I have a modest following on Instagram: @Hardy_Reef detailing the progress of my Red Sea Reefer 350 and figured I should document a build thread on Reef2Reef.

I have a New Years resolution to keep my tank chemistry as stable as possible to allow my corals to thrive. They are doing fine now with good growth and color and want to keep it that way. However, depending on the test kit I use I'm getting different results so not sure exactly what the 'now'...
Astro's 250 Reefer Mixed Reef Tank
Hey all! I am a new reefer and member of this forum from Canada!
I started the hobby with a Fluval 32.5g tank, but after a month in I decided to upgrade to a Red Sea Reefer 250.
With a new tank comes a new build thread, and here it is!
There goes some pictures and videos of my tank that I call "Pedras Secas" - my favorite dive site.
Mixed Reef, built in december 2018
Size: 40 x 24 x 18 in
Lights: 2 AI Primes HD + 1 Hydra 64
Circulation: Glamorca + MP40

For sale 30 kgs of AF Aquaforest Rock taken out of my tank. As you can see it is really nice and different shapes as opposed to normal reef rock.
Bottom of pieces is flat for good appearance on your sand or bare bottom tank.
Selling because of tank tear down.

Hi everyone, I'm sure this has been answered numerous times but I can't find a comparison thread with these 2 specific tests.
Hanna is out of my price range before you ask ;)
I see that a lot of people get zero readings on their Salifert kits, hopefully that means their actual levels are close...
Hello Everyone! ;Happy
I can't believe I finally have a chance to begin a fresh build thread for our latest reef project. This year started just crazy and affected all our projects for this cycle, but we are working to adjust to the #newnormal and progress. Finally, we are ready to share with...
I don't like all of the plastic that comes with the Aquaforest Balling kits and my wife has been pushing our household to use less plastic container so i want to start mixing my own using the original Tropic Marin powders. Technically they should both be the same chemicals, so do i need a...
I want to know how to dose The Dry calcium from AF (make my own water to be dosed)
I saw on youtube on the balling method, that you should add 50 grams of Dry Calcium to 1 liter with RODI water.
They dont mention how much ml you should dose to a certain Tank size, and how much will...
I realise all batches of AF salt are all slightly different and I wandering how others manage this in conjunction with dosing equal amounts of Components 1,2,3?
Take the following as an example ...
I am in the process of balancing my ions, dosing equal of the 3 comps, with a little...

Hi all, Had an amazing experience visiting Aquaforest in Poland last month.
Just wanted to share some photos of my trip there. The facility is about 45 minutes away from Krakow by car.
This guy really draws the eyes
The tank is really huge. Pictures don't do it justice because...
My name is Spike. This is the story of reef keeping with a jet setter lifestyle.
EPISODE I: The story begins with keeping a reef while traveling heavily, and leaning on an enthusiastic partner and plenty of technology to ensure operation while I'm away three days every week.

Good day @Perry @Aquaforest @120reefkeeper @Anirban @sever10
If you could please pass this on or if you know the answer.
Question: Why should I not use Reef salt for auto water changes? I do not want a general answer, if not.
I have been running the Reef Salt for an AWC. I have found...
I currently have a Red Sea 350 aquarium total water volume advertised is 90 gallon, taking into account all of my live rock i would guesstimate that my water volume is around 65-70 gallons.
i currently have a good amount of fish, and not dosing anything at the moment only doing 5 gallon water...

I perform 1.25 gallon water changes daily and want to switch from IO to Auaforest Reef Salt. My question is, can I mix the salt in the RODI station and allow it to sit for a week or so by the tank in my reservoir, awaiting water changes? I know that the Aquaforest Probiotic Salt...
