I am in the middle of converting to the Triton method with my RedSea Reefer 350, after I have had a slow and painful crash.

Unfortunately, no-one makes a custom sump for the RedSea Reefer 350 so I have had to design my own around the 350 cabinet.

This one gives a refugium of 15% and the ATO is stored on the left-hand side now. I have also incorporated an adjustable watergate for the skimmer, so as to perfect the level.

I looked at the Synergy TS-26 but its refugium is 8 gallons or 30 litres. This equates to 10% of the display volume, which though it is within Triton specs of 10-20% I thought was still a little small. With a refugium I think bigger is better and mine works out at 15%, so spot in the middle. Also, I am a little limited for space where my tank is so I still wanted to incorporate the ATO from the original Reefer sump, and on the left-hand side now I have placed rails so I can do that, they also allow me to move it along so I can gain access to the return pump chamber.

One other slight problem is that I live in Dubai and shipping it here would be difficult.
