  1. I decided to finally purchase a bigger tank and pulled the trigger on a white Red Sea reefer 170 this morning. I decided to get it from saltwateraquarium.com since you can select a freebie. I’m pretty excited and can’t wait to transfer everything out of my evo to the new tank. I still need to purchase skimmer, return pump, heater, sand, and rock. Can anyone tell me what’s the best way to transfer my sand and rock to the new tank? I want to make sure everything is done correctly so I don’t kill anything and want to start planning already

  3. Having a really hard time deciding which tank will be best. I want to plan this setup to be well thought out and cohesive before I start making any purchases -- am thinking end of summer will be the earliest I'll start buying. My first tank is the Fluval 13.5g (started this February) and it's going strong & have a 2.5g pico as well. Quite new to the hobby, and yes, already obsessed! Looking in the 40-65g range for size -- Red Sea or Waterbox both *seem* to be the top contenders in both size categories. I do love Innovative Marine tanks -- but seems a better deal to go with RS or Waterbox since they come with cabinet & sump. For setup and stocking, I'm thinking... SPS dominant, but not exclusive NanoBox duo or double duo, if needed I'd like to have a tank that's plumbed for a sump in cabinet & would like to have a refugium in sump for pod population Predrilled tank... I may be handy, but drilling glass & gluing plumbing is a nope for me Fish & equipment specific planning is TBD, dependent upon which tank I decide on Questions haunting me in the dead of night... Red Sea tank glass is so sexy. You know it, I know it, we all know it -- but what are people's impression of Waterbox tank glass in comparison? Generally, is one considered better than the other and why (beyond "branding")? Are there other tanks I should be considering that I just don't know about? Quick tank specs... Red Sea Reefer 170 43g total volume (34g display) 24.5"x20"x20" Waterbox Marine 45.2 44.3g total volume (29.6g display) 24"x18"x18" Red Sea Reefer 250 (rectangular shape) 65g total volume (54g display) 35.5"x21"x20" Waterbox Marine 60.2 (cubed shape) 61.8 total volume (39.8g display) 24"x24"x18" Other tanks I should consider? Thoughts, advice & tips & tricks appreciated 😬

    kinetic Red Sea Reefer 170

    Officially back in the hobby. Hopefully for a good long time. I've had a few tanks, my last setup was terribly expensive and, in my opinion, way too complicated. It was so complicated and automated I lost touch with the tank and everything kept dying. Spending tens of thousands of dollars just wasn't worth it. Now I'm back, but keeping things extremely simple and small. Latest update: (August 14, 2018): Magnifica moves, no more dinos. Latest Post.

  8. I have a clarification question regarding my alkalinity test. I have a Red Sea testing kit. I included a picture of the instructions and the reference page. The instructions say to add one drop of the KH indicator to obtain the “start” color. What’s confusing me is that my “start” color is a much lighter blue than the color they show. Should I add multiple drops to obtain the same color they show, and then start counting my drops? Or should I start counting drops right after my first drop, even though my start color is so light? Any help you can provide would be greatly appreciated! I imagine this will be an easy question to answer for someone with experience 🙂

  18. I recently picked up an almost brand new Red Sea Max Nano for the paltry sum of £250. The unit is in excellent condition and came with an upgraded return pump, cooling fan and free ceramic rock. The guy who sold me it had been trying to keep sea horses in it, unsuccessfully i might add. I had been keeping a 35L nano cube for over a year with just a compact T5 reef light and a hang on the back filter with live rock. This was generally successful and I was able to keep sofites in it no problem. Although algae and cyno were starting to become a problem as the tank and sand bed matured without any skimmer. I figured that I could move all my live stock and live rock over to my new red sea max nano and add in the ceramic rock and basically not have to go through a cycle . Since I am using mature live rock and not increasing the bio-load any ( The live rocks had a few mushrooms and other small sofites on it and 1 small duncan plus one small candy cane). I moved over all the CUC and the two fish i have a small azure damsel and green chromis. I did add a completely new sand bed with only a small amount of the old sand to seed it and used completely new water. I changed salt from reef crystals to coral pro for the new water and the aim is to try and follow the Red sea reef care program - the mix reef recipe : Salinity 34 ppt, Calcium 450ppm, Magnesium 1350ppm, Alkalinity 11.5dKH, Nitrate 1-2ppm, Phosphate 0.08-0.12ppm With this in mind I bought the rea sea, calcium, magnesium and alkalinity test kits. I got the Salifert Nitrate and Phosaphate kits as well as red sea reef foundation A,B and C liquids, reef energy A and B and a bottle of No-pox (cost a fortune). I kinda wish I hadn't cheap'd out on the nitrate and phosphate kits now... I have added an auto top up system to the max nanos own auto top up container so that I don't have to re-fill it every couple of days. I also plan to add an dosing pimp to this system. Currently the tank has been up and running for about 12 days and so far everything has went to plan and the corals and fish are looking better than ever except for my Astrea Snails which now seem to be falling over and getting stuck which they never really done before. I have also been keeping a close eye on the water params and have noticed that my alk and calc have dropped much faster than I expected. The alk dropped from 10/11 to 6dkh in 7 days and calcium was down to about 400/410.. and that's with a 10% water change. After doing some research and forum postings it appears that this is due to the new sand bed and ceramic rock. New sand and ceramic are known to cause to a certain amount of precipitation and it should settle down. I am currently doing my initial dosing of reef foundation A and B to bring the levels back into the desired range. I don't plan on starting the no-pox for anther couple of week to give the tank a bit more time to mature.

    STLCORALLIVORE’s 750xxl build

    So I found out today my luck has changed and now I’m going big and taking it home. im purchasing a red reefer 750xxl deluxe lights: 4 hydra 26’s I might add two more.. skimmer: bubble magus curve 9 dc return: jebao dc12000 (max3170gph) Wave maker: 2 maxspect gyre250’s rock: maybe 150lbs (need room for SPS to grow) (In the sump) 12lbs of Fiji miracle mud along with 4 brightwell legos to light the sump I’ll probably use one of the AI prime HD’s that is collecting dust. (Am I missing anything?) for this build I’m going to “seed” the tank with 20 gallons of my “dirty” water from my nano display(32biocube) and the rocks from there will be moved to the 750xxl then the biocube will become a frag tank since the lights that are installed in the hood are a DIY XR30 equivalent. As for the display fuge I’m deciding on tying that into the 750 or keeping it with the biocube as a whole system.. I’m undecided (what would y’all do?) all pf this will be coming together within the next week or so

  23. So I got a chance to get the top lids for my Reefer 170 after finding it on Facebook of all places I got excited. At first I was NOT convinced having to spend this amount of money just for a tank lid, well after some research regarding Lexan and their pros and cons, I STILL WAS NOT convinced until they came up with this FUSION VENT DESIGN. I got it ordered... When I received the Lid, I was surprised on how thick the Lexan used. I would say 1/4 inch thick, it has options for feeding doors, cable slots (per request/extra charge), and this nice moonlight kit, (not sure how they call it). All I can say is I’m blown away! Talking about fusion vents, it serves its purpose in preventing accumulation of tank evaporated water in the lid, I never had issues with shading or shadowing in my tank as well... Note that due to the demand, I had to wait over 7-8 weeks to get mine, but it is worth the wait. Also please take into account that these are custom made, so prices vary. I am not a seller, I am simply making you guys aware of this company as I have very good experience with them, and the product itself in my opinion is beautiful. you can contact them: https://safetoplids.com/ My brother and I made a video unboxing, if you guys are interested on how it looks on my tank, watch the video.

    Return Pump too big?

    I just got my Red Sea Reefer 170 filled yesterday. I've had to remove the surface skimmer combs from the top of the return column to keep the return pump from sucking the pump section of the sump dry. I think that this means that the return pump is too large :-). I'm able to run with the surface skimmer combs removed, and the Red Sea manual mentions that if higher rated pumps are used a modification of the surface skimmer may be required. Pump is a Sicce Syncra 3.5 Tank is a Red Sea Reefer 170 Have others had this issue? What's the best solution?
