    Waterbox Nano Cube 7

    Hey guys, this will be my first saltwater tank so I figured I'd document everything as I go. So far I've only kept planted freshwater tanks, so this is going to be a bit of a journey for me. Equipment so far: >Waterbox Nano Cube 7 >10 lbs Nature's Ocean Aragonite Sand >8 lbs Aquacultured Rock >50 watt Elive Heater >Fluval Marine Nano Bluetooth LED >Chemi-Pure Blue Nano Planned equipment: > Hydor Pico Evo Mag >Glass cover for display area of tank (I'm going with glass because I have 4 cats that seem to think screens are for chewing/scratching apart. I'm also going to get two pieces of glass I can swap out for easy cleaning) >DIY controller using Reef-Pi for ATO, temperature control, and possibly as a wavemaker for the Hydor pump For now the tank is cycling, and I'm just patiently waiting for my ammonia and nitrites to disappear. I was planning on buying pre-mixed saltwater from a LFS I've previously used for freshwater stuff. I finally got in my refractometer calibration solution, however, and it looks like their water has pretty low salinity. They said it was around 1.023, but I've just tested it at 1.021! For now I'm topping off with saltwater to slowly raise my salinity, but I'm going to check out a saltwater-only store that's just 5 minutes away and hopefully I can get better pre-mixed water. If not, it looks like I'll be mixing my own. I'm not worried about having to mix it, but I was hoping to avoid it because my tank is so small.

    An adventure: Waterbox 10

    Hello everyone, I recently joined the forum to educate myself on nano reef keeping as I venture on my own adventure. I am a college student at Penn State and I understand that a small tank will require much more care than the larger tanks, but I figured given my situation, a nano tank would be the best choice. So, after weeks of careful planning I finally got myself a 10 gallon Waterbox cube along a AI Prime HD from Saltwateraquarium.com. I went to a local fish store and got about 10 pounds of Caribsea Life Rock Shapes, saltwater and off I go to set up my tank. Current equipment in this tank is the following: Tank: Waterbox cube 10 gallon Lights: AI Prime HD Heater: Cobalt Neo-Therm Heater 50w Return pump: Stock pump Skimmer: Hydor Slim-Skim Nano Protein Skimmer (Fits like a glove!) Refugium light: Innovative Marine ChaetoMax 2-n-1 Refugium LED Future equipment potentially includes (Need input from you guys): Circulation pump: IceCap 1K Gyre Generating Flow Pump ATO/AWC: AutoAqua Smart AWC Touch The first chamber of the back will house filter floss media for mechanical filtration and a small refugion with chaeto and ceramic media for bilogical filtration. The second chamber will hold the skimmer and some more ceramic media. The third chamber holds the heater and return pump. There is no sand in this tank since I intend to have strong water movement and will make it easier to clean. As of the time writing this post, the tank is in the third fourth day of cycling with no lights. Livestock that requires feeding will be added next year, until then, some input on the livestock would be awesome. What would you guys put in it? The plans for this tank is to eventually incorporate some sps corals. I am some time away from that, so in the meantime I am learning as much as I can. I am not an expert on reef keeping, but I am determined to experience and learn, hopefully not the hard way. I do not expect this to be an easy adventure, but surely will be fun.

    Waterbox Nano Owner's Thread

    Howdy y'all! I believe I may be one of the first to adopt one of these gorgeous little Starfire beauties and I figured it would be a good time to start a thread for anyone else who may/has purchase(d) one! So far, Waterbox has been very responsive in dealing with the only issue I have run into so far [with the 7g model], the included return pump. They did so by sending me a free Sicce Mi Mouse return pump to replace the ECO66 pump, this may or may not be the case with other tank sizes in the series. I don't think any of us can argue that these AIO cubes are very attractive considering the quality of materials, construction, and included accessories! So, without further ado, please join in on the conversation! Is it just another AIO? Do you have one? What do you think? Are you some weird-o lizard person impersonating a reefer?!?!?! Here is the manufacturer page for reference: https://waterboxaquariums.com/cube/

    WaterBox 4g SPS Pico

    So with being out of the hobby for a year or two I finally decided to dive back in to give myself something to do in my down time. I began assembling equipment for a 60g cube but gathering everything I wanted for the build was taking to long and the itch was getting to me. When I came across these small AIO tanks from WaterBox I just couldn't resist. The main inspiration for this tank came from seeing a video of Battlebox corals and then when I saw the AutoAqua Smart AWC the idea popped into my head. Build Plan Equipment 4g WaterBox Cube AI Prime HD w/ Gooseneck 25w Neo-Therm Heater MP10QD AutoAqua Smart AWC Livestock: Clown Goby - Not sure which exact species I will go with. Citron is what I am really wanting, just depends on availability. CUC - One small blue leg hermit and a couple snails at max. Macro algae - Since having a refugium isn't really possible with this build I am going to look at getting some to have in the display. Corals - Various SPS nothing in stone so far. Going to try out a BattleBox and then get what I can from lfs around me. So no telling what I'll end up with at the moment. Rock - Purchased some dry reef saver rock for this build but also have some cured pukani in case I can't get a scape I like. To get things started with this tank I am going to give Fritz 9 NItrifying Bacteria a shot and maybe find the smallest bottle of pods I can find. Algae Barn will probably be my go to for the pods and macro once the tank gets water in it. The Automatic Water Changer from AutoAqua is the key to my plan for this tank. The only other filtration will be biological and some Chemi-pure blue. Excited to get this tank set up and running. I'm gonna have to play around with the AWC and find what I will be able to do, since the return chamber is so small I will have to either do extremely small amounts or set up a timer to turn shut the return pump off and allow the AWC to run. The goal will be to accomplish 100% water changes every week at the least. This should handle any nutrient issues with such a small bio-load and most likely keep major and minor elements in a decent range. I plan to test this and see how things go and if the water changes alone can't keep up I am considering using Kalkwasser or try Red Sea Coral Pro salt since it has elevated levels to begin with. If you made it this far. Thanks for reading all my thoughts and rambling. Let me know what you think and if you have any recommendations on adjustments. Also if you have any recommendations on corals or any good livestock ideas I would really appreciate it.
  6. I’m seriously considering upgrading my current Red Sea Reefer Nano(18x18x18, 21 gal display). the two replacement options are the Reefer 250 (35x21x20, 54 GAL display) and the waterbox 70 (24x24x22; 47 gal display). The demensions of the waterbox would allow me to use my currrent NanoBox Duo light without any supplementation and would allow more depth for aquascaping. The Reefer would allow for increased length and increased sump space, but would require an additional light purchase. All other equipment from my current aquarium could be used on either tank for the short term at least.

    Raindog's 7g Waterbox

    Raindog's 7g Waterbox AIO!!! The current plan is to get through the cycle and probably stock with a RBTA in the coming months and a pair of Porcelain Anemone crabs to host in it. Strike that, found a Gonodactylus smithii! And Lord knows there will be some zoas too! Part List: Waterbox 7g AIO w/ ECO66 pump (included) Sicce MiMouse Pump (provided by Waterbox) Cobalt Mini-MJ 404 pumpHydor Koralia Nano 240 Cobalt Neo-Therm 25wKessil A80 w/ GooseneckMini Smart Plug (my $10 lighting controller, with wifi!) Mechanical Timer (also $10, and apparently smarter...since it actually works!) ~10 lbs Haitian Live Rock10+ lbs of Nature's Ocean No.0 Live SandTropic Marin Salt *Original Post: So...this happened! I got to see these in person at RAP, and I got sold! The absolute quality and attention to detail for the cost is mind blowing!

Hoping to order the light soon :3 *EDIT: I got a call from Saltwateraquarium.com, there is/was an issue with the 4g. So, they are upgrading me to a 7g gallon for free...shipped out for a Friday delivery!!! I was really looking forward to the tiny 4g, but 7g is still pretty small and should work out for my desk
