Hi, I have a Red Sea max s650 and I am wanting to change out the stock return pump for a reef octopus VarioS-8 pump... how are people doing it with the plumbing that comes with the tank? Are there metric adapter you have to but to make it work? Thanks so much.
I really need some advice. I bought a second-hand Red Sea Reefer 250. It has been filled and used for many years. The neoprene mat beneath the tank is clearly no longer level. While the tank is empty it has been crushed down to be totally flat, whereas at the back the mat is much thicker - in...
I figured it's high time I actually start one these build threads. Long time lurker.
I'll skip ahead of the boring details and just leave a series of full tank shots for now. I apologize in advance for the grainy nature of the photos - still trying to get the hang of aquarium photography...
I'm getting a bit nervous reading a lot of things about Red Sea Coral Pro Salt being incredibly cloudy for folks starting their tanks. I plan to fill my Nuvo 40 this weekend using Red Sea Coral Pro Salt.
I plan to follow directions, mix salt in at 68 degrees in RO/DI water for about 1...

I give in. I keep searching and searching, reading through threads, watching videos, trying to figure it ALL out on my own. But now it is time to just let go and give it up to a “higher power” - the R2R Forum.
Trying to find the magic, elusive flow in the tank - enough, but not too much...
I have been a member of this site for years but not very active at all lately, mainly because I have not had a tank up and running since 2013. My dive into reef aquariums started in 2008 when I started up my first tank; a 55 gallon (48x12x24) tank with hang on skimmer and T5...

Hey Reef2reef been using this site for years so I figured its time to make a build thread. I've been reefing for a little over 6 years now and have been around fish tanks of some kind literally since I was born, so I am not new to the hobby. Looking forward to see where this thread goes...
Purchased these to replace my filter socks

oh well , I will keep using socks and washing them
Just tried and didn’t forced it

This is the start of my Waterbox Crystal Peninsula 6026....replaced with a 5526 build.
Red Sea Reefer Peninsula 650 build!
Still a lot to do to get this baby up and running and things are already not going the way they should be, but heck lets go!
Onto the details!
So I screwed up and ran short on Red Sea Coral Pro mix. I need like 7 or 8 cups to finish this batch and get aquarium finished filling. Does anyone have any near Taunton, MA or know where I can get some locally?
