Just ordered the Red Sea Reefer 200XL G2 from BRS today. Have the XR15 Pro Gen 5 to pair with it. Can't wait till it gets here!

I will be going with FL aquacultured live rocks with this build, along with pre quarantineed fish suppliers.

I will need a Skimmer for it. Will be going with a heavy bio load.

This will be my first tank with sump.
Ive been using the simplicity 120dc skimmer with this tank its quite good imo

I don't know much about fleece rollers as the reefmat is my first. This is a brilliant piece of kit. It is definitely a keeper. I can already see the gunk it's pulling out. I love the app too. It's brilliant.

What exactly did you do to make it fit, I’ve got the same tank and very interested in batting one as well. Another picture of the sump from the side would help a lot. I’m not sure how it would work if I have to remove the black baffle separating the return pump and skimmer section. Thanks

Do you have the red sea reefer g2? The g2's have removable filter socks holder. Slides right off. Nothing to mod whatsoever. Even the corrugated tube has the attachment that links up to my downflow pipe on 200xl g2 perfectly. Truly plug and play on any G2 model.

When it's time to change out the rolls this is where it really shines. It is super simple and everything stays on.

Here's my log for the 1st week. I change the roll feed to the lowest setting and using roughly 9-10 inches a day. Get the filter roll replacement asap as they are running put of stock. I am hoarding them at the moment ....this device is picking up serious steam. Product of the year IMO.
