Another Risk, reefer 350

Recommended Posts


So my dream tank has been offered for sale, I trust the seller and its exactly what I want...a red sea reefer 350.  


Comes with...

  • Deltec DC skimmer.
  • Ecotech return (M1 I think) 
  • custom stealth sump.


Its a good price and was well maintained.  Here is what Im considering...


  • 48" Hybrid T5HO 4x54W Fixture - Aquatic Life
  • A360W-E Tuna Blue LED (Wide Angle) - Kessil x2
  • VorTech MP40QD  - EcoTech Marine x2
  • ApexEL Controller System - Neptune Systems
  • DOS Dosing and Fluid Metering System - Neptune Systems x2
  • Compact Rollermat - Theiling
  • 4 Stage Value Plus 150GPD Water Saver RO/DI System - Bulk Reef Supply (I have city water and high pressure)
  • UV sterilizer
  • bioblock
  • 2 part dosing


I love LPS but will try a few SPS as tank matures.  Im going heavy on fish.  I've learned my lesson on having a tank too low on nutrients.  I want a minimalist look so lots of negative space with aqauascape.

I want the best shot at success so Im going for T5 plus Kessil which I love.  I also want to reduce daily chores as much as possible hence the rollermat.  I do NOT want to deal with water changes at this scale so Im going to be doing autoWC using DOS and Apex.  Filterwise Im going to keep it simple.. rollermat, skimmer, bioblock, UV.  No fuge (mistake?).  Cant decide on sand/barebottom.  


After having a 10g for years this is a really big jump.  Im a little nervous.  How does my setup sound?
