  1. Welcome to my Red Sea Reefer 350 V3 build thread. What's the matter with me?! 😮 I said I was a die hard nano girl. I said I would never get a bigger tank. Good gosh I said I would never break the no-soaking-armpit rule. I am not new to Red Sea Tanks, my first TOTM on Nano-Reef was a RSM 130D. It was also featured on Marine Depot and Fluval was interested in using the tank on their product packaging. When I was ready to upgrade from the RSM, it was because my corals were outgrowing the tank and I was over the rounded corners. At that time they had not come out with rectangle square edged tanks and so I went with a CAD and on to my second TOTM. In the meantime Red Sea took out many new series of tanks, the reefer being one of the most popular. I was initially going to get the Reefer 250 which is a 3 footer. Not sure why or how the thought of going bigger entered my head. I was about to move apartments and dreaming of a new tank. I was over the drop-off that I had for 1.5 years. I went to a couple of LFS to see the 250 and 350 in person and opted for the 350 because it really did not look like a 4 footer tank. The height makes it optically appear stockier and therefore not as big. Of course try making RO water for a "not-so-large-looking" tank. Uh huh. I ordered the tank with some out of the ordinary requests and a lot of help from @Marine Depot. Well. It was a harrowing delivery. The company that brought it was just unprepared for a delivery of a 350 pound shipment. The truck was lower than the loading dock and the lift gate would not go all the way up. So the guys maneuvered the shipment on a manual forklift on the lift gate and lowered it to the floor. I was just cringing every second of that delivery. It was extremely stressful. So much so that I totally did not think to open the boxes and check if the contents were okay. Clearly they were not. The right side of the tank was completely smashed 😞 I wasn't just heartbroken, I was devastated. Not only was I extremely stupid about not checking the boxes, after the way they handled the delivery I should have not tipped them. Yes I tipped them. So now I was sitting with a broken shipment. If I had checked the boxes I would have refused the delivery and they would have hauled it away. Here I was sitting with two 4 foot boxes that I could not haul to the trash room. Red Sea was not only kind and gave me a taste of what awesome customer service is all about, I also got the good news that my replacement shipment was going to be the new V3 system which Red Sea had just revealed at Interzoo. V3 has a new refugium ready sump and different plumbing, also a bigger ATO. I think I am the first person in the US to get delivery of the V3 system. . The second delivery company was night and day different from the first. Whew. The tank arrived and I began building the cabinet. @Mariaface came over and helped me with it that evening. While I am talking about Maria, let me tell you how incredibly helpful she was every single day during the long week it took me to move my fragile items and the contents of the tank to a temporary 40B that I have setup in the new kitchen. I could not have done it without her help, she came over every day after work to help me. I don't even think I have thanked her enough and I hope I have not taken her for granted but, honestly, not sure I could have done it without her. Thank you Maria. Friday last week was a fish nerd kind of evening. Maria came over again and we worked on the cabinet some more. In the meantime I had made some mods to the tank and sump which I will detail in another post. My friend Michael drove all the way from Long Island to install my Nano Box ATI Retrofit to the ceiling. Unfortunately we were not prepared for the ceiling to be solid concrete! 😞None of the mollies, or anchors I had were for a concrete application. 😞 Anyway. By the end of Friday the stand was built, tank put on the stand, sump installed, overflow was leak tested and I plumbed the return. I put the sump on line and leak tested all weekend. Got 2K+views on the pump pumping water Cycling with a catfish 😄 Thank you for following my new build. #metrokat #reeflikekat #reefer350
  2. 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.

    Mochi's Sushi Tank 750XXL

    Updated 1-29-2020. So much has happened. Marriage, new jobs, etc. Reef wise, the tank made a sudden and unexpected upgrade to the Reefer 750XXL about half a year ago. Instead of making a new thread, I'll continue to post in this one. So in light of all that, here's an updated FTS and Mochi picture. FTS Current FTS as of 12.2020 Doggo

    Hey everyone, New to the group! Been in the reefing hobby for about 2 years now. It’s fun and with ups and downs. 😆 Looking forward on learning more from everyone. I currently have a 10 gallon mixed reef. Aquaclear 50 Powerfilter/chemipure nano Ehiem 100w heater Sb Reef LED For 1 year/ Now Radion xr15w gen4 DIY ato Jebao Sw-2 powerhead And currently dosing small amounts of kalkwasser. With weekly 2 gallon waterchange. PARAMETERS- Ph:8.2-8.3 ALK: 8.2 Calcium: 420-440 Magnesium: 1470 Nitrate: 5-10 Phosphate: .1 Here is some pictures from Before i started. And now.
  6. 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

    Ultimate NUVO 10 | Aquascape

    Hey guys, I’m new to the “nano reef forum” community but not new to nano reef keeping. Follow me and the progression of my Innovative Marine NUVO 10 build. My goal with this tank is to ultimately keep a thriving “sps and zoa” dominate tank “most likely” (more on that as time goes on). Last night I spent a couple hours aquascpaing my tank and here the end result. I fixed all the rock work together with some putty. Let me know what you think! I kept the aquascape “low” to allow the sps to grow upward and fill in the empty space beautifully. I also left a lot of empty space on the bare bottom to allow corals to fill it. Thank you you for tuning in! I’ll keep updating the tanks progress as time goes on! Tips and tricks are always helpful! Enjoy the rest of your day!
  9. I’m seriously considering upgrading my current Red Sea Reefer Nano(18x18x18, 21 gal display). the two replacement options are the Reefer 250 (35x21x20, 54 GAL display) and the waterbox 70 (24x24x22; 47 gal display). The demensions of the waterbox would allow me to use my currrent NanoBox Duo light without any supplementation and would allow more depth for aquascaping. The Reefer would allow for increased length and increased sump space, but would require an additional light purchase. All other equipment from my current aquarium could be used on either tank for the short term at least.

    Kevo's RS nano reefer

    Hello,Its been a while since ive been on here. Ive been strugling away with my old 55 gal tank for yrs going through every problem possible. Finally had enough after a power outage took out most of my tank other than the aptaisa lol. So I got a Red Sea nano reefer and took what was left and swaped it over.Lighting : AI hydra 52 ive had for a few yrsReturn pump: Current USA eflux dc 1050Powerhead: Coral Box qp-5 ( not sold on it so far, want it on the back wall on wave mode. On max speed cant get much of a wave motion going, but on other modes all most to strong on lowest speed)Skimmer: Bubble magus curve 5Additives: Aquaforest 1,2,3, pro bio s, np pro, build, energy, amino acids, vitallity.Fish so far: DaVinci clown, pajama cardinal, royal grammaStill need: Controler, doser Old tank infront of new tank
  11. PAST: I had my standard 10G (build thread: http://www.nano-reef.com/topic/364353-the-kurupt-10g-build/) going and everything was looking good and I was happy with what was happening. Then it boned me. The HOB AC's started to gurgle over randomly and water built up under the stand. It happened slowly so I never noticed anything wrong, until it started to leak out from under the stand. I had to act fast or lose the wife's support for this (not expensive at all) hobby. If I ruined the hardwood floors it would be a hard sell to get back up and running. I dug out and set up my old Fluval SpecV and threw the Fluval 206 canister I had on it. Got that up to temp and transferred rock, corals and inverts over. It was a very tight fit but it was only temporary. Moving the stand, which laid flat along the floor, it was worse than I thought! Way more water than I'd like to see soaking into the wood! Got to it in time though so there wasn't any real damage. Now, my original plan was to just break it down, dry the floor and put it all back together. That seemed like a LOT of work to do and NOT upgrade... I had plans to do so but not for a while. Thankfully I knew what I wanted so I called my LFS to see if they had anymore Reefer's in stock. One left. White. "Done. I'll be there in 15 mins." So that's what happened early one Wednesday morning to my 10G tank. RIP lil' guy.
  12. Alright everyone!
