    I would love to see a picture of someone standing between the two tanks to get an idea of scale. I still can't choose between the two.

    Really appreciate that. The 250 is not quite wide enough to be a ‘big’ tank. The 350 is perfect.

    Also she is very cute!

    Do you find the H80 to be enough for your system over the refugium? I was using the same light on my previous tank, but I got a reefer 350 this week and I was contemplating moving to something more powerful this time around.

    If you had a redo on the choice of refugium light, what would you pick?

    Hey James!!!! On my setup I am running a Brightwell N03 Brick as well.... With the combination... My Nitrates are currently Zero and my Phosphates are 0.02.. My Chateo grows just fine... I am going to increase my feeding to and cut back the amount of time the light stays on.
    If I had to redo... I probably wouldn't use to Brick and see if the Chateo can handle the Nitrates on their own..

    Neither tank is perfect when you distract us with a beautiful woman standing between them! ;)

    By the way, with both of those tanks on that wall along with the light systems you are using they give you a very sleek appearance. Looking at the chandelier it doesn't flow with the appearance of those tanks, how is the rest of the room decorated?

    The setup I was considering is very close to yours. Thanks for the insight. I’ll definitely use it. :)

    You have a great setup. I also have a Reefer 350 V3, however I have a few questions.

    What are you dosing? I have a DOS pump and I am only dosing Red Sea Calcium and Alkalinity.
    I was told that dosing near the return pump would clog up the Core 20. I am dosing in the first chamber where the water enters the sump. Is there any downside to this?
    I will continue to follow closely as I have a long way to go to get to your level.

    Thank you very much!!! I am actually dosing Triton Core 7 "Other Methods". I am dosing in the first chamber as well... I decided to do it there as well because that's the highest flow area of the sump.
