Hello everyone,

I'm considering getting a waterbox aquarium and currently struggling between the kind of tank to get.

Looking for opinions here and suggestions from anyone that has either one.

Marine X:
47.2"×19.7"×21.7"
105.3 gals - total volume

Reef 100.3
35.4"×23.6"×21.7"
102.4 gals - total volume

Would you recommend going with a longer tank?

Does the 4 inch depth outweigh the length that I'm losing ?

I had the same debate. There is a $500 difference in Canada so I said no and went with the 90.3 vs. the 100.3. The Marine X 110 gets you 4' and space undedr the stand for gear, but I just didn't not have the 4' of room.

Did you end up going with 90.3 or 100? I think the 3ft would look better in the space that I have but wasn’t sure if I went 3ft that would limit the fish selection.

I went with the 90.3 because of space limitations. The 4' would be better if you have the room. Only thing it really eliminates in my opinion that I have always had are a few Tangs. My previous tank was a 220 so I would never put a single tang of any species in a 3' tank. Just my opinions though, others will have a different one.
 

If Reefing was a school what letter grade do you think you would be making?
