Greetings from Canada, my name is Shaun and I’m a reefer from South Africa - I’ve just moved to Canada and what better way to settle into a new life than with a new tank. Am I right? Haha.

My previous two tanks have both been shallow reefs (700x700x300mm and 1400x700x300mm) - I have been obsessed with aquascaping shallow tanks ever since I started research for my first build. As I don’t know any custom builders here in Canada, I have decided to go the route of a Waterbox Frag 145.5 tank, it’s slightly deeper than my previous builds but at 410mm it’s still what I would consider shallow for such a long tank.

I’m really excited to to start this build and get a little slice of the ocean back into my home.

Equipment List:

Tank:
Waterbox Frag 145.5 (1536 x 643 x 410mm)
Lights: Ecotech Radion Gen 5 Pros.
Flow: Ecotech MP40s
Return: Ecotech Vectra L2
Skimmer: Reef Octopus Elite 200S
Nutrient Control: Pax Bellum ARID N18 Algae Reactor.
Controller: Coralvue Hydros
Doser: GHL Doser 2.1 SA
ATO: Tunze
RODI: Puratech Deluxe 100
Supplements: Aquaforest

More to come when the ship arrives. Haha.

Greetings fellow Canadian! I was just in South Africa a couple of years ago for a month, had the best time of my life! Fantastic photos and tank, welcome!
Greetings! I’m glad you had a good time there, South Africa is a great place. Thanks for the welcome.
Welcome to R2R Shaun! Beautiful shots! Show us more if you could, and perhaps even a full tank shot with an aquascape we can admire!
Thanks. I’ll post some more photos of my older builds for sure. And then new photos as things progress.
Hey Shaun! Very nice to see you here. Canada is fantastic. Can't wait to go there next winter as well. As you know I was following all your previous builds. This one will be EPIC I'm sure as well! ;Woot
