Considering a Red Sea Reefer 350. Does anyone have experience with the reefer line?

Gil&fin might be able to give you some feedback based on her experience. I'd love to have the 450!

Yes! Actually George and I talked Reefer last week. I'm still really pleased with the tank. I love the lines, the quality of the stand, and the sump. My only problem has been with the ATO. I really like that it is designed to fit right above the sump. It is gravity-fed so it is a simple design. The problem is with the float. It has failed a couple of times now which obviously caused some problems. I've ordered a new one so I'm sure alls good. It's a great tank, in my opinion.

 

George--go for it...and post a tank thread!

Bought the 350 and it has been cycling for about two weeks. My only complaint is with the pump I chose, Sicce Silent 4, it is loud. Sound like the hum of a transformer.

I bought the 450. Wow. I'm using a dc pump which is great. Dialing in the overflow isn't as tough as peolpe say.

      Latest Photo dump at end of page 4 from 17apr18...
      Hi everybody and thanks for checking out my thread!  Pictures will get added to the end of this OP as they are added in the thread.  That will hopefully make it easy for future readers to just see the pictures in chronological order.

       
      First step, tear down to the subfloor and put hardy board down and then tile it.  For those wondering about the weight and joist questions in a previous thread, the tank will mostly evenly straddle two engineered joists so no worries.  Big thanks again to @spectra for helping to solve that issue. 


      Gear:
      Return - Jabaeo Sine Wave DC-10000 
      Skimmer - Reef Octopus Classic 200 Internal 8"
      Flow - Unsure, will start with what I have on hand but probably a Gyre XF-270 and whatever else if that's not enough.  I am trying to avoid putting any pumps on the far wall.  We'll see if that's realistic.
      Water Mixing/Changing -  These will be hard plumbed up through the floor of the office and be a permanent fixture in the stand.  Waste line goes back through the floor, across the top of the garage, through the wall and into the storm drain.  What this means is that hopefully I can turn on a small pump upstairs for a few seconds to start the drain siphon, empty the sump and then turn on the pump downstairs to refill it with new saltwater.  How this is going to work is largely dependent on how the sump is configured etc.  The main gist is that water changes are going to be soooooo much easier. 
      edit 28Dec17: RO/DI is permanently installed and is sourcing from upstairs laundry room to downstairs garage mixing station.  

       
      edit 4Jan18: Floor is done. Rockwork is more or less how I want it.  Plumbing is complete.  Tank is being picked up today!
