    ive got a waterbox myself at my office, but just their 10(which is actually 11.5 gallon) AIO, love the quality. wish the back compartments were a tad bigger, but seriously that's my only complaint. Will def be getting one of their larger setups when i upgrade at my house

    Glad I found this thread! Looking great so far! I entered the waterbox giveaway and am hoping for the best ;)

    I've got the Current USA loop system and I think it works great. Grows the SPS I've got just fine :)
    (Don't mind the STN fella on the middle rack, he has been snipped and reglued)

    Ok got a Rock update!

    The STAX rock unboxing!!!

    I have 120lbs of STAX rock what follows is a series of pictures showing first 40lbs, then 80lbs, then 120lbs.

    It gives you an idea what to expect as far as amount and size variation!

    Must say I love this stuff even more in person!!

    Ok this is 40 lbs of STAX by Two Little fishies.

    As you can see on the right the majority is medium sized pieces. On the upper left is small pieces and bottom left are large pieces.

    Next up we have 80lbs this is a lot of rock and most people would probably be satisfied with this amount for a 90 to maybe 120 gallon tank. You could also purchase this amount if your looking for rock diversity and you’ll have lots of options!

    Again on the right are the medium sized pieces, top left small pieces and bottom left Large pieces.

    Last but not least is 120lbs of STAX.

    This is a lot of rock, but if you want to build an over the top aquascape then this is your ticket! You get an enormous amount of rock with tons of diversity! You’ll be able to play with rock work for days, and design that ultimate scape you always wanted!

    To the right is the medium sized pieces, bottom left Large pieces and top left the small pieces.


    On a positive not there was very little rubble in the boxes I received... a few pieces for frags of the future.

    Uhhh not at all... 450, 425, and 525 are all well into the 2k range. The 135.4 is just under 2k. "With" a usable sump!

    I did briefly yesterday. Still deciding if it’s gonna be bare bottom or not.

    That changes things a bit.

    I actually thought about putting the STAX on the back wall... that would be different.

    Imagine taking a flat piece of STAX and using silicone to hold it flat to the back glass.

    It’s a thought!

    I’ve stacked some up in several different configurations and it’s gonna look awesome almost anyway you do it.
