So far an amazing experience. Ordered, shipped within 2 days and received it today after another 3 days.
Packing was perfect and very safe.
Little tricky to put the cabinet together but we made it. Super sturdy and really high quality.
Tank will be put on tomorrow. Peninsula 7225

So amazing! How are you feeling about the build quality of the stand? Definitely a big fan of @Waterbox Aquariums.
Looking forward to seeing the progress!
I had other tanks including ELOS but this one beats them all.
Very sturdy and high quality. Just a little tricky to put it together as the manual lets you guess a couple things instead of explaining it but we managed within 1 hour

I had that experience with the manual as well. The peninsula tank is on my dream builds list. I wanna knock out a wall between my family room and the deck, custom build a stand and add a WB 7225. How are you running all the power and what not to the place you have the tank?

@Waterbox Aquariums hire me as a business analyst so I can collect some good customer feedback on improvements and make them! Lol :) My selfish plug for needing another tank

We are not in a rush to get water in the tank. Once the tank is on the stand we will take out time and decide what the best way is to get power to the tank. We have several options just not sure which route we will go.
Will post pics once we get that started

Congrats on the new build. I just ordered mine in white. Hoping it doesn't take the 6 weeks to get shipped out.
and congrats to you. They had the black one in stock so it went quite quick.
You will be happy. It is a beast but a true beauty

Some more progress today...
Always hated to have all my electrical equipment like LED controllers, APEX and all the power cords in one small cabinet. No matter how much you try it always ends up in a mess.
Tried this out by putting a cabinet on the overflow side just for electrical stuff and actually looks pretty good to me. The cabinet aligns perfectly with the top of the tank and looks close to one unit.
Still have to drill holes in it for all the wiring but you get an idea...
and add doors :)
