503reeflands RSR 250 build

Recommended Posts

So ive had this tank up for about 2 months its a read sea reefer 250, previously had a 55gal petco special and while it did its purpose for a year it was leaking just a few drops a day. I wish i really knew how amaizingly smooth these type of tanks are to set up and how stupidly smooth they run. And honestly are cheaper than piecing together a system in the long run and re sell value. Anyways heres a list of equipment its a mixed reef but my sps additction has deffinatly taken over, and my picture skills are not great wish i could figure out how to acuratly display the true colors!

 

tank: rsr 250

lighting: hydra 52, 2 kessil a160we run off apex

return pump:vectra m1

flow: gyre xf130, gyre 1k

skimmer: curve 7

tank controller: apex classic with wxm module, atk, pm1 with salinity probe, breakout box.

 

these pics were right after setting up tank ill post current when later on thanks for following along!

Do you dose at all for the sps, or are water changes keeping them going for now?

I dose seachem fusion 1,2 and acro power. i wish water changes were enough! Lol i am hopfully gonna decide on a triton style sump soon and go that route. I really am kinda annoyed about how limited this sump is! And the socks being an odd size i cut mine to fit but still...! It wont let me upload more pictures i got a few pretty nice ones of my favorite “highend” peices. Didnt relize there was a limit on uploading pictures.

Its ok controller is bulky for the 1k. But  the 130 i got from you is doing awsome i had got the motor block warrenteed recently because the power cable sheilding had cracked and started leaking voltage! i was alerted by my salinty probe haha. I want to get another 130/230 with the new controller to be able to control both from one unit. Wish there was a cheaper option for the apex!
