I just ordered one for my Red Sea 170. Can you post how it is to build it?
Just finished the screen top. I have to say I do not like it at all. That's a couple hours of my life I will never get back. Looks like I will be going topless.
what about it do you not like?
There is a whole lot of measuring and cutting with a hack saw. I would take the time to measure it yourself as the measurements red sea provided did not work for me.
It just takes away from the nice clean lines and look I am going for.
Well I have some exciting news coming up. Still working out the details so stay tuned.
I ordered an artfully acrylic custom for my 525xl says it takes 6 weeks but they look so sweet. And can come with a feeding door. Expensive but worth it.
Here is a pic with just the 60” t5 ho miro-4 in coral plus and blue plus. Now it's time to decide on the main led lighting.
So far my options are 3 radion xr30w gen 4 or two kessil ap700. Will be running the two 60” t5 on the outside with the led running in the middle.
Why does it have to be so hard to make a decision on lighting?
Red Sea has already put a video out there on how to build it, but it would be cool to see from someone outside of the company and their view of it!
I would think the smaller net tops wouldn’t be too difficult. Unfortunately for me I’m working with a six foot tank and the brace is so flimsy it’s ridiculous and feels very cheaply made.
Just get a geisemann aurora or spectra
Ok, now I’m seriously considering this!
Hey have you checked out the tops from artfully acrylic? http://artfullyacrylic.3dcartstores.com/Red-Sea-Reefer-XXL-750-ClearView-Lid_p_2007.html
Might be more what you're looking for.
Yeah man I had ai hydra 52x3 and canned then for the 48 aurora on my 525 they have a 60 inch in both models and if you go look around a lot of people prefer the look / less light overflow of not having s fixture end to end on their tank. Plus it just looks clean.
Also I second this I have not seen one in person but mines on order as we speak and I can’t wait. Oh the fish possibility’s
Why is shipping $170? I have shipped items twice that size for a lot less. I shipped a les paul guitar and had ups box and pack it for me for $100.
Dude idk that ****** me right off too but I did it bc I feel there are no better lids out there
Cromag27 makes Reefer XXL 750 lids too https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/octo-lids™.292438/. I had him make me a two piece for my XXL 750 https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/octo-lids™.292438/page-5#post-4241864.
I placed an order with him and when I had a problem he never answered my emails. I would rather pay the $170 shipping.
Sorry to hear that.
