Recommended Posts

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.

      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!

      Edit 8Jan18:

      Hello,
       
      I have a band new still in the box, complete Red Sea Reefer 250 and a used Bubble Magus skimmer for sale. I'm asking $1100 for everything. The complete set comes with tank, stand, refugium, plumbing, ATO and more. The color is black. You can find the specs here at http://www.redseafish.com/aquarium-systems/reefer/. The reason for selling it is because I got the "ok" from the "boss" to build a custom aquarium that I have been dreaming about for a long time. I'm pricing this below MSRP because I would like to move it fast. If you have any questions feel free to IM me. Happy reefing cheers.

      I spent 20 mins typing a tank thread then my web browser crashed and I lost it, so here is my new one. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
       
      Anyway this tank is a Red Sea Reefer Nano. Its a pretty good tank that is pre-drilled with a sump. The display is 21 gallon 18 inches cubed, with something like an 8 gallon sump for 29 gallon total volume. I go to university at OSU and don't have tones of money to throw at it but its doing pretty good about a year in.
       
      Besides the tank nothing else is too fancy. Lighting is the Marine Orbit Pro LED, thinking about adding a 2 bulb T5 to supplement it and get some different colors. An Aquamaxx Skimmer, 175 GPD RODI, Cheap Powerhead return pump all that jazz. Things I would like to add in the future, the T5's or maybe another or different LED setup. Maybe a Calcium Reactor if I start keeping more SPS, I already have a CO2 tank from past planted freshwater tanks. I have also thought about turning a canister filter into a GFO chamber. Possibly adding dosing equipment again if I get into a heavier stock of corals. Also an Auto Top off because adding two mason jars of water a day get annoying. Anyway here is what I have in my tank and then some Pictures at the end!
