    This is going to be a full blown Aquaforest and Waterbox 135.4 build! Now before we get crazy here, I’m not going full on SPS like I’ve done in the past. I have demonstrated what is possible with Aquaforest full Probiotic Method.

    This time I’d like to highlight what your average everyday reefer can do with a budget and limited time. That’s right, a real world tank that doesn’t cost a fortune and doesn’t need all of your time.

    My choice of tank, salt, supplements, lighting etc... all reflects this theme. Now you might think oh this is gonna be boring... I think not!

    You can definitely see the quality of the selections I made and believe me , everything I’m going to use in this build is quality. It won’t be the most expensive, but your gonna get a great bang for your buck!

    So let’s start with the Tank:

    I went with the Waterbox 135.4

    Reasons why??

    1: bang for your buck!

    2: quality construction !

    3: great size!

    4: included accessories !

    The Waterbox 135.4 to me is a game changer! Great tank at a great price when compared to other Aquariums with similar attributes.

    A hint of things to come! I thought a Little mood lighting would be appropriate!
