    JMRs 220 Gallong Build (fist reef tank), Feb 9, 2019
  1. John Michael

    This build all started when one day I was on YouTube and came across the 52weeks of reefing from #bulkreefsupply and I got really interested. I’ve have fresh water tanks for years with great success so why not go for a new venture in reefing. I decided to check on Facebook for some reef ready tanks. I said to myself I’ll get something between a 75 gallon- 120 gallon tank. I ended up finding somebody that wanted to sell this tank
    I said that looks like a good size. To later find out it was a 220 gallon tank. OMG....!!!!! Huge tank. I didn’t think much about it intill i saw the daem thing! Did I bite off more then I can chew? The seller was asking for $450 for the tank alone. Seamed like a great deal. After talking to the guy for a few weeks we agreed on $350 bucks for the tank. He just wanted it out of her house.
    I went to the guys house and inspected all the seals and seams looking for anything wrong. Tank was perfect and solid. So brought it home with me.

    Is time to buy or build a stand. I quickly realized that stands are pretty daem expensive and would be better to build one. I’m pretty handy so figured let’s do it. Looked up some plans and measured what I needed and went to the Home Depot.
    I decided to go with 2x6 for extra strength because I want a open front for sump area.
    This area for me should be just as impressive as the tank I want to build.


    And the stand is done and I place where I want it in my house. Since I have a great spot for it. :)

    I layed down a furniture pad I have a bunch of to protect my floor. I’m gonna go buy a foam Matt or something for the top of the stand. Now I just gotta cut out the wood for the inside of the stand so that I can get the tank up on top of the stand and ensure it’s leveled and safe.
    Next week I’m gonna give the tank a good bath and paint the back and bottom of the tank black like I do with all my tanks in my house.
    I have a question: trying to decide on two sump set ups! Please vote and give me some opinions and advice on a good Sump gonna buy it next week.
    These are the two choices
    Bashsea SS48
    With ATO and Refugium To size.

    Or
    Geo SU46R Pro-plus


    What do you guys think?
    I’m leaning towards the Bashsea!
    But like how clean the Geos are!
    Hmmm!

    What do you guys think so far?

    Tristian's Reef: (2019) - 350g Reef Update - Coral Eye Candy!


    Hey everyone I was overdue a reef update. Originally I was going to do one before New Years but life got in the way.

    This year I will be trying to get 1 new video out a week and I will also be doing more ReefTech videos since those were really popular last year.

    Thank You EVERYONE for all the support this past year. Its been an amazing Journey as a youtube creator and fellow reefer. I look forward to creating new original content this year.

  10. BRS how-to Automatic Water changes Video, Sep 30, 2018
  11. RichtheReefer21

    This was shared last week on their YouTube channel. Thought I would share for those who missed it and have considering using the Neptune Apex DOS'ers to do this... as always, BRS makes it straight, simple, and gives great information without a 20 minute video.

    #BulkReefSupply wins again:

    SCA Aquariums for a 150 Steve is a great guy to deal with, and I see a lot of his tanks. I have one. As far as a one-stop shop the guys at #Bulkreefsupply got you-you can call them and give them your card over the phone, and they will help you spend it they never have an issue taking my money and I've never had an issue customer service is great. Skimz has a great line I've been happy with, and I love my Synergy TS-44.

  17. Reefer805

    From day 1 to 5 months! How far I’ve come. Started with a 29 gallon tank from @petsmart and a @fluvalaquatics Aquaclear 110 HOB. Now I’m running a full sump/refugium with reactors! Truly blessed and stoked! #reeftank #reeftankbuild #allmymoneygoestocorals #polyplab #eshopps #sump #bulkreefsupply #marinedepot #timelapse #darkhorsereef

  19. Reefer805

    Another upgrade to add to the Darkhorse Reef. The Bulk Reef Supply dual reactor. Little overkill for a 29dt, but gives me some growing room. I’ll be running 3/4 cup GFO and a 1/2 cup carbon. Well check back in a week to see how the algae holds up. #reeftank #reeftankbuild #bulkreefsupply #reactor #gfo #carbon #darkhorsereef
