After a series of misadventures with my previous 75 gallon tank, and buying a used tank that turned out to be a poor decision, I decided to bite the bullet and just buy a waterbox. Unfortunately it showed up with a misdrilled cabinet end. So I have a tank sitting on my floor and a 3/4 assembled cabinet. I will say waterbox's customer service is quick to respond.

Ha! Same here, 7725 arrived 2 weeks ago and the same end panel was wrongly drilled. Some holes fitted but many did not. Also waiting for the new panel :). Looks like a whole batch went wrong. Indeed, great customer service.

Not sure if I feel bad for the other people in my situation or happy to know I'm not the only one haha.

Well did you receive a panel that worked? My replacement is messed up exactly the same as the first one. A little disappointing they shipped the panel separately they could have atleast checked it.

Interesting your model has extra wooden dowels in it mine didn't. Is that 4 wooden dowels on that side?
Yep and no surprise they don't belong. Almost none of the fasteners or dowels actually line up with a hole. I'm not sure if they used the wrong jig at the factory or what, but it comes from China so im guessing if they're all that way im waiting for another shipment.

I received it yesterday but haven’t tried yet because my tank was mounted and I need three strong guys to move it.

I also have a 7225 in March. The nightmare for me was: the first 2 shipments, all the sump and ATO units inside the crate broke!, the display tanks were all scratched up to hell. I had to request replacement twice and change delivery carrier on the third shipment to get a perfect display and sump. Good Luck with your build.
