    Red Sea Reefer 170 plumbing

    I am looking to buy a red sea reefer 170 tank only for $250 CAD soon, the only thing is it comes with none of the plumbing, return nozzles, overflow strainers, sump or stand. This is okay with me, I can make a good stand, and I have a spare sump. The only thing is I have no idea how to do the...

    Hi All, I've been a lurker on R2R for a long time and finally built up the courage (and funds) to pull the trigger on a Red Sea Reefer 170. I have had freshwater planted tanks my entire life, but this is my first attempt at a reef aquarium. I am aiming for mixed reef at first, but ultimately...

    Red Sea Reefer o-ring size

    Hi everyone! I’m hoping you can help me with a plumbing question! I moved my Red Sea Reefer 170 to a new apartment last weekend. When I set it back up, I discovered that the return and drain lines to the sump are leaking. I believe the o-rings need to be replaced as they are looking kind of...

    After being out of the hobby since 2004, the bug bit hard last year. A quick browse through the LFS and I ended up with a Nuvo10. Less than a month later, I had already upgraded to a 25 Lagoon and looking at another upgrade. 2 months back into the hobby and I knew I wasn't going to turn back...

    I’m starting my Red Sea Reefer 170 build shortly. I just ordered my Reefer 170 and I do not have it yet. This will be my 2nd setup. My first tank I set up a little less than 2 years ago, it was a 75 gallon setup with a 30 gallon sump. I then added a 40 breeder to the system about a year ago...
