I strongly considered the IM 120G AIO - since I was going to create a siphonless setup. They were backorder until May 1st week as of February, 2021, unfortunately. I have heard good things about those tanks, similar to what you just mentioned.Innovative marine... aluminum stands, not wood that’ll warp
Yeah they seem like the Amazon of fish-tanks. There are other good players as well. But WB seems really good quality for a comparatively low price point and extremely speedy delivery. No complaints whatsoever - very much in tune with the pulse of current day and age.WATERBOX!!!!! I'M PUTTING TOGETHER MY MARINE X90 as it arrived recently..... LOVE IT!
I considered Planet Aquarium too, since they make an acrylic base for your tank with seems like an appealing concept if you have a sand-bed, which I was gonna. (If I went barebottom on my tank, i would have to pay for marriage counseling, so sand-bed it had to be )Last year we got a 90gal because it was the biggest tank we could fit in the space we had. 10 months later we've moved and have a nice long wall in the living room with plenty of space. So I'm planning the "dream tank", something like a 180. Haven't decided between rimmed vs rimless vs acrylic and am still open to them all. This will probably be the last tank we buy for a long time, and it will be the focal piece of our living room, so I want it to be new and very clean looking. I've compared waterbox, red sea, IM, and Cade for off the shelf package types, and waterbox seems to be the most affordable. The IM is too deep front to back for my space, otherwise looks amazing. Also considering a planet aquarium mega matrix, which is slightly cheaper than the crystal dynamics EL line. Also considering an acrylic from fishtanksdirect just for the weight savings. Getting the tank into place in the house is a serious consideration.
If we buy a waterbox through our LFS we could probably get them to deliver it inside the house.
If we buy from planet aquarium or crystal dynamics we could get an external overflow which would be really nice.
Red SeaLet me preface this by saying that I would like to keep this topic today on the positive side! Remember this is about your most FAVORITE tanks! Thanks!
As hobbyists we love our aquariums. Of course we love our aquariums but I'm actually talking about the actual glass or acrylic box here! We also love to dream up new, better and bigger reef tanks along with smaller, specie specific nanos and everything in between. One thing that all of these have in common is that they all require an aquarium! When it's time to make a decision on a new tank though which one would you go with and why? There are so many great choices on the market today so let's talk about it!
1. For your next "aqua project" what aquarium will you go with and why?
2. Share a brief summary about what you're dreaming up for your next tank project? Is it an upgrade, frag tank, an additional tank, a species type tank or what?

Thank you for that mention KarlieFish. That is high-praise. Now I have to check them out.Without any hesitation I will have my second tank (probably a 120g fish-only) built my Gaston at Tank Me USA. He just delivered my new 365G reef tank to my home last November and I continue to be completely blown-away by the detail craftsmanship. How often can you stare at a an empty tank and be in total awe of its beauty. Tank Me USA without any hesitation!
