    FTS 8/29/21 1st full tank shot 7/12/21 Yep, It finally happened. After years of contemplating, the BC 29 is finally gone, it's habitants awaiting a new and improved abode. My dreams of a custom built tank and stand eventually turned to nightmares, so I finally settled on the Redsea Reefer 250, which I'm learning, as I put this thing together, was probably the smartest move. Having no experience with sumps, I would have been totally lost trying to put something together on my own. I'm still not sure what to do with all of the chambers, but I'm sure, with the help of everyone here, I will figure it out. So far alI have is the tank the sump and the stand, slowly get put together as we find a little time here and there to get the jobs done. I've no doubt that eventually, hopefully sooner rather than later, the coated MDF stand will be replaced with something much nicer-I'm thinking reclaimed wood... More to come

    Ocean_dreamer89's Red Sea Reefer 250

    Hello! About a year and a half ago, I started my first reef aquarium which was a BioCube 16. Even though I had been told nano tanks can be hard to maintain due to the small water volume, I had a great time with that tank and learned a TON. For me, it worked very well to "get my feet wet" in the reefing world. The small size and (relatively) cheaper cost, allowed me to get started and find out if I really enjoyed it and would stick with it. I always knew that if I did really enjoy reefing, that I would eventually upgrade to a larger aquarium. I had originally wanted to go with a RedSea Reefer 425XL, but a friend of a friend decided to sell his RSR 250 and it was a deal that I could not pass up! The tank had been up and running for about six months before he took it down and it is in near perfect condition. I bought the tank back in August 2020 and today (2/5/21), I am finally adding water to it. I'll add more details in subsequent posts, but just wanted to get this thread started and say Hello!
