    I can't find the thread again now, but late last night I read a comment here that said the white Waterbox stands now come black on the inside. Can someone please confirm this for me? Their website definitely shows all white cabinets, interior and exterior.

    I'm ordering a Frag 80.4 through my LFS tomorrow and wanted a white cabinet, but the white outside / black inside would be a turnoff for me.

    I asked during the live YouTube show today and they confirmed white stands are white on outside and now black on inside. So there you have it I wanted mine to ship all white. Guess that's out. I'm bummed but well see how it looks in person.

    I placed an order for a Frag 80.4 and should be delivered early next week. Once it arrives I will take a pic if I get the new updated cabinet.

    Man, that really bums me out. I ordered a white one as well and definitely want it to be all white. Guess I'll find out next week.

    Stumbled upon this video on YouTube showing a 130.4 with the new white / black cabinet.

    I don’t know why they would choose black. That makes it seem darker

    Dang that's ugly. That is a horrible decision. So glad I got mine with a white inside.

    A guy could do that, just irritating to have to DIY a brand new, higher end tank stand. It'll never be as clean as all white from the mfr.

    Oh well, first world problems I guess.

    There’s always
    If this guy can paint his hair, I don't see why we can paint the stand. :D

    I have a white 100.3 coming. That stand color changes seem fine to me. Doesn't look to be any difference when the doors are closed and seems like would be a lot less glare when trying to work in the sump.
