Time for a 5 month update. Corals growing out very well. Radion lights at 65% and CO2 scrubber with air recirculated through skimmer cup. Keeps pH between 8.3 and 8.4.

Amazing setup! Interested to see what you are dosing, how old is this setup?
I setup the 425 XL in September 2020. Took 4 weeks to fully cycle (I used Dr Tim’s one & only). Then started switching fish and easier corals over from my Red Sea Reefer 170. 3 months later completely migrated 170 contents to 425.

Dosing 80ml B-Ionic Alk and 60ml of Calc.

I see, well that is definitely working, as we can see. I am in the process of setting up a Reefer 350 and will also be transferring inhabitants. Will be looking forward to your updates.

Stunning! You are obviously doing a tremendous job! May I ask how you take your tank pictures? I've been experimenting with different light and iPhone settings and even bought an app designed for taking aquarium pictures, but I'm still struggling with tank photography. Thanks!

Your corals are growing so fast! Great setup!

Can you please tell me the dimensions of the sump section of the cabinet? What do you think the maximum sump length is, if you didn't use the Red Sea sump?

Thank you!
