Any suggestions for mounting power packs/adaptors for my lights and such in the cabinet? I’d love to strap them to the walls somehow instead of a clump on the base of the cabinet.
I've been using velcro adhesive. Seems to work pretty well. Only thing it didn't work well on was the Apex, the adhesive wouldn't stick to the head unit for some reason.

If you have a 425xl version 3 sump where are you mounting your ato sensor and which ato are you using? My 425 has virtually no room on the return side of the sump to fit a magnet outside of the sump... I assume I will need an ato that can have both the sensor and back side in the water? Any guidance would be appreciated.

What skimmer are you all using on your 170? My Curve 5 is overdoing it to the point where I have 0 nitrates. Any nano skimmers that are worth it?

You can buy power pack/adaptors brackets.

Hi all. For those who have hard plumbed the reefer 350, which pipe diameter did you used for the manifold (3/4" vs. 1"), why did you make that decision? I am thinking in plumbing the return from a Vectra M1 with 1" pipe and reducing tees to 3/4 inch for each of the manifold valves (e.g. reactors, UV). Should I go instead with 3/4" to 1/2"?

Unless you re-plumb your lines that sump won’t work. Shoot them an email and they’ll point you in the right direction for one that fits the 525.
That’s my goal, I’m going to replace my current sump and re-plumb everything. I had to tear my tank down to move and figured this was a good chance to implement things I’ve seen on the forum over the past year.

Anybody use a ClariSea on the Reefer 350 with the original sump (v1)? I searched the thread but couldn’t find any.

Anybody installed a ClariSea without removing the filter sock area? Just plumb to the skimmer area?

You don’t need to remove anything. Just place it anywhere it fits where the water flows through it.

Anyone try the Reefbreeders refugium light? I think it may be a good fit for the RSR250 sump and I've been debating going between that and Kessil H80.

Unfortunately I can’t comment on the reefbreeders but I use the H80 and it’s been super reliable and produces good growth.

I have the RSR 350 V3, thinking about cutting out the filter sock area and installing a Clarisea filter roller.

1. How hard it is to cut out that area and what did you use to do it with?
2. Any pics or tips on doing this modification?
3. Can you do this with the sump in place or do you drain the sump and remove?

Thanks,
Digging an old post back up. Were you able to do this successfully? Would love to see pics/examples. I can't seem to find anyone that has done it.

Thanks!
