Well here's my Redsea reefer 350. This will be my 4th reef tank and hopefully the best yet. My reef savvy tank will be cleaned and and placed in the basement as a frag tank. The quality of this tank past my expectations. Tried to do some decent wire management compared to my last tanks. Still have to clean up a few things but for the most part is organized and easy to remove something if need be. During the tank swap most of the coral I was trying to save died except my ORA red Goni and a rainbow bta. So stocking will be a slow and steady process. Onto the life system of the tank

your sump looks 10000x better than mine. nice work!

haha thanks, I'm gonna try my best to keep this looking good. Gonna order a nanobox beam for my fuge light and put some egg crate together for that. Unsure of whether or not to keep the curve 5. I still can't turn it on as it just goes nuts and over flows, I gave it a vinegar bath last week, I put a bottle of Dr. Times one and only in last Friday

I sold my curve 5 for the exact same reason. Even when it stopped overflowing, it would suddenly start again. And when it overflows, skimmer waste splatters all over the sump.

Looks awesome! I too have a 350 and also made a manifold sump. I like yours alot- I was looking into the BM5 but opted against it. I have had a great experience with Reef Octopus. If you have no budget in mind check out the NYOS 120.

 

You wouldn't by chance also be over on r2r as well?

Thank you! hopefully will get the nanobox mimic over it this weekend.

How's that quiet drive?

I picked up an upgrade kit... Will it be less noisy?

Super quiet, the vectra I don't even hear at all. The mp40qd is silent, i can hear my mp10 at 75% sitting on the couch. Not crazy audible but i you can hear the ramp up and ramp down.

Right, same with mine... the 60%++ range starts to get "whiny"

 

Is your 10 a QD also or just the 40?

Just the 40

Gotta remember to put some pics up of the new light. I dig it! Dave did a legit job. Also may just hunt for a new skimmer for black Friday deals cause I still cannot turn the curve 5 on without it going nuts. Not sure what to try out
