Red Sea reefer 170

Recommended Posts

Hi I have a question for owners of the reefer 170. I have a 350 and just bought a reefer 170. I unpacked it last night and found that there is two holes that is cut on the back for the drain but it's plugged. My reefer 350 did not have it, is this normal?

That's odd, possible they reuse material from their aio line.  I just inspected my 350 today and noticed the return plumbing is wrong.  It's labeled 170/260 and is about 3-4inches too long.  I emailed Red Sea and will likely stop by my lfs where I purchased it.  I'll check on their Red Sea tanks that they have on display for you.

 I believe these holes are for the plumbing in and out for the Chiller option.

Just dug up this post from the past, but the new Reefer 170s definitely don't have these holes anymore.

I have a RSR 170 that I bought in July and mine does not have those holes.  I heard that they are for light mounts.  Could be wrong though.
