So, I was so happy with my little aqua top, before it went downhill i knew i want a bigger tank. So i had upgrade to a Waterbox 50.3 from Living Reef Orlando. This one should hold me over a few years and plan on taking it a little slower than my i did with my aqua top. I did 90% of the order through texting. Here was the teaser photo that I had received from Ann with on her empolyees showing of my purchase that I made on April 29th, 2022.

I upgraded to the WB 50.3 after I chipped my JBJ 45. I think it’s a great size tank for compromise between display size and easy management. Hope you like yours too.

I had 2 Nero 3 power heads, one on each side basically facing each other. Unfortunately both died on me and I went back to cheaper ones. I actually have 4 running now with 2 per side for lots of flow. I started with just one but added more as I added coral
