i would have bought Waterbox in a heartbeat if they were easier to get in Canada. Unless you ship to the boarder and go pick up, or you arrange the shipping yourself they are tough.

many advantages though... better sump designs, all glass overflow teeth, better plumbing for us Canadians, Star-fire glass, generally more room in the stands.

i got a great deal on the 170 that i wouldnt pass up even if it were offered to me again today, and i do like them despite feeling like Waterbox outclasses them. Waterboxes also do cost a little more for comparable red sea sizes.

Did some more stuff over the last few weeks and got the tank filled. Begun cycle using the brightwell Microbacter products so wish me luck.



little equipment hub since the stand of the 170 doesn't offer up a whole bunch of real estate. there's a second grille in the bottom, and a fan running for air circulation when the stool is closed. space below the panel for power bricks and a few controllers i didn't want inside the stand.

That rum and coke is probably your most important piece of equipment

How is your cycle going? I started mine on April 27th with Brightwell XLM Start and Quikcycl and still have ammonia and nitrite. I'm also using Caribsea liferock and bare bottom.

Nice and tidy little build, loving it! Does the equipment hub double as an ottoman?
