    Have had a good year this year and the wife says I can upstage my tank! (Hard to pass that offer up!!)
    I am looking hard at the Waterbox tanks but can decide which to get. One of the things I was wanting for my new tank was a sumo as opposed to a canister filter. Is it worth getting one of the pre-plumbed salt tanks that comes with a sump? I really like moving all of the equipment below deck. I was also going to run a separate loop for my CO2 injection.
    This is the fresh water:
    Clear 4820 plus 72gl

    And this is the salt:
    Frag plus 80gl with sump.

    I am also trying to decide if I want to take their stock lights, or go an find my own. They ain’t giving these things away, but they sure are purty!
    What do y’all think??
    Thanks!

    I know if I restarted I would seroisly consider a sump.The benefit of cleaning the filter and just to run your co2 on a separate pump and easely switch or change things in your setup if you want to keep your tank clean of gear..

    I decided to go with the Waterbox 130.4.
    This thing is going to be a beast! Now I just need to find the right lights and a good reactor!
