Red Sea Reefer 350 Journey

Recommended Posts

Txplicit

So I pulled the trigger on a Red Sea Reefer 350 and all (all that I can foresee) needed equipment.

*RSR350 
*Simplicity 2100 DC return pump
*Simplicity DC240 protein skimmer
*2x Radion xr15 gen4 pro 
*1x Radion xr30 gen4 pro for center tank
*Inkbird dual stage controller with 300watt finnex titanium heater
*2x Aquamaxx standard size reactors
*Coral life twist turbo 3x UV
*Hydrofil 5 gallon Ato reservoir
*Tunze 3155 osomlator ato
*Jebao dp4 dosing pump (trying dosing so went cheap) will upgrade to bubble magus down the road
*maxspect gyre xf350 2 pump and controller
*60lbs marco rocks
*marco mortar kit
*1/4" acrylic rods for aquascaping reinforcement
*2x 1/2" bulkheads to convert oem ato into fuge
*AI fuge light
*Ai Tank mount
*60lb special grade argonite live sand
*Dr Tim's 1 and only

I'm like a kid waiting on Christmas delivery.  Red Sea has yet to contact me about drop ship bu then it's the holidays so I figure I'll be patient.

Planning on hard plumbing everything together and building a storage cabinet next to the tank for controllers and cable management. 

I'll be posting pics and updates on hard plumbing and/or equipment reviews.  Wish me luck y'all.

60% of hardware in.  Starting aquascape using Marco's rock and Marco's 400 mortar. Acrylic rods are pinned to hold shelves.

Finally got the plumbing adapters cemented to hard pvc.  Letting dry 24 hours before j tighten it all up for leak test.

 

Aquascape is coming along.  Lmk what you all think and any advice is appreciated.

Update and heads up: found out white egg crate leeches phosphates into system causing algae bloom.  Took it out.  Tank is now up and cycling 2 weeks in.  Added dr Tim's and fritz turbostart 1 werk after added 2 bottles of coraline algae in a bottle, chaeto, ulva, and 2 jars of pods from algae barn.

Sorry been busy.

 

Update: parameters are stable and I have been cycled for 2 weeks.  Added livestock, sea lettuce took off, pods population seeded although j am adding 32 oz more from algae barn for safe measures.

I agree there. Put it down and leave it. Time better spent planning how to better it.
