Hey everyone, I just ordered a new RSM E260 setup and it should be here by the end of the weekend. I would love to hear your ideas, experience, feedback, etc. on this tank. Also, if you have the same setup or one that is similar, what did you stock it with?

I’ve had one since they first came out. Planned on getting the sump option but had nothing but success so I never did. Just rescaped after 3 years because it was overgrown. Doing SPS only this time. 3 months in, everything is growing well. Love the simplicity of it.

Livestock is yellow tang, six line wrasse, fire fish, royal gramma, flame angel and 2 clowns And 2 cardinals. I use a bit more rock than what is popular these days with lots of pass through tunnels and caves. Helps with the bioload since I am SPS dominant.

. Everything was tiny 1” drags.
Looks great! I can't wait to get started on mine. My LFS just got it in, now I just need to coordinate with a friend to help me pick it up. Do you find that your bioload is maxing out the tank, or could you get away with a few more small fish?

I could probably get a couple more small ones but everyone is established and kill anything I add such as the yellow chromis I tried. Only lasted an hour. ☹ I was bummed. It looked cool as heck under the LEDs. Way better than it did in the fish store.
