My new tank will be:

Waterbox Peninsula Mini 25 with:
Floss Filter Holder with Maxspect Nano-Tech Bio-Spheres in compartment One.
Compartment Two will have more Maxspect Nano-Tech Bio-Spheres, Aquael Ultra Heater 100w, UV Light - Aquael UniFilter 500 and a hang off the back Bubble Magus QQ1 Skimmer.
Compartment 3 will have Jebao DCS 1200 return Pump.

Scape will be 4x Caribsea Nano Arches and a box of caribsea life rock frag zone.

Lighting will be Kessil A160WE Tuna Blue with Spectral Controller and a gooseneck mount.

The stand (already built and in place) is a Grey Oak style 60cm X 40cm by Aqua One.

So with the exception of the stand just now need to hurry up and wait for the rest to arrive

And now I wait....... For a week or two Just added 30 Maxspect Bio-Spheres to chamber one (more coming for chamber 2), then added a bottle of Colony to help seed the rock and Bio-Spheres Will slowly then sort out my cupboard, cables, labelling plugs, etc ... Will set up the skimmer just before adding fish (along with a jump guard of course)

Been creative today. Made some Zoa colony rocks out of the Caribsea FragZone rocks that I bought, made two Islands and still have lots of rock left over. I think these are great value packs and for only £13 you get a great amount and variety of rocks

This is my 5th marine Tank in approx 12 years and after a 4 year break (had 2x Kent Marine Bio Reefs, a 5 foot tank and then finally a 2 foot cube), having been living here for 6 years and only found out 3 weeks ago that I have one of the UK'S LARGEST CORAL CENTRES ON MY DOORSTEP...... How on earth did I miss that

Almost 3 weeks into my new tank, has fully cycled and the diatoms gone. Now have 2x clowns, cleaner Shrimp, 3x different Zoas and the first of my torches (which looks to be enjoying the tank and the flow). Skimmer is also pulling some gunk . So far so good .... Touch wood!

How are you liking the waterbox? I'm thinking about picking up one, myself.

I think it's amazing. Has been running 2 weeks and 6 days and has cycled and diatoms have been and gone. Is my first ever open top tank and so easy to look after and maintain. Water change takes me less than 10 minutes to do I believe the key to happiness with these is getting a stable level in the rear compartments.......I just use medium size Jewel filter sponge (fine) and a jewel medium sized poly pad on top and my levels stay the same all week.
Sorry for the waffle, but I'd recommend one to anyone

My salty box is now 5 weeks old and coming along nicely. Calcium, Alk and Magnesium getting used up and everything is growing. My reverse space monster has grown 2 babies Candy Canes are puffed up and the flow is fantastic to watch.
Any updates? I just got my WB25 and can’t wait to start it up!
