    hey everyone it's been a while since my last tank build. I got out of the hobby for a while and now I'm back lol. I went to my local lfs being bored one day and I stumbled upon a reefer 250 only used for 3 months and in perfect condition soooooo I wasn't reall in the market for a tank yet but hey couldn't hurt to ask for the price!!! They told me $2200 and I was like ahhh no I called a few days later and made my offer to the owner at $1000 cash and about 20 mins later the owner called back and said come and get it lol so I couldn't turn down a killer deal on pretty much giving the setup away. I will be posting pics of the progress being made. Thanks for looking

    What came with the setup

    -Red Sea reefer 250 with the stand
    -Red Sea sump and ato res
    -artfully acrylic screen top
    -built in gfo strip and cabinet light
    - x2 ai hydra 26hd lights with the Red Sea mounting arms.
    -X2 mp40wqd new in boxes
    -vectra m1 return pump like new
    -reef octopus 150 classic skimmer
    -reeflink

    IMG_2163.JPG IMG_2166.JPG IMG_2167.JPG Update I sold off the reeflink and 1 of the mp40s and I will be keeping 1 mp40wqd on the side glass and will have 2 mp10wqd on the back glass for more randome flow. This tank is going to be heavy in sticks....also I realized I had a cracked main overflow bulkhead and of corse Red Sea tanks use special bulkheads so the waiting game begins to start and nice vinegar bath on the dt.

    Just a little update. The tank has been cycling for about 3 weeks now and I am currently messing with the aquascape until I get what I want this time. I am going for pillar/shelf type of aquascape and it's coming along nicely a few more days and it should be done

    Does your Reeflink control Hydras?
