Coming up on 10 years in the hobby and I felt like it was time to make a change. I've done a slight downsizing from my 93 gallon cube into a Reefer 250. Spent the better part of the last 3 months getting the system up and running. Thankfully the fun is about to begin.

Equipment
  • Tank: RedSea Reefer 250 (White)
  • Sump: RedSea Reefer 250 Sump
  • Refugium: Mr Aqua 12" Cube
  • Display Light: AI Hydra 26 HD (3)
  • Refugium Light: AI Prime HD Freshwater
  • Return Pump: Ecotech Vectra M1
  • Skimmer: Nyos 120
  • Water Movement: Ecotech Vortech MP40 QD (2)
  • Controller: Apex Classic (EB8 x2, I/O module)
  • Auto Top Off: Tunze Osmolator 3155
I took some inspiration from some other RSR owners on these forums and want to thank them for their great ideas! Hopefully my thread can provide some inspiration to others as well. :)

Love your setup! Where'd you get all the parts for the plumbing from? Care to provide some instruction? Thanks!

ATO reservoir is inside the electronics cabinet. ATO is just in a 5 gallon acrylic ATO container next to the tank!

Are those ceramic bio-media rocks in your refugium? What else are you going to put in your refugium?
Right now just the media and cheato, maybe some more stuff in the future!


Sorry for the delay, haven't been updating the thread much. I'll get a picture update soon! (tm).
 

Have you ever used a spoon, hose and rubber band together to remove algae?
