    Waterbox Cube 20 setup

    Hi guys 🙂 I am about to get my first saltwater aquarium. I have some experience with freshwater and nano freshwater. Because it is my first saltwater I wanted to ask you about my planned setup and if you have any better ideas or additions. Tank Waterbox Cube 20 Equipment AI Prime HD Sicce 1.0 return pump Hydor Koralia Nano 100w heater inTank Media Basket (Carbon, bio balls, filter floss) I don't really know if I need a Skimmer. Some say yes and some no. Planned stocking Carib Sea Arag-Alife Bahamas Oolite Mixed reef Pair of Clowns Lysmata amboinensis Maybe some snails for cleaning Euphyllia glabrescens green tip blastomussa wellsi sarcophyton Thanks in advance for helping me 🙂
  4. Hi all, this has probably been asked a hundred times, but here comes number 101 😉 Simple question: what skimmer to use on a waterbox cube 20? Available options in europe (Belgium) aren't huge, popular ones are: OPTION 1: Comline DOC Skimmer 9001 (DC) (https://www.tunze.com/en/details/9001.000-comlineR-doc-skimmer-9001.html) (will have to modify this one for it to fit, because the magnet won't fit between the baffles of the back chambers, so we'll have to mount the magnet sideways) https://www.nano-reef.com/forums/topic/368761-tunze-9001-im-nuvo-fusion-20/ OPTION 2: Hydor slim skim 135 (https://www.hydor.com/en/slim-skim/) Tight fit, but might work. Have no idea how this compares to the Tunze model... Other than that I don't see a lot of options, maybe the Bubble magus QQ might fit, or the QQ2... But is this a really solid choice? I anyone knows whats best, please let me know! Thanks!!

  10. Review - The product itself is amazing. The stand is sturdy, UV coated, sturdy hinges, great cutouts and just looks super modern. The tank itself also looks very sleek and very well built. Also for a great price. A few cons would be I wish they provided the white AI prime light with the plus version since their stands are white. Also, the stands do not come with directions and they don't have specific directions for the cube 20 stand so someone that isn't handy like me it took a long time. Also customer service are hard to get a hold of, for me both email and voicemail took days to get a reply and you can't get anyone to answer. With that being said I don't regret my purchase I love the product and can't wait to start filling it up with goodies. Build Thread/Stocking Ideas - This is my first fish tank ever, never even owned a beta lol. So i may have a bunch of failures.

I'm probably in the wrong hobby since I don't have patience lol.

    Beginner. New Tank Advice

    Greets all, looking for some guidance. This will be my first saltwater aquarium, I have a small freshwater one. I'm not going to rush it, still learning.🧐 It will be a mixed reef tank. Starting my shopping list - I guess a tank should be at the top right? Looking at 4 models. I know there may be better options than these but it's a matter of cost. I'm in the UK.

    WaterBox 10 Gallon Cube

    Second go at a reef tank, the first being a fair few years ago. Wanted something small for the bedroom so here is my WaterBox 10 gallon cube. Planning on keeping somewhat of a modest mixed reef. The tank was cycled with FritzZyme 9 and seems to be doing really well so far. Keeping up with testing every one or two days. Quality of the tank and filtration design is the best i've seen on any all in one aquarium thus far. Could do with a little help regarding return pump flow for an all in one as sometimes my ATO seems to be kicking in more than it should. Im not sure whether this is down to flow rate of the pump or some restriction through the filtration as different filter medias seem to change the water height in the back chambers when used. (I've noticed this difference between no filtration (obviously), filter floss and the supplied filter sock). Any advice would be appreciated. Thanks in advance.

    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/

    RoxBox 10 365 day challenge tank

    So I’ve decided to join in on the 365 day challenge. I’m mostly a lurker on the forum but have been around a long time. Tried to do the IM 14 peninsula challenge a few years back but had just had twins and man were they a lot of work! 😂 Just couldn’t find the time or energy to keep up with the tank. But they’re almost 4 now and it was actually them wanting a Nemo that got me going in the reefing world again last spring after a long hiatus. Looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun and some really unique tanks and ideas! Below are the quick basics to start. I’ll update thread with my plans as I decide just what I’m doing. 🤔 Specifications Tank Waterbox 10 cube (14.2”W x 13.8”D x 13.8"H) Lighting Aqua Illuminations Prime 16 HD Filtration Intank media rack chamber 1 Bio pure chamber 2 Rock and Sand bare bottom NanoRox Heater Neotherm Flow Undecided Auto Top-Off AutoAqua Smart Micro ATO Undecided on reservoir RO/DI From local LFS Salt Fritz RPM Livestock Fish Inverts Coral MORE TO COME.

    Nano reef lighting and wavemaker

    Hi guys first post here and my first reef tank is in the mail. I had some hardware questions and I was hoping I could get some ideas here. I ordered the waterbox 20 and was hoping to start with clowns and soft corals but I would like to purchase lighting capable of 200+ par for SPS corals at least in the top third of the tank. I also was curious if anyone had suggestions for a wavemaker for a 20 gallon cube that could provide enough flow for some harder corals and an anemone eventually. I've already committed to a very patient approach for my first attempt but ultimately I would like to be able to grow anything that will fit in my tank. I'd like to spend as little as possible obviously but I'm open to higher end products if you think they are worth the price. I appreciate anyone taking time out of their day to offer help!
  16. I recently set up my smallest tank yet, a Waterbox CUBE 10. It was a bit of a forced situation, as I needed a place to house my purpleback pseudochromis while I am in the early stages of my 180 dream tank build. (FTS Updated March 8, 2019) Some may say this is too small a tank for him, but "Pinky", as my daughter calls him (he's not pink, go figure, maybe pinky finger sized?), is a mean and hardy little bastard. He has been the sole fish in my JBJ 29 cube for 4 years, as he killed any other fish that I have tried to pair with him in that tank. He even bites at me when I have to work in the tank! But I need that tank to house other fish so he had to go somewhere... He has been in the WB10 now for about 2 weeks and seems to be doing fine. He is eating well, doesn't seem to be fretting or swimming along the tank sides, but just hangs out in his sand hole or hovers around staring menacingly at anyone he can see and begs for food…quite a character! I probably could have just grabbed a cheap tank and set it up for him, but I rarely do things halfway, so I figured I'd try my hand a smaller nano reef tank with (most) all of the trimmings of a larger tank. I am certainly interested in constructive thoughts and opinions. Please let me know if you have specific questions, or suggestions for improvements. Update July, 2019: Pinky passed away a while back, this tank was fallow for a couple months while I decided what to do with it. Turns out, after I put a Naked Clown and Lighting Clown in my JBJ28 with a Rainbow Anemone, they never really got along. The Naked Clown kept chasing the Lighting around and just generally being a pain. So, when I got back from a recent trip and the Anemone had split, I figured it was a perfect time to move both of them over to the WB10. Thus, now this is Storm's private tank, and the saga continues.

    Waterbox 20 Cube -- Softies

    Picked up a Waterbox 20 Cube this weekend. After looking at several tanks, this was the one my wife liked best, so we went that direction. First wave of purchases being considered: 25 pounds of live sand from Gulf Live Rock 20 pound of premium deco live rock from Gulf Live Rock AI Prime 16HD 1 Oz Clean Chaeto Ebo Jaegar Heater - 150 watt Test Kit (uncertain on brand for cycling and moving forward) Picking up saltwater and RO water from LFS for now Long term, I am wanting this tank to house softies, shrimp, a clean up crew, and a 2-3 small fish. Trying to be patient with the tank and avoiding turbo starts. Rather, I am trying to take the process slow and easy, which is challenging for me. Thoughts and suggestions are welcome. I'm sure I've forgotten several needed items. I have been reading through the forums to learn. I've kept 15 plus tanks (fresh, salt, and reef) over the years, but nothing in the past 12 years. Lighting has really changed over the years.

    Waterbox Cube 10

    Hi to all nano-reefers!!! Some photos of my 10g Waterbox!! System 5 months old.
  19. 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.

    Hunter's Waterbox 40.2

    I finally got my Waterbox delivered yesterday, and I will soon be starting the process of moving the livestock from my 12g HOB system, into this glorious Waterbox 40.2 gallon AIO. I have only had HOB style tanks, and this aquarium will be the biggest system I've owned or maintained. I wanted to go bigger, like 50g-75g with a sump, but felt like I needed to take baby steps with reefing, get to know how pumps and chambers work, and all of the stuff I never had to worry about with HOBs. The biggest reason I got the 40.2 from Waterbox is to minimize as much stress to my livestock as possible. I don't want to have another cycle and risk anything changing. I want to get out of my 12g and into the 40.2 as quickly as possible. Things are doing really well, I am seeing great growth and color, and I just want to give the reef a more space and quality in equipment. I can already tell this Waterbox aquarium is going to be a complete 180 from what I am use to, and it will tremendously improve the quality of life for my livestock! The tank arrived in a wooden box tied to a wooden crate by freight. The driver was super cool and brought the items inside my garage without me even saying a word. By far the best packing job I have ever seen from a company selling glass to customers. They really did a stellar job assuring me this tank was packed responsibly. I mean, if you need a drill to open the box your aquarium comes in, chances are its gonna be ok right?! : ) The tank has been running water overnight for a leak test. When I left for work this morning, everything looked perfect. I will post more pics of the tank outside of the packaging tonight. And I will create a list of the equipment I am running now and what I plan to upgrade to. I am relatively new to the forums. I don't post often or get much attention from anything. This thread is to keep a diary of my new tank for myself, as well as to provide any info for anyone interested in upgrading an existing tank to a bigger one, or who is interested in the Waterbox AIOs. I will do my best to provide all of the specs of both of my tanks, along with pictures and updates , of the steps I take to move my livestock into their new glass world. I am very excited to share this experience with fellow reefers. It had been about 8 months of solid researching before I made this purchase with Waterbox, and now it's time for me to play! Stay tuned!

  22. Raindog's 7g Waterbox AIO!!! LATEST UPDATE (8/27/2019): OK, OK, OK, I know I said this thing was getting dumped out, but there was a turn of events that made us decide otherwise! We went to empty this thing out last weekend and as I started picking at the OBSCENE amount of bubble algae, I noticed something was missing...aiptasia! I don't know how we missed it, other than neglecting this system so bad you couldn't see through the glass (whoops :P) but I failed to notice that at least one of the 2 Berghia egg clutches not only survived...but thrived! They not only cleared the aiptasia from the display, but from the rear chamber as well. Having now realized the glorious achievements of these industrious little slugs...it was clear to me there was only one true coarse of action...revival! So, instead of dumping it out, we scrubbed and picked and scraped as much junk as we could out of this little cube. I then took the larger (more volume, same footprint) Cobalt Mini MJ-606 pump I had saved from my wife's 10g and installed it (this is a huge difference! water actually MOVES through the rear chambers now, amazing!). With everything scrubbed, we performed a 100% water change. Now, we are just over 1 week into the revival...a couple corals survived and we have bolstered the CUC (couldn't really have one cohabiting with Mr. Bambam). If you're feeling froggy, read on a little further where I've added some fresh photos 😉 (7/8/2019): Unfortunately, Bam Bam has passed on. We believe it was simply old age (he was full grown when we rescued him from the LFS just over a year ago). I have been maintaining the system since we discovered his passing, but it honestly looks like it is time to dump this system out. Since there was no way to keep any kind of clean-up crew, this system had become more than overrun with bubble algae and aiptasia. I'll be dumping her out this coming weekend and setting the rock to an RO bath to attempt to remove all the pest algae and anemones. We may or may not refill it and try again in the future, but that decision has yet to be made. Thank you everyone who tagged along on this rather excellent, although short, venture into aquaria! 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!

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! I guess I can get past the logo being etched into the front panel Anyone else have one of these that has any suggestions/tips? Feel free to follow! 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

    G_M's 20 Gallon Nem Garden

    Hey everyone! Im new to this site and nanos in general and figured I would share my progress (hopefully) with you all. A little background about myself, I have been in the SW hobby for a little over five years now and currently have a 75 gallon mixed reef which is quickly becoming SPS dominate and a 40 gallon BTA tank. I have had my eye on the Waterbox AIO tanks for a while now and after seeing some of the builds on here I decided I needed to blow some money and get one for myself! 😉 This will be a new build from the ground up, but I will be moving the livestock from the 40 breeder into it once it has cycled. Equipment Waterbox 20 gallon cube AIO AI Prime HD Stock return pump (will upgrade to sicce down the road) Hydor nano powerhead ATO from 40 gallon Apex Jr from 40 gallon Getting this tread started a little late, but here are a few pictures to get started!....I may have forget to take pictures while I was building the cabinet. I placed an order for 25lbs of live rock from Tamp Bay Saltwater which I am really looking forward to getting. The supplied bioballs are marinating in the the sump of the 75 until the rock arrives. Not too shabby for a DIY stand, need to build the door....eventually amazed by the clarity of the starfire glass. Kicking things off with the good stuff!
