    Hello Reefer

    I'm Kelvin from NYC, I'm super super excited to share my reefer journal with your guys. I'm still kind of a newbie for saltwater aquariums but I'm always willing to learn from you guys to maintain a stable aquariums. I've been researching and planning for a few weeks and I'm finally pulled the trigger and got my red sea reefer 425 XL. My tank has been set up and finished cycling with Dr TIMS bacteria in two weeks.

    Nice tank.

    I was wondering where that vinyl hose going out the back of the stand leads to and it’s purpose.
