Rimless 10-19mm Starphire Ultra-Clear™ Beveled Glass

Waterbox uses Starphire Ultra-Clear™ on all panels of the Silver Marine aquariums. This unique glass offers unmatched levels of brightness, color fidelity, clarity and visual excitement.

Full Solid Glass Overflow Box

Our unique glass overflow box provides superior surface skimming and allows the owner to keep their Waterbox completely clean of algae.

Leveling Mat Glued Under Tank

Each Platinum Reef comes with a pre-seated self leveling mat under the glass tank

Dual Adjustable Returns

In order to maximize directional flow, the Waterbox Platinum Series includes dual adjustable return nozzles.

German Silicone Seams

Each Waterbox uses the highest grade black silicone to bond the glass panels.  Once the tank has cured excess silicone is manually trimmed for a clean finish.

Water Etched Glass Overflow Grate

For a clean appearance and ease of cleaning the overflow grate has been etched out of the glass.  This will help eliminate unwanted algae growth.

Water Tested and LED Inspected

In the final stages of production each Waterbox is water tested and inspected with a high intensity LED light to inspect for pinholes, chips, and scratches.


Our engineers have designed a prefabricated proprietary plumbing kit that provides easy installation without any gluing required.
