Hello,

We just moved into our new house and have a perfect spot for a larger tank in our new front room. In our old house we had a 100 gallon display and 2 Waterbox 20’s, however we had to sell the 100 gallon while we were between places.

For the new build we decided to go with the Redsea Reefer 350. The tank has a 73 gallon display and a total system volume of 91 gallons. I opted for this size tank due to it being a little more reasonable for water changes with my busy schedule.

Build List:

Tank: Redsea Reefer 350
Sump: Redsea V3
Return pump: Ecotech Vectra M2
Wave maker: Aquaillumination Nero 5 x2
Lighting: Radion XR15 G5 pro x2
Sand: Carribsea
Rock: Carribsea life rock

Currently I’m still trying to decide on a skimmer for the tank. I am looking at the Nyos skimmers and the Dalua Great White, I am up to recommendations also.

Eventually I want this tank to be sps dominant and I will get a T5 hybrid fixture to put the radions in.

I am excited to start this build and can’t wait to see where it goes. I got the tank in last night and set up. Over the next couple of days I will be getting the rest of the shipments in and hopefully will be able to start getting the tank cycled this weekend.

Looking awesome so far! Don’t rush your cycle - the longer you give it to cycle the less problems you will have later! I love the Red Sea tanks. What are you thinking for lights or did it come with the Red Sea 90s?
Thanks, yep I’m taking the cycle slow. It’s still going through it. And I went with 2 radion G5 xr15 pro’s. Eventually I’ll either get a third or mount them in a t-5 hybrid.
 

What percentage of blue versus white lighting do you think makes the best coral growth combo?
