    I like the rockwork !
    I thought the thread title was a joke at first, never heard of waterbox, but man it does look like a contender in the race with RedSea

    Thanks stircrayzy.

    I tossed and turned on which one to get Redsea or Waterbox. So far I love the tank.

    Congrats! I just ordered my 70.3 about 30 mins ago. I'll be using the same sand, not sure what I am doing w/ my rock work tho. I got mine for $120 a month on a 12 month payment. Being able to finance it saved me a lot of headache.

    I have at least a week until mine ships, I was wondering if you think your sump auto top off area could be converted into a refugium?

    I also ordered the gyre 1k and https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B07NSBXLT1/ref=ppx_yo_dt_b_asin_title_o00_s01?ie=UTF8&psc=1

    Regarding the gyre 1k, how is it performing? Can you mount it in the center w/ the back magnet in the overflow area? and finally do you think the gyre pushes enough water to initially get away with it being the only powerhead?

    Thanks so much, and I look forward to more updates.
