It is time for me to invest into a Frag tank :).

I decided on a Waterbox AIO 28.2 Frag Tank which arrived very well crated on Friday.

So My Plan are:

Tank: WaterBox All in One 28.2

Controller:
#GHL Profilux 4e

Power Heads:
2 Tunze 6055 which will be controlled by the Profilux 4e controller via the 1-10v port.

Heater:
2 Eheim Jager TruTemp 100 Watts for Redundancy

Skimmer:
Not yet decided

1 GHL Powerbar:
I have a 5.1 but will replace with a Version 6 when they come out in a few weeks

Lighting:
I am using some spare Kessil Lights, which will also be controlled by the Profilux via the 1-10v port.

GHL Maxi Doser:
Which will provide the ATO and the AWC for the Tank.

And talk about small Filter Socks :) (Have to order more of these, thinking 10 would be enough)

How do you like it?
I’m looking into getting one.
Already have an idea of what I’m doing...
I like the shallow reef type

The quality on the tank is very good. It is cycling now without any issues. I ordered a few additional filter socks for it but overall I am happy with it.

I plan to place the #GHL Profilux 4e controller on it and get lights setup and the power head.

Going to be a nice frag tank when done. I will post an updated photo in the morning when it light out :)

@Boydreef - I have this one and a CVU all
In one which is a QT tank. I would pick this one over the CVU for a few reasons.

1- you can replace the filter socks
2- chambers are bigger
3- comes with self leveling mat

If your going to use it as a reef or small nano type tank you will be very happy with it .

Tank is still Cycling, figure nothing will go into it for 5-6 weeks. Which will give me time to installed the controller and the AWC which will be taking water from my reef tanks.

I filled the tank using water from my existing reef tanks.

That is a sleek looking tank.
How is it progressing?
