex arm Flow Pump - Jebao OW-10. Sine Wave, 4/8 power. Dosing Pump - TBD ATO - Tunze Nano 3152 Mechanical Filtration - Filter floss in 3D printed holder Chemical Filtration - Purigen Biological Filtration - bag of Seachem Matrix Substrate - CaribSea Aragonite Reef Sand Hardscape - CaribSea South Seas Base Rock Lid - TBD (custom lid would be nice, but the shipping cost from the US is almost as much as the lid for me.) Livestock List Fish 2x Ocellaris Clownfish (Carl and Ellie). Long term I might move these to a larger tank and get a smaller goby or blenny. We're fairly limited in the nano fish range here. Inverts 2x banded trochus snails 2x astrea snails (Mufasa and Scar) Small hitchhiker feather worm in blastos Coral Several Varieties of zoas. Green Hammer Blue frogspawn/octospawn Purple + Orange Lobophyllia Purple + Green Blastomussa (I think merletti, very small polyps) Elegance Coral Long term Coral wish list Due to the limited room in the tank, I went in with a fairly clear idea of exactly what I wanted to stock the tank with. There is a little bit of wiggle room of course but this is 90% of what I want. Gold Hammer Pink Hammer or Frogspawn 2-3 acan lord varieties Yellow Leather Red Monti Cap 1-2 stick sps, still undecided on exactly what I want. There are a few nice millipora around but I'm not sure if I trust myself with them in a Nano. More Zoas? If there's room, Ricordea florida. But I think I would rather have acans over these.

    Waterbox Cube10 return pump size.

    So the pump that was shipped out with my Cube10 didn't fit (zzz). And was looking at picking up either an eheim compactON 300 or 600. Specs of the pumps are as follows: Eheim compactON 300 Pump power per hour at 50 Hz of 170L (45g) Pump power per hour at 50 Hz to 300L (79g) Eheim compactON 600 Pump power per hour at 50 Hz of 250L (66g) Pump power per hour at 50 Hz to 600L (158g) The main differences I can think of is the bigger pump would draw more water through chemical/biological filtration, whereas the smaller would allow more random flow from a wave maker. So is more water through the chemical/mechanical filtration worth having slightly less random flow within the tank? Or is it just preference.

    norbert's waterbox 10

    I added a clown to this tank a couple days ago so I decided to start a journal today! I previously had a 29 gallon nano for a couple years before converting that to a freshwater planted tank. I had never had a freshwater tank before (other than a small tank with a single betta) so I wanted to try something new. After a few months I decided I wanted to get back into nano reefing so I bought a waterbox 10 cube and an AI Prime HD. Equipment is the waterbox and ai prime, stock pump with carbon and filter floss, hydor koralia 425 gph pump, and 7-8 pounds of rock from my old tank that I bleached before adding. No sand so cleaning is easier and I can do whatever I want with flow. It's just the clown for now, although I hope to add another fish and a mix of different corals. Livestock suggestions are always appreciated! Here's the tank as of 7/12/19, any tips for taking decent tank pics would also be great: And here's a blurry pic of the clown: My only question for now is about the cloudy water, it's especially noticeable around the rocks with the light on (the picture is pretty close to how it looks in person). I just turned the light on for the first time yesterday so I don't know how long it's been like this. Is it just a normal bacteria bloom?
  6. I recently asked for help choosing between making my next tank a nuvo fusion 10 with budget lighting or a fluval evo 13.5. After a few more weeks of thinking I've decided that I'm really not very impressed by the stock lighting on the evo and I don't want to waste money replacing it at some point, even though I like the extra volume. However, I'm still not much closer to making a decision because I'm now also considering the waterbox 10 cube plus bundle that comes with an AI Prime HD. Basically my choice is between a fusion 10 with either the aqua knight/hipargero or possibly a par38 for lighting, which would each be about $160 USD, and the waterbox bundle which comes with the tank and prime/gooseneck for $300 USD. This will be a mixed reef that is probably more lps than anything else, although I definitely do want some sps too. I know the prime is a great light but given that this is a budget build, is the extra cost worth it? Thanks in advance for your help!
