Hey cube fans, this is my waterbox 20g build thread. It's going to be a fishless tank... corals and cuc only.

Basic equipment list:
1. WB 20 cube
2. AI 16 HD
3. Real reef rock
4. Caribsea live special grade
5. Aqualight ATO
6. Sicce voyager nano 1000l
7. Tunze 9001 nano skimmer
8. Inkbird temp controller & eheim 75w heater
9. DIY stand (WB copy)
10. DIY lid

A few upgrades... so far:
1. Sicce silent 1.0 return pump
2. Intank media basket
3. Intank sump cover

I'll be doing a fishlles cycling as well, with a combo use of prodibio nano start and Brightwell start XLM. A few frags have been sitting in my QT tank since mid January, waiting for the cube to cycle.

Pics to follow...
