Hey guys, new around these parts.

I’ve been Ive the hobby for a few years, maybe going in 5 now? And always loved larger tanks.

Started off with a 55 gallon that failed miserably due to lack of knowledge, then upgraded to a 150 tall which was a bit better. But decided it wasn’t big enough, so went to a 300! That one went good, till moving day. So I sold it and went to a biocube temporary till we settled down. Fast forward 2 years, and I was ready to upgrade. Over the last 6 months I bought all the top of the line equipment, and a 250 gallon custom tank from concept aquariums. But the wife didn’t know, until I brought the tank home. Her response was “that’s not going in my house”.

2 months later, we came to a compromise on a Red Sea reefer 425xl, and that’s where the story stops for now.

Here’s a link to my build thread on the Redsea, feel free to follow on the journey! It should hopefully be interesting: https://www.reef2reef.com/threads/red-sea-425xl-upgrade.640887/#post-6405004

Here’s some pictures of my tanks over the years:

Welcome! You really cant go wrong with a Reefer! Tank looks great! I wont ask about the surprise 250g but it sounds exactly like something I would do :)

As @crusso1993 mentioned I will have a Nyos 120 hitting the for sale page early next week. I upgraded to a 160 but this 120 works great!

Best of luck! Shoot me a PM if you’re interested.

You really can’t go wrong with the reefer, it threw a wrench in my stocking list fish wise unfortunately, but, I’m definitely happy with the out come.

I’ll send you a PM right away.
